Stop the Shame - CancerEmbed With Credits



A shocking advertising campaign for the non-profit First Call begs the question, “Is addiction a disease?” by examining what would happen if the families of cancer and Parkinson’s patients treated them the same way many respond to those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Created by VML and Sundance Award-winning director Chusy, the spots bring to life to key findings published in “Facing Addiction, The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health,” released last November by the U.S. Surgeon General’s office. Each spot concludes by directing viewers to, where they can learn more about the medical realities of substance use disorder and connect with resources to help those seeking treatment.
