In a 12-part video series SEED (Students Empowered to End Dependency) interviews young people who have struggled with Substance Abuse Disorder (SUD). Most are now participating in recovery programs that have enabled them to pursue a healthy lifestyle. The series also speaks with several medical experts to explore the science behind the disease model of chemical dependency and features many Maine people on the front lines helping those suffering from Substance Use Disorder as different recovery methods are explored.
The series premiered on on local TV stations in late April early May and is now available on the Voices of Hope and Recovery Website.
SEED is a coalition of students and adults from 5 school systems and the Scarborough Police Department. The five school systems participating in this project are Bath, Gorham, Scarborough, Windham, and Yarmouth.
