Warning: This Drug May Kill You
Saturday April 27 at 9.30pm AEST
Warning: This Drug May Kill You takes an unflinching look at the devastating effects of opioid addiction in the U.S., profiling four families whose lives have been decimated by addictions that all began with legitimate prescriptions to dangerous painkillers. Through the personal and emotional stories of people on the front lines of this epidemic, the film sheds light on the struggles of ordinary people who were prescribed highly addictive opioid pain medications, which are too often the gateway to a very similar opioid, heroin.
Featuring home videos and photos that humanize this public health crisis, along with important statistics and information about opioid use and treatment, Warning: This Drug May Kill You is an eye-opening look at a terrifying epidemic that is devastating communities across this country, and the toll it has taken on its victims and their families.
