Titled Hey Charlie, this heart-wrenching video from the Christopher D. Smithers Foundation follows a lad named Charlie as he grows up. We see a healthy, normal, promising life turned upside down by opioid addiction.

Robert Smyth of Heavy Pictures and Brinkley Smithers directed this docu-style piece.

The Smithers Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1952 by R. Brinkley Smithers in memory of his late father. Originally, the purpose of the Foundation was to carry on the charitable activities pursued by Mr. Christopher D. Smithers during his lifetime. However, after attending the Yale School of Alcohol Studies in 1956, R. Brinkley Smithers decided that the family charitable foundation should concentrate on alcohol use disorder and addiction, and on educating the public that addiction is a medical illness.
