The Missing Conversation
The United States is suffering a drug and alcohol addiction epidemic. “Uprooting Addiction,” (formerly the Recovering Community movie) is an in-production documentary film produced by Hope Payson and Tory Estern Jadow of RC Productions, focusing on how this epidemic is affecting the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. While the Northwest Corner may seem, to some, a pocket of great beauty and tranquility, our communities are affected and devastated by addiction problems like the rest of the country. Our film focuses on the specific and heartfelt stories of people with histories of trauma and addiction. Through interviews and other footage, the viewer is offered a unique window into the hardships and triumphs of an often marginalized, misunderstood, and stigmatized population.
