Film documents 'long walk' for effective drug treatment
A free screening of the documentary Half a Million Steps will take place at the Umina Uniting Church from 6:30pm on November 16.
The film documents the Long Walk to Treatment, a trek from Dubbo to Sydney in October 2018 that delivered an open letter to NSW Parliament urging that effective drug treatment be available to all.
The Long Walk to Treatment was a Uniting Church initiative involving a group of 100 people raising awareness of the lack of drug treatment services in regional NSW.
The journey was filmed to create the documentary that shares the personal stories behind a movement to reform drug laws and policy and make treatment available to all.
Screening organiser Ms Carol Wilton said all members of the community were welcome to attend.
