Dying In Vein: The Opiate Generation
On January 31, 2018, The Center for Health and Counseling and the Student Government Association hosted a showing of the film "Dying in Vein". The film showcases a deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinema verite style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, family grieving the loss of their son, and an emergency room physician trying to save one patient at a time. Through these stories, the film explores the contemporary belief of "living life pain free," and the shame and blame that exists around addiction. Keynote Speaker, Director Jenny Mackenzie, Ph.D., spoke after the film with a Q&A session.
