Description

"Making the Difference: Small Town Anywhere" is a short documentary that features a number of professionals in rural Camsack, Saskatechewan, discussing their need for service providers and accessible resources to combat the worsening opioid crisis. Specifically, a doctor and several nurses are interviewed, describing Camsack's need for harm-reduction treatments, detox centres, and after-care services for rehabilitation patients. Additionally, a student services teacher speaks about her experience seeing many kids succumb to trauma and addiction. In order for early intervention, she exclaims that mental health nurses and psychiatric nurses are needed in schools on a semi-regular basis.

"Delaney – Registered Nurse – Small Town Anywhere" briefly features a nurse, emphasising that anyone can fall susceptible to addiction and that more resources are needed to provide better outcomes for clients. Presumably, this was a scene that was cut from the original "Making the Difference: Small Town Anywhere" documentary.
