Flood: The Overdose Epidemic in Canada (2019)

1h 13min | Documentary/Indie Film | October 18, 2019 (Canada)

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 increasingly-frightening overdoses. Between January 2016 and December 2018, there have been more than 12,800 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."
