More than 85 million Americans have been touched by addiction, whether they’ve faced the disease themselves or have supported family members or friends through a substance abuse issue. Unfortunately, the stigma and shame that so often surround drug and alcohol addiction prevents many from getting the help that they need.
Together with Moo Studios, Consulate Film Editing and director Pamela Hanson, we developed a poignant yet brief documentary highlighting the true stories of people who have faced addiction in some way. Those featured speak candidly about their experience with substance abuse—some are in recovery themselves, others have helped friends or family members recover and some have sadly lost loved ones to the disease.
We encourage you to view and share the video. Together, we can help others understand that they aren’t alone when facing addiction.
We thank all those who collaborated on the piece for helping us spread the word about this important health issue.
