SEASON OF HOPE is a film about young mothers struggling to recover from the catastrophe of drug addiction. Told through a series of compelling interviews, it shows women helping other women face their addictions and the promise of recovery.
SEASON OF HOPE’s premise is that addicted women are victims of a terrible disease who have a great deal in common with all mothers: they love their children and desperately want to be nurturing parents. By offering a rarely-seen world steeped in myth and media hype, SEASON OF HOPE is an encouraging resource for counseling and guidance groups, health education, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, schools, churches and other community organizations.
“LEAVES A POWERFUL IMPRESSION OF HOPE and a sense of optimism in an otherwise frightening world of families and drug use.”
Diana Roberts – OREGON STATE CHILDREN’S DIVISION
“WITH A MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT, this production shows how recovery is possible”
