The Project CARE Coalition will host a private screening of GENERATION FOUND for the Richland Two community. GENERATION FOUND is a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. GENERATION FOUND takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.” The Project CARE Coalition seeks to create conditions that empower families, schools, and communities to reduce substance abuse and other high-risk behaviors.
