As our nation moves into what appears to be a new reality arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the health, safety and well-being of our staff, community and their families are top priorities for us. Through this challenging time, our work continues.

We created a discussion guide to accompany the film, in the hopes that it will foster discussion about substance use and provide insight into how families address addiction.
