GENDER TRANSITIONING IN RECOVERY

The desire to market to an LGBTQ community dealing with deadly substance abuse issues is increasing; however, the necessary expertise and familiarity with the community is not growing at the same pace.

Dr. Ronaye Calvert

Executive Director of REVIVE Detox, REVIVE Detox Los Angeles

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. Screening at the Laemmle’s NOHO 7 in North Hollywood on 10/23/17 at 1pm for the Reel Recovery Film Festival. It is also currently streaming on Hulu right now.
