Opiate Effect
9 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Great Documentary! Really makes you think about so many things, on so many levels. The state of our youth and opiate abuse. The state of our Health care providers and prescribing opiates and where we go from here! All should take the time to check out this documentary! Went to see this at The Burlington Film Festival last month. My husband and I got to meet Skip the Dad of the young man that died. What courage he has to present this film and speak at local schools and colleges throughout New England. Really should be a part of orientation for parents and students at the high school and college level. I wish Skip, Derek and everyone involved in this documentary success, they deserve it!
