"END OF THE LINE came to our high school and really opened the conversation about drug abuse with the students. At the end of the performance one of the actors asked everyone in the audience that was close to someone who had an addiction to raise their hands.
It was powerful to see almost every hand raised. It showed how much we all have in common when it comes to this important issue." --- guidance counselor

"The purpose of the presentation was to highlight that substance misuse is not something that effects just one person, but many families, friends and others."
Reaction to the program? "[The Principal] thinks it was one of the most successful programs he has seen to help generate conversation and connecting the students with services. He got a good number of calls from parents whose students came home and discussed it with them as well. This is such a huge step to breaking down the walls of silence so people can access help."
