The United States is suffering a drug and alcohol addiction epidemic. “Recovering Community,” is an in-production documentary film produced by Hope Payson and Tory Estern Jadow of RC Productions, focusing on how this epidemic is affecting the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. While the Northwest Corner may seem, to some, a pocket of great beauty and tranquility, our communities are affected and devastated by addiction problems like the rest of the country. Our film focuses on the specific and heartfelt stories of people with histories of addiction, seen in different stages of recovery. Meet the participants in this short prelude.
