This documentary has never been screened outside the State of Utah until now. Columbia Pathways To Recovery is pleased to present to you the East Coast Premiere of Dying in Vein – The Opiate Generation.

From Academy Award Winning Producer Geralyn White Dreyfous

Directed by Jennie Mackenzie

Dying in Vein is a deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinéma vérité style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, a family grieving the loss of their son and an Emergency Room Physician trying to save one patient at time. Through these stories, the film explores the contemporary belief of ‘living life pain free’ and the shame and blame that exists around addiction. The film looks at the impact of socioeconomic class on our broken treatment system, and how a group of emergency care physicians are working to save their patients from the opiate crisis.

A Q&A Discussion panel will follow the screening. Tickets are free and it is open to the public.
