True Story: Sarah
“I’m Sarah Spier. Following in the footsteps of my mom and grandmother, I began my film career at the young age of 17. I traveled the world and even started an international non-profit in Tanzania. By 22 I was using IV heroin and cocaine, and attempted suicide. My near-death experience led me to treatment. Nine years later, I am not only surviving, I’m thriving and helping others in Spokane.”
The Starts with One campaign is designed to inform and educate young adults, their parents, and older adults about the dangers of prescription drug misuse and the importance of safe storage, use, and disposal. This campaign is funded by the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA).
