In the spring of 2015, CADY and the Plymouth State University TIGER Program (Theatre Integrating Guidance, Education, and Responsibility) launched an exciting collaboration called, Alex’s Story. Alex’s Story is the real-life account of a NH youth’s struggle with drug use, heroin addiction, and recovery. We understand that no one, especially teens, likes to be lectured to, so we developed an innovative, peer-to-peer educational model utilizing storytelling to raise awareness on the risks of substance misuse and addiction. Alex’s Story is empowering high school students with fact-based information to avoid risky behaviors and make smart, healthy choices. The performance is followed by a powerful question and answer session with Alex.
