In 2016 more Americans died from overdoses than in the entire Vietnam War conflict, and yet those new casualties are rarely considered victims of disease. With the support of Rep. Ann Kuster, (D-NH), Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, the documentary film Written Off challenges conventional thinking about addiction.
