Video: The Life You Want: A Young Woman's Struggle Through Addiction

This video documents the struggles with addiction to Oxycontin on a small Northern Ontario reservation. This small town has 1,200 residents and the community is falling apart due to addiction. There is a long wait time for treatment and many of the options available for most Canadians are none existent in this area. It is my belief that the community's remote location and the fact that the community is comprised of Native Canadians that this crises is not being discussed on a national level.  I know that this video is a touch long but it really must been seen.
