The Hungry Heart
Today, at Unified Arts time, Renaissance and USA watched a movie about drug addiction. The Hungry Heart was filmed in St. Albans about addicts trying to recover. It followed young adults and adults struggling with drug abuse. Most of the individuals went to Mousetrap Pediatrics and worked with Dr. Holmes to break their habits using therapy and another drug called Suboxone. Suboxone helps to subsided the craving for other drugs. Many of the addicts had been close to death and had barely survived; some with major health problems. We learned that the pain relief was not worth it. In the long run, being drug free is definitely the way to be. We will continue the conversation on Thursday when the speaker comes back to speak to our community.
