Generation Found

Focused on alternative methods to teen drug addiction and recovery in Houston, Generation Found offers a roadmap for communities looking to engage with these issues beyond the simplicity and brutality of the “War on Drugs.” The city, which faced a massive epidemic of youth addiction to drugs and alcohol, banded together to create a peer-driven recovery community through the tireless work of counselors, teachers, parents, church leaders, and other members of the local community. Archway Academy—a sober high school—is a critical focus of the film, and we follow several students in recovery who long to live a live free from addiction, with achievable goals and dreams like any other young person growing up in the US.
