We created our documentary to be an integral part of our program; it doesn’t have the same value on it’s own. The film tells true stories about addiction and hope, but our panel sessions are what makes those stories real, tangible, and meaningful.
We coordinate with schools and community organizations to offer showings of our film and panel discussions. If you’d like to work with us, request a showing or learn more about our mission.
