GATEWAY presents the story of three families inadvertently impacted by opioid addiction that began with a
prescription to manage pain after surgery. The documentary is presented by Choices Matter – a national movement
designed to educate and empower patients to have proactive discussions with their clinicians about available
non-opioid options for managing pain after surgery.
The deeply-moving, 40-minute film is thoughtfully told through the eyes and hearts of everyday American families who were introduced to opioids after surgery and go on to battle with addiction – either personally or as a caregiver to
a loved one. The result is a humanizing and eye-opening look into the struggles that can be caused by legal opioid
prescriptions when the dangers of these medications are not properly understood.
