This is a 24 min. documentary on the misuse of prescription drugs. It is a problem that occurs in every part of society. Although studies have shown that the misuse of prescription drugs is no greater for aboriginal people than for anyone else, in some aboriginal communities the problem has surfaced. In the community of Wagmatook, Nova Scotia , prescription drugs were finding their way to youth on the street. This moving video tells a story of the collaboration between Doctors, Pharmacists, Drug and alcohol counselors, community health nurses and local law enforcement to combat the problem.
