The Dufferin/Caledon Drug Strategy hired AOS to produce a video series to promote and inform the public for Overdose Awareness Month. Their focus group said that hearing stories from real people rather than social workers or doctors would be most beneficial.

Each video features one client telling their personal story of their journey with addiction and the stigma associated with drug addiction. Some chose to stay anonymous and were filmed as silhouettes while others were more open. Throughout this production sensitivity was the main priority.

The questions for the interviews were carefully written, the camera work and the editing process was respectful of the individuals, and told their story in a way that made them proud.
