Winning The Fight will present the documentary film “NOT ME” followed by a panel discussion comprised of cast members and other professionals. “NOT ME” is a film about eight separate individuals that collectively tells a complete story of addiction, denial and recovery and depicts the honest and heartbreaking struggle so many families face today. The goal is to reach families currently dealing with addiction and to prepare families who may experience it in the future with critical information and resources. With drug overdoses on the rise, the need to open a dialogue and reduce the stigma associated with addiction is necessary to winning the fight. The film is appropriate for children, 9 and older, and families are encouraged to attend together.
WTF – Winning The Fight is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that provides drug education, support and necessary resources to youth and families that suffer from the disease of addiction.
