CONCORD UNIVERSITY TO BRING UPLIFTING ADDICTION CRISIS DOCUMENTARY TO CAMPUS
 

 
ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University’s collegiate recovery community will be hosting a screening of Jeff Reilly’s Tipping the Pain Scale on Monday, April 18, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Main Auditorium, located in Concord’s Alexander Fine Arts building.

The feature documentary film focuses on the addiction crisis in America and brave individuals who have joined the urgent fight to save lives in their community. Though addiction is a hardship that every American community experiences, Tipping the Pain Scale takes a different approach to showcase the topic by highlighting current systematic failures and new innovative solutions to the problem.

The film follows the journeys of Secretary of Labor, Marty Walsh; NFL Pro Bowl player, Darren Waller; spoken word artist and educator, Joseph Green; WA State Representative, Lauren Davis; community outreach volunteer, Roz Pichardo; and Boston Police Officer, Josh De La Rosa.

“I am excited to be able to provide a cultural and educational opportunity for our campus community,” said Brandon Whitehouse, Peer Recovery Support Specialist at Concord University.

For more information regarding the Tipping the Pain Scale screening or Concord University’s collegiate recovery community, please contact Brandon Whitehouse at bwhitehouse@concord.edu
