Story

Join us in helping others!

As we kickoff 2021, there is hope on the horizon.

But these are still difficult times and whether we struggle with substances or not, we're all feeling disconnected and isolated.

Nevertheless, we're in this together. Always.

That's why Of Substance is constantly working to make us all feel more connected, less alone, and more hopeful one film at a time!

With your contributions...

In 2021, we will be bringing our films to communities through free virtual screening workshops that connect people from the comfort of their homes while making a deep positive impact on how they feel about themselves, others in their lives, and what they're capable of.

With a large and constantly expanding network, Of Substance will be facilitating our workshops for a variety of audiences, including:
Universities - Greek Organizations
High Schools - Veterans Groups
Treatment Facilities - Community Centers
Addiction Communities - Worship Communities
and more!

With your support :

  • we'll be able to create new films by the end of the year!
  • we will develop immersive curriculums and programs, centered around our films, to enhance treatment, education, and more!


About Of Substance.

Of Substance is an innovative nonprofit that creates premium, entertaining short films to offer healing, support, and understanding to all those touched by substance misuse. We’re turning immersive cinema into an approachable tool for personal transformation and behavioral change.

Of Substance is built on the notion that addiction is a disease of loneliness and isolation and the belief that if you can improve someone’s sense of belonging you can improve their mindset.

Our films invite all audiences to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes momentarily allowing them to gain new perspectives and develop empathy toward themselves and others. They’re triggers of vulnerability, which leads to connection and fosters behavioral transformation.

All our films are always available as a free resource to anyone who wants or needs them, anytime.
