Event description

Description

Hudson Health Services in partnership with The University of Maryland Eastern Shore is proud to present a viewing of Written Off, followed by a panel discussion with Director Molly Hermann and Ms. Jane Funk, the mother of Matthew Edwards. Matthew’s grippingly honest personal journals reveal secrets one man worked so hard to conceal as an innocent prescription for painkillers leads to a 10-year struggle to escape opiates and the stigma that surrounds his addiction. His journals are the catalyst for the film “Written Off.”

Matthew’s mother Jane released “What I Couldn’t Tell You: One Man’s Struggle with Opiate Addiction,” which takes you inside Matthew’s journals providing a fascinating look at the culture, shame, isolation, and frustration of addiction. She will be signing copies on site.
