As part of Story in the Public Square program, the Pell Center is hosting a documentary screening of American Addict followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Joseph Grady, Pell Center Senior Fellow for Public Policy. From the film’s producers: “American Addict unveils how America has gone from the land of the free to the land of the addicted. America represents 5% of the world’s population but consumes 50% of the world’s prescription pills and over 80% of the world’s prescription narcotics; this is NOT a coincidence. This film reveals the relationships between the FDA, big Pharma, physicians and the media that are in place to ensure that medical problems are treated primarily with pills. The horrific consequences that result from this practice results in overuse, abuse and unnecessary deaths. American Addict is the most important film of 2013 because it could literally save your or a loved one’s life.”
