One Choice Can Destroy

ONE COMMUNITY

98 + FATAL OVERDOSES

1000’S  OF LIVES OVERTAKEN BY DRUGS

If there is a war on drugs then Jodi Barber and Christine Brant are on the front lines doing battle in their community.  These two mother’s have accomplished their goal of making a short length documentary featuring the struggles of addiction in the lives of young adults.

Jodi’s son Jarrod died from an overdose of a prescription drug she had never heard of until the night he died. His peers had heard of it though, and within weeks more young lives were gone and many more kids were left to battle addiction.

Realizing the accidental death from overdosing was an epidemic, not just in their suburban community but across the U.S., they decided to make a documentary to show at school assemblies, in community centers, and at youth groups.  This documentary, Overtaken, features the battle of addiction as told by those whose lives were overtaken by drugs. You will understand the struggle the brave young people take on each to stay alive.

The goal of this film is to save lives by educating youth on the truth about addiction and the deadly consequences that drugs often have. Approved by school district superintendents and featuring specialists in the fields of medicine and addiction, this film delivers accurate and up to date information on the type of drugs infiltrating communities and how to help youth avoid them.
