This feature film follows six mothers with addictions on the verge of losing custody of their children. They enter an innovative substance abuse treatment program hoping to turn their lives around. Interwoven with their stories, the film takes an unflinching look at drug laws aimed at pregnant and parenting women with addictions, and the legacy of imprisonment and foster care on children.
This important film will catalyze a much-needed dialogue on treatment vs. criminalization, inspire people with substance abuse issues to begin the recovery process, challenge the stigma against mothers who use illicit drugs, and shed light on the issues for their family and friends, social service providers, law enforcement, policy makers and the general public. Moms Living Clean will make a difference.
If you are unable to attend the screening and would like to support completion of Moms Living Clean you can make a tax-deductible donation in any amount right now through the film’s non-profit fiscal sponsor San Francisco Film Society Thank you.
I look forward to seeing you there!
Sheila Ganz, Director
