The group came together to raise awareness of addiction and the impact it has on individuals, families and communities by taking a fresh approach.
We aim to reduce the stigma associated with having an addiction, promote the benefits of recovery and increase access to support for people in need.
By giving people the opportunity to experience through film a diverse range of real life stories from people affected by addiction it may help reduce the stigma of addiction.
