Generation Found


Drug addiction is an intense problem of epidemic proportions in our community.  Parents are burying  their children. Others live with the real fear of being notified their son or daughter overdosed. Many parents have a false sense of security and are totally unaware of the danger facing their children. 
Heroin is everywhere and it's cheap. Many users become addicted after using only a few times. Death from overdose is common. 
We can continue to ignore this elephant in the room, or we can accept an opportunity to be enlightened, and hopefully led to join a revolution to save our children. 
Not one parent anticipates they will  have a child addicted and the impact will be so profound on so many. Not one family is immune. By the time families realize this, it can be too late.


Film synopsis: From the creators of The Anonymous People comes GENERATION FOUND, a powerful story about one community coming together to ignite a youth addiction recovery revolution in their hometown. Devastated
by an epidemic of addiction, Houston faced the reality of burying and locking up its young people at an alarming rate. And so in one of the biggest cities in America, visionary counselors, law school dropouts, aspiring rock
musicians, retired football players, oil industry executives, and church leaders came together to build the world’s largest peer-driven youth and family recovery community.
Independently filmed over the course of two years, GENERATION FOUND takes an unprecedented and intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery
programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.” It is not only a deeply personal story, but one with real-world utility for communities struggling with addiction worldwide.
