A heartfelt thank you to all our interview subjects for generously sharing their stories and journeys. This series of animations is a result of a collaboration between the BC Centre on Substance Use and a peer group with lived and living experiences with Alcohol Use Disorder. We feel privileged to have been part of bringing these powerful stories to life.
These animations were produced, directed, illustrated, animated and edited by Be the Change Group on behalf of the BC Centre on Substance Use.
