People – Here’s a Sunday, Fayetville showing of the groundbreaking documentary from Greg Williams, of The Anonymous People; ‘Generation Found’.
Sunday, May 7th 5:30 – 7:30 pm – Haymount United Methodist Church – 1700 Fort Bragg Rd. Fayetteville, NC 28303
In 2015, Cumberland County lost 51 citizens to drug overdose (over a 400% increase from 2000). That’s a packed school bus full of human beings. On average, NC loses a school bus full of people each month to prescription opioid overdose alone! 1 in 7 of us have a substance use disorder and 9 out of 10 of us began substance use in adolescence. The Generation Found screening and panel discussion will be the final of a three-part series at Haymount UMC to raise awareness and find solutions. Recovery Communities of North Carolina is delighted to partner with the faith community, a powerful ally in the #NCRecoveryMovement.
Panelists and Presenters:
Donald McDonald, MSW, LCAS, Director of Advocacy and Education
Elizabeth Ramos, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist
Darlene Hopkins, PhD, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist
From the creators of The Anonymous People comes Generation Found, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. And so in one of the biggest cities in America, visionary counselors, law school dropouts, aspiring rock musicians, retired football players, oil industry executives, and church leaders came together to build the world’s largest peer-driven youth and family recovery community.
