Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Everclear frontman Art Alexakis and skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi are among the famous faces talking about how drug addiction has affected them in a campaign for The Partnership at Drugfree.org, entitled You Are Not Alone. Shot by award-winning director Lori Hoeft, the testimonials are meant to offer a message of hope for the families of teens and young adults caught in the grips of drug addiction, and to remove the stigma and misunderstanding that often prevents people from seeking help. "Each individual we shot had a unique point of view to share from their own experiences," says Hoeft. While Hosoi, Alexakis and Blair Witch Project star Josh Leonard speak about their personal addictions and how they've now remained sober for decades, Eden talks about losing her son to a heroin overdose in 2011. According to Drugfree.org, 90% of addictions begin in the teenage years, and there are 11 million teens and young adults in the US who currently need addiction treatment.
