FILM ON JOURNEY TO SOBRIETY
"WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?" - HOST A SCREENING
A short film on the importance of Faith & Family on the Journey to Sobriety.
"The far-reaching effects of addiction are ripping through communities across the country. In his new film What About the Kids? writer and director Jim Wahlberg gives us a poignant look into the true cost of this epidemic through the eyes of Chloe, an 8-year-old girl whose parents are addicted to opioids.
Informed by his own battle with addiction, Wahlberg’s film is a touching narrative that illuminates the importance of faith and family on the journey to sobriety."
