“Chasing Heroin: Investigating an American Crisis”

In honor of National Community Health Center Week, Unity Care NW & Sea Mar are sponsoring an informative evening to discuss and raise awareness of the opioid crisis sweeping the nation and affecting our community.  This event occurs on Tuesday, August 15th.

Frontline and PBS (the makers of the documentary) describe the film as a searing, two-hour investigation that places America’s heroin crisis in a fresh and provocative light. It tells the stories of individual addicts, but also illuminates the epidemic’s years-in-the-making social context, deeply examining shifts in the U.S. drug policy, and exploring what happens when addiction is treated like a public health issue, not a crime.

Tickets are FREE for this sponsored event but must be obtained prior to the film in order to secure your spot. Stop by the Pickford Film Center at 1318 Bay St. to get tickets.
