Liquid Handcuffs: A Documentary to Free Methadone
Enter the hidden world of methadone clinics. Candid and comical interviews with staff and patients in six countries show how menthadone has saved and improved the lives of countless people with opioid use disorder. At the same time, rigid rules- attending clinic six days a week, limited hours, random urine screens- make their lives difficult. In 2017, 72,000 people died from opioid-related overdose. If methadone were easier to access, how many lives could be saved?
