About the Documentary

Synopsis: There’s no sugarcoating it – Canadian lives are being taken at an alarming rate by apparent overdose-related deaths. Lives are being senselessly taken at the hands of devastating overdoses. Between January 2016 and September 2019, there have been more than 14,700 apparent opioid-related deaths. Flood: The Overdose Epidemic in Canada is a documentary that aims to reduce the stigma around substance use disorder (SUD) and inspire others to take action.
“From major cities to small towns this issue has taken lives, ruined families and flooded our communities.”

Warning: This documentary trailer contains profanity.
