Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction
Straight Forward: The Truth About Addiction is a WisconsinEye documentary about opioid addiction and recovery in Wisconsin. Every path to addiction and every path to recovery is different and there is hope. This documentary tells the story of several young Wisconsinites through their honest, in-depth interviews about getting started, hitting rock bottom and their journey through recovery. Produced by Anthony Wood, director from Smoking Monkey Media and Skye Tikkanen, counselor at Connections Counseling, this 50-minute documentary also features parents of children living with addiction and a child whose mother died of an overdose. The goal is to have the documentary screened in every middle school and high school in the state. Lesson plans are also available for classroom use, free of charge.
