Sen. Schachtner to host screeing of: Written-Off: The Journals Will Explain Everything
October 25, 2018 at 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Faculty, staff, students and the community are invited to a free screening of the award-winning film “Written Off: The Journals Will Explain Everything,” followed by a panel and community discussion on America’s opioid crisis.
The film chronicles the life of Matthew Edwards, whose addiction to opioids began at age 15, after being prescribed pain medicine for a minor surgery. His writing reveals the secrets he tried so hard to conceal through a decade long struggle to escape addiction, including how he explained his changing body by telling people he had cancer.
Opioids cost the U.S. economy more than $500 billion a year.
