TUNKHANNOCK — The Dietrich Theater will host a free showing of the film “Generation Found” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 10. Sponsored by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Health Care Foundation, Wyoming County C.A.R.E.S and Young People In Recovery -Wyoming County, the event will include free popcorn and soda.
Breaking Ground Poets, a group of Tunkhannock Area High School students directed by teacher Katie Wisnosky, will kick off the evening with a reading, and a panel of experts from the recovery community will be available for discussion at the end of the film.
From the creators of the groundbreaking film, “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. In one of the largest 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 co-exist to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.”

Tickets will also be available at the door while they last.
