          On November 4, 2013, Melissa lost her 19-year-old daughter, Kali, to a heroin overdose. Kali was raised in a middle-class family in Syracuse, N.Y. She was a painter, and on the honor roll in high school. Kali is not an anomaly. Heroin is infiltrating the homes of suburban families all across Central New York. Methadone clinics have year long waiting lists, and overdoses have skyrocketed. The Sickness, a feature film by Chris Janjic and Andrew Renneisen, tells the stories of those most affected by the heroin epidemic. The film gives voice to the user who sees no way out, to the parents who have given everything to help their son, and to the mother whose daughter was robbed of her life. Filmed and Edited by: Chris Janjic - www.chrisjanjic.com Andrew Renneisen - www.andrewrenneisen.com Music by: Moby - www.moby.com Made Possible by: ACR Health - www.aidscommunityresources.com Special Thanks: Marcus Jackson, Wes Alfred, April and Dan Alfred, Melissa Hosier

          • Reach for Me - Short Version

            "Reach for Me" is a short film about the American opioid overdose epidemic and the crisis in access to the overdose antidote naloxone. Naloxone is a safe, easy to use antidote that has reduced overdose deaths by as much as 50% in communities where it has been made available. With this film we hope to raise awareness of the U.S. opioid overdose epidemic, mobilize a nationwide social action to demand universal access to naloxone and other resources to stop overdose deaths, and to encourage community efforts to build support for overdose education and naloxone access. This film was made with the generous support of The Open Society Foundations (OSF).
