The Last Fix: An Addict's Passage from Hell to Hope
Monday, June 24, 2019 at 7pm Hampton Library, Bridgehampton (42mins)
A Film by Jacqui Lofaro and Victor Teich.
Q&A with Judge Deborah Kooperstein of the Drug Court.
A compelling journey with convicted drug offenders who opt for a tough and pioneering drug court on the East End of Long Island rather than prison. Three stories tell of drug-ravaged addicts thrown a lifeline out of crime and jail into treatment and recovery. The film reveals an intimate look into wrecked lives and the staggering costs that lead to crimes of prostitution, robbery, and theft to pay street dealers.
The Last Fix is a passage from hell to hope, the struggle to stay clean in drug court and the joyous victory celebrations at graduation.
The Last Fix shines a spotlight on alternative sentencing, a seismic shift in the criminal justice system that embraces treatment over punishment.
