YPR partners with feature
documentary film, Tipping The Pain Scale
Tipping The Pain Scale is a feature documentary film following individuals grappling with the current systemic failures of how we have dealt with addiction in communities and their journey to develop and employ new, innovative, and often controversial solutions to the problem. It is a quasi anthology, weaving characters through their own stories as they connect to the issues plaguing all communities and the country in an urgent fight to save lives.
Heroes & Legends, a new album featuring Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, Bill Champlin of the band Chicago, Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers, and original songs from Richard Page of Mr. Mister, will donate its first year’s proceeds to Young People in Recovery!
