Recovery Resources presents We Can Be Heroes- A Social Impact Documentary Film


June 5 @ 7:00 pm

Recovery Resources and Under the Hood Productions are excited to present WE CAN BE HEROES, a powerful documentary film that shines a light on the complexities of addiction and the strength of the human spirit. WE CAN BE HEROES follows Detroit boxer Taylor “Machine Gun” Duerr in the fight of his life – both inside and outside the ring – training for the WBAC Cruiserweight title and battling the demons of drug addiction.

“I’ve already been dead, what are you gonna do to me?” -Taylor Duerr

WE CAN BE HEROES is a social impact film screening that will launch community discussion around the complexities of drug and alcohol addiction – a topic that’s deeply relevant in our mountain resort towns. The film’s mission is to replace stigma with understanding and compassion for those who are battling the daily challenges of addiction. We’ll host a talk-back session with Taylor following the film, giving the audience a chance to ask questions and learn about Taylor’s lived experience as both an athlete and addict. Film-goers will walk away with a better understanding of substance use disorder, how it affects our community, and what can be done to battle this insidious disease.

“Until the stigma of addiction is removed those who need help are less likely to seek it…and those who can help are less able to offer it.”
