Abstract:

Warning: This Drug May Kill You takes an unflinching look at the devastating effects of opioid addiction in the U.S., profiling four families who have seen their lives tragically changed by abuses involving their loved ones, whose addictions arose due to doctors' prescriptions of dangerous painkillers. Through the personal and emotional stories of those who have dealt with addiction, either as a user or concerned family member, the film sheds light on the struggles of ordinary people whose lives turned on a dime after minor and major ailments led to the over-prescription of highly addictive opioids, which are often the gateway to heroin. Featuring home videos and pictures that humanize this health crisis, along with important statistics and information about opioid use and treatment, Warning: This Drug May Kill You is an eye-opening account of a terrifying epidemic America faces today, and the toll taken on addicts and their families.
