Bray Cary speaks on the reality behind Oxyana

Posted: Updated:

If you haven't seen the trailer for Oxyana, a documentary about how addiction to prescription painkillers has nearly decimated Oceana in Wyoming County, you should.

We can certainly argue whether or not the town gets a fair shake in the film, but what's not up for debate is the way drugs are ripping apart so many communities. 

This is not an easy problem to fix, but maybe the only way to truly battle this monster is to give those who might not see another way out a real, lasting shot at prosperity.

A thriving economy doesn't solve every ill, but we can never underestimate the power of hope.
