The documentary below is called "Overtaken" and it is extremely powerful. It was created by a grieving mom named Jodi Barber who lost her son to drugs. She wanted a way to raise awareness about addiction that would get through to kids and parents. She accomplished that with this documentary. It is a MUST watch.

In my years of researching addiction, this is by far the best video that I have ever come across. I still get teary-eyed every time I watch it, and I've watched it many times. The video features normal kids who got caught up in the world of drugs.

This is also the video that we showed to the Grade 9 students in the Peer to Peer Drug Awareness Program at Queen Charlotte and Birchwood.

Please watch this video and then watch it again with your kids. Share it with your friends. You could save lives.


  1. Thank you for posting this! This is something I will definitely be sitting down and sharing with my son Jacob. We keep an open conversation going about drugs and their consequences and this is another great tool to use.

  2. keep writing...thank you
