Prism awards video available to treatment centers

The Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) has released a special edition of its sixth annual PRISM Awards video to alcohol and substance abuse treatment centers. The annual PRISM Awards, produced in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), recognize the accurate depiction of alcohol, drug and tobacco use and addiction in film, television, music and comic books.

The video features wraparound footage, filmed at the actual taping of the PRISM Awards, in which Hollywood celebrities speak directly to those in treatment. It is packaged with discussion questions pertaining to PRISM-nominated productions and includes acceptance speeches from the awards show.
