This documentary developed by Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing (PROP) tells the story of two chronic pain patients who were treated with OxyContin. They served as model patients in videos produced by Purdue Pharma, the company that makes OxyContin. At first, OxyContin worked well for them. But eventually they were seriously harmed by the medication. This documentary serves as a wake-up call for both patients and physicians who are encouraged to find alternative solutions whenever possible for managing chronic pain rather than opioid treatment to avoid the possibility of downstream dependence, addiction and overdose death. The target audience is adults.
