Partnership for Drug-Free Kids launched two campaigns along with a TV spot, directed by Mark Pellington, that examine the impact of opioid addiction on families, while offering hope to parents and loved ones. Both campaigns, created pro-bono by New York-based independent agency, Terri & Sandy, break this week and feature a :30 and a :15 television spot, along with multiple print and out-of-home executions.
