We believe it is possible to change a self-destructive youth culture,
but we need you.
"OPIOIDS" SHORT FILM | THE UNTOLD STORY OF MILLIONS
Two million Americans abuse prescription opioids every year. This epidemic crosses cultural and socioeconomic boundaries. Opioid addiction is a rampant issue, yet it is rarely discussed.
This is the untold story of millions of Americans. This film was created to empower those dealing with opioid addiction to speak up and seek help.
Our ultimate goal is to facilitate the conversation of character in American youth culture. This is where you come in.
The following resources are to be used in conjunction with the video.
ONE DECISION "Educate yourself before deciding a drug should be a part of your life." This is the message repeated again and again from those in recovery from addiction. Short film by Adam Stewart, WV
SCHOOL LESSON PLANS
The school lesson plans are non-sectarian in nature and appropriate for use in public schools.
The American Council on Addiction and Alcohol Problems and American Character Builders hopes to continue to create generation-changing videos for use in schools, churches, nonprofits, and individuals in need. These videos will challenge students to consider their actions and think critically about relevant issues.
By taking powerful stories and statistics, we hope to give students a free, engaging, and entertaining resource that challenges them to build their character and rise above the cultural bottom line.
