Film Screening - Chasing Heroin: Investigating an American Crisis
August 15th at 5:00 PM at the Pickford Film Center
In honor of National Community Health Center Week, Unity Care NW and Sea Mar are sponsoring an informative evening to discuss and raise awareness of the opioid crisis sweeping the nation and affecting our community.
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 U.S. drug policy, and exploring what happens when addiction is treated like a public health issue, not a crime.
