You are invited to a very special film screening of “Swallow THIS: A Documentary About Methadone and COVID-19”.
Thursday, June 1, 2023
5:00pm – 7:00pm PDT (Doors open at 4:30pm)
USC Bovard Auditorium
3551 Trousdale Pkwy.
Los Angeles, CA
(Free parking provided in the McCarthy Structure)
Please join USC Institute for Addiction Science, UCLA’s Center for Behavioral and Addiction Medicine (CBAM), and directors – Marilena Marchetti and Helen Redmond – for this special event!
This 30-minute documentary reveals what happened in methadone clinics during the pandemic. Federal agencies lifted restrictions on take-home doses so every person was eligible for 14 or 28 days of medication. Many patients experienced a liberation they never knew was possible.
There will also be a special Q&A discussion with the directors and expert panelists immediately following the film screening.
Please share this with friends, colleagues, faculty, community partners, and students! All are welcome to attend.
Registration is required.
