There is a one in four chance that your teenage son or daughter has tried prescription medications that were not prescribed to them by your family physician or dentist.  In the last ten years, addiction to painkiller medications and prescriptions has increased 400% and taken hold in our communities. Every 19 minutes in our country, we lose a person to opiate addiction, which is no different than taking heroin.  


Tragedy and Hope: Stories of Painkiller Addiction
Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. on WNED-TV

WNED-TV’s production, “Tragedy & Hope: Stories of Painkiller Addiction,” shares the experiences of young people from Western New York who are struggling with addiction recovery. Most of the young people are making progress towards wellness and they discuss their long term fight for recovery; others have not been as fortunate. By utilizing their personal stories backed by addiction treatment specialists, researchers and parent insights, the hope is to raise awareness and advocacy for this serious epidemic in our community.  Prescription painkiller addiction has no gender, race, or social status symbolism; it can affect anyone, at any age.  We encourage you to watch this program with your entire family, no matter how old or young they are. Get informed and take action.

Tragedy and Hope: A Call to Action
Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 9 p.m. on WNED-TV 

Broadcast live from the WNED studio, “Tragedy and Hope: A Call to Action” features the WNED-TV produced documentary “Tragedy and Hope – Stories of Painkiller Addiction.”  The program will air in segments, breaking away to the studio for follow up discussion with parents and local experts, designed to increase awareness of an epidemic plaguing our teens – addiction to prescription painkillers and other medications.  Drug counseling volunteers from our community partnerships will be on hand to take phone calls from viewers and offer information packets to those interested in further information on the epidemic of painkiller addiction.

Educator and Community Resources 
Classroom and community engagement resources & lesson plans are being developed for middle, high school, and collegiate students as well as for parents and community groups. Find more information about these valuable resources here in November 2013.
