"Reach for Me" calls attention to the opioid overdose epidemic in the United States. Of particular interest is the situation surrounding the overdose antidote called naloxone, a pure opioid antagonist long-used for reversing the effects of opioid overdose. "Reach for Me" explores the interconnected issues of naloxone pricing and production shortages, public funding support (or more often lack thereof), and other factors affecting access to overdose prevention tools. It features interviews with leading experts and advocates from around the country, including California, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington, DC, and Wisconsin.
Individual interviews from the nearly 30 people who participated in the interviews during the filming of "Reach For Me."
