Generation Found

 
GENERATION FOUND is 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 biggest 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. Watch the trailer here.
In addition to the screening, the event will begin with a performance by Matt Butler who wrote and performs the powerful call-to- action song “Just One” from the documentary’s end title credits. Matt is a rock and Americana singer/songwriter from NYC in the style of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Ryan Adams.
