Dying in Vein, the Opiate Generation
Dying in Vein is an intimate and deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction. The film follows two young women trying to get clean, a 22-year-old in recovery, a family grieving the loss of their son, and a team of ER doctors trying to save their patients. Through these four stories, the film explores the pill to heroin pipeline and the shame and blame that surrounds the disease of addiction.
The film looks at the aftermath of death on loved ones, the daily commitment of sobriety, the reality of considering treatment after multiple relapses, and the culpability of our medical communities in the opiate crisis.
At the Tiburon Library located at 1501 Tiburon Boulevard in Tiburon, on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
