School Edition

For Middle & High School

This edition of Chasing Hope (CH) which was created with the middle and high school youth in mind, goes way beyond the scope of educating an adolescent on the facts surrounding opioid abuse.  After watching this film the viewer will understand addiction, why risks are so much greater in adolescence, what comes with addiction including incarceration, violence, and possibly death.  The viewer will get a chance to look at their own coping skills, how they make decisions, and learn how closely linked prescribed opioids are to heroin.  Compliant with Governor Kasich’s educational requirements to teach opioid prevention, this film comes with a discussion guide which opens up a dialogue between presenters and youth for grades 6-12.

To Be Released in 2019

This documentary, scheduled to be released sometime in early 2018, takes the issue of opioid abuse and addiction and examines it in a way that helps to understand not only how to prevent and address this crisis, but takes an honest look at why recovery is so difficult and how does anyone in addiction find recovery and stay sober?  We look at the stigma behind the “junkie” mindset, and we expose the story behind the behavior, and more importantly, we strive to understand it.
