Midcoast Recovery Coalition to screen ‘Generation Found’ at Camden Public Library

Event has passed


CAMDEN — The Camden Public Library and the Midcoast Recovery Coalition will offer a screening of the documentary Generation Found on Thursday, June 14 at 6:30 p.m.

This film screening is made possible by the Midcoast Recovery Coalition. A period of questions and answers with Dr. Ira Mandel of the Midcoast Recovery Coalition will follow the screening.

From the creators of the groundbreaking film, The Anonymous People, comes Generation Found, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. And so in one of the largest cities in America, visionary counselors, law school dropouts, aspiring rock musicians, retired football players, oil industry executives, and church leaders came together to build the world's largest peer-driven youth and family recovery community.

Independently filmed over the course of two years, Generation Found takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the "War on Drugs." It is not only a deeply personal story but one with real-world utility for communities struggling with addiction worldwide.
