Naperville Heroin, Drug Use Highlighted in 'Neuqua on Drugs' Trailer

Newly released YouTube trailer for student-filmed documentary gives glimpse of the uncut story of Naperville's youth drug culture.

It's emotional, it's uncut and it's the raw reality of Naperville's youth drug culture.

It's "Neuqua on Drugs."

After reaching their online fundraising goal to put the "Neuqua on Drugs" documentary onto DVD last month, two student filmmakers have provided a glimpse of Naperville's heroin reality in a new trailer for the film.

In May, producers Kelly McCutcheon and Jack Kapson premiered their first documentary, “Neuqua on Drugs” at the 95th Street Library. Since then, they not only raised awareness about the issue, but also launched and successfully funded a Kickstarter project in order to put the documentary onto DVD. 

With $6,677 raised, the DVD will soon be available for purchase on the documentary's web site.

Well said MC1171 I shared this with my son who is a freshman at Neuqua this year, and every day I feel I need to say something about staying away from drugs. You said it so well, I'm sure it will have an impact on his life!! Keep fighting the fight!

"This doesn't happen anywhere else." Really? Hmmm.
