Almost everyone has directly or indirectly experienced how chemical dependency can affect a loved one. SEED was formed to add the voice of students to help explain this insidious brain disease. SEED’s main objective is to amplify community messaging about use of chemical substances by explaining the science underlying the disease model. In so doing, it is our hope that fewer people will start using drugs & alcohol and more will seek recovery. Brought to you by Students Empowered to End Dependency (S.E.E.D.) in collaboration with the Scarborough Police Department.

The Creators

SEED (Students Empowered to End Dependency) is an effort by students and adults in five school systems to develop methods to elevate messaging about chemical dependency. The five school systems participating in this project are Bath, Gorham, Scarborough, Windham and Yarmouth. The documentary series, Voices of Hope… The Rugged Road to Recovery, is the organization’s first project.
