New Documentary Reveals What Teens Really Need To Grow Up Healthy and Safe

Ever wonder why some teens stay drug and alcohol free? “The Silent Majority” gives some surprising answers to what teens really want to help them make good choices about drugs and alcohol. At no time in history have young people faced more challenges to their health and wellbeing, yet the majority of teens are making good choices. The Silent Majority highlights teens and college students impacted by four unique programs that empower them do the right thing and change their lives forever. Drug Free Youth, shows how one city built a community center and a program to inspire their young people with rewards for being drug and alcohol free that benefit the whole community. Teen Court and Camp X-RYD show a diversion program for first offenders in which teens learn from each other, and inmates in jail, what happens when they break the law. The Watch Your BAC program in two Tampa universities tackles binge drinking as students learn how to monitor their Blood Alcohol Concentration, what really happens in a DUI stop, and how reflexes are impacted by alcohol. At Road Recovery in New York, teens in recovery play in a band mentored by rock stars, and learn that musical expression and team work can make all the difference in helping them stay clean.

“The Silent Majority” was first screened at the Joint Meeting of Adolescent Treatment Effectiveness in Washington, D. C. on April 10,2012. It had its World Premiere at the Gasparilla International Film Festival. March 24, 2013 where it was selected as the closing night Feature Film. WEDU PBS Broadcasts scheduled for National Recovery Month and National Prevention Month 2013.

Praise For “The Silent Majority”

“All teenagers, their parents and teachers need to wake up and watch The Silent Majority. Judges, Prosecutors, Public Defenders, Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, Medical Examiners have been ahead of the teen addiction story on so many tragic levels for years. With this documentary, the public can finally see solution.” FELIXVEGA prosecutor, Legal Analyst

“The Silent Majority is a film for all communities to experience. Having it as GIFF’s Closing Night film was our way of showcasing its importance to our city and attendees of the festival. Joseph Restaino President Gasparilla Film Festival.

Praise for the Filmmakers

“Working with Leslie and Lindsey on Silent Majority was a joy. They were as excited to hear and film our story as we were to tell it. The coming together of a community to support, encourage and reward its youth for committing to be drug, alcohol and tobacco free is very powerful. It says that we care and they matter.” Monica Becket D-FY North Port

“[The Silent Majority] is superb…! I know it will win awards. I do love your work, and this film is really top notch. Thank you for doing such good things for our field.” Mary Lynn Ulrey, President and CEO DACCO

“We are so amazed by the quality and content of ‘Silent Majority’…it effectively presented Road Recovery in a very comprehensive manner. With genuine care and sensitivity for the teens we service, [the Glasses earned] the trust of our organization that has never allowed such access with cameras rolling. We watched the documentary with pure amazement and gratitude!” -Gene Bowen & Jack Bookbinder, Co-founders Road Recovery

“Powerful and motivating…the [Silent Majority] is an important step in educating people to the wonderful, creative programs that exist and encourages people to “think outside the box” to provide young people a way to become engaged.” Katie Self, Executive Director Teen Court of Sarasota

From the Producers

When we saw the statistics, 9 teens perish every day in the state of Florida, and met devastated families across the nation reeling from the loss of their children to addiction, we knew we had to do something. Research shows that anti-drug campaigns and school programs that focus on the dangers of drug usehave not worked, and may even trigger experimentation. For parents and the nation, the facts are terrifying. 30% of teens regularly use marijuana, alcohol, and pills. 15% are addicted in high school. That means 150 out of every 1000 high school students are at risk for death before their 20th birthday. And the numbers rise when students enter college. 37,000 teens perish every year from prescription pill overdoses alone. Kids and parents need education and programs for the pre-teen and teen years.

Despite the frightening numbers, there is good news. 70% of teens do make good choices. In “The Silent Majority” we featured the kids no one ever hears about to show how a positive approach becomes the catalyst for real solution. We made “The Silent Majority” to show how empowerment gives teens the support and encouragement they need to grow up healthy and safe.

Rockin’ Recovery A Celebration Of Gratitude

Richie Supa – Paid Artist

Where are we without a community?  A community is what helps shape who we are and gives us values and helps strengthen our beliefs.  Merriam-Webster defines “Community” as: an interacting population of various kinds of individuals (as species) in a common location.

Rockers In Recovery (RIR) is a community of dedicated people who live drug-free with a shared common goal of shedding hope and enlightenment across the country – even world wide.  RIR is an incorporated, non-profit organization with the sole mission to provide support and funding for musicians and anyone else who suffers with any addiction.  The goal is to educate and support people about addiction, as well as the forms of addiction treatment. 

Liberty Devitto and the Slim KingsRIR encourages interaction and mutual support with its donors and sponsors to achieve meaningful and effective communication.  RIR strives for consistent mutual support with their sponsors and supporters.  Communication between the RIR organization and their sponsors and supporters is held high in regard. 

The essence of RIR is to be a pro-active, positive, drug-free community reaching thousands of people nation-wide.  The mission of RIR is to be drug-free organization where people can have fun without using drugs and alcohol.  RIR may be drug-free, but it is not affiliated with any 12-step groups like AA or NA.   

Just in the past few months, RIR has teamed up on a community level to help a part of NYC that was devastated from Hurricane Sandy.  In addition to a benefit concert, RIR did another community event at a local Connecticut school to benefit a street-level non-profit business.  The last venue RIR put together was a benefit for the Special Olympics of South Florida and the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County in March 2013. 

Recovery is not only about helping yourself; it is about who you can help as well.  When Hurricane Sandy struck NYC, people didn’t only just help themselves, but also recovery efforts came far and wide from many people – that is the soul of recovery, to help other people and pay it forward. 

Recovery is having the power to get your life back by letting go to the aspects of life to a higher power.  By relinquishing control to the things we cannot change, we realize there is more fulfillment and empowerment when we ask for help and return it by helping others in ways we can. 

Music News Concert,Art,and Movie FestivalRIR holds a series of events and concerts each year known as the “Rockers In Recovery Live Concert Series,” which combines the RIR All-Star Band with other top notch musicians who are also on the path of recovery as well.  Not only is there a common thread of recovery shared among the musicians, but also the commonality of having a good time sharing and singing songs through the night in a drug and alcohol-free zone. 

RIR also invites other musicians who are either in recovery or support recovery to help spread the message of hope through music.  The most important message that RIR conveys is that having fun is completely doable and possible when you combine treatment and education, because all you need is 100% mutual support of each other.  Support is not a one-way street.

If you want proof that people can have fun without alcohol and drugs, watch the incredible RIR RockStar Super Star Band, and guests, in action at the next concert because their energy redefines the words enthusiastic and lively. 

The paid members of the RIR All-Star Band included, Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts), Liberty DeVitto (Billy Joel), Richie Supa (Aerosmith),  Kasim Sulton (Blue Oyster Cult and Todd Rundgren), Christine Ohlman (Saturday Night Live Band), and Mark Stein (Vanilla Fudge).
