About the Project

Colorado legislators have accepted the 6-9 people per day dying from fentanyl. WE HAVE NOT. This is equivalent to filling a large school bus, every single week.

Fentanyl is killing an entire generation and seemingly nothing is being done. We decided we would!

Steve Wells and Mountain Time Media teamed up to make this documentary and hopefully bring light on the issue. Enough is enough!

DEVASTATED: Colorado’s Fentanyl Disaster will premiere May 15 – 18, 2024​

Gripping Documentary on Fentanyl Disaster Set to Premiere Across Colorado

“DEVASTATED: Colorado’s Fentanyl Disaster” exposes the harsh realities of fentanyl in Colorado

Denver, Colo. — In the midst of an escalating opioid crisis gripping Colorado, a powerful new documentary — “DEVASTATED: Colorado’s Fentanyl Disaster” — is set to premiere May 15 – 18 at four Cinemark theaters across the Front Range.

“If we can get someone — anyone — to discuss the fentanyl epidemic with others after seeing this film, we’ve accomplished our goal,” said Steffan Tubbs, director of the film and President/CEO & Founder of Mountain Time Media.

Tubbs continued: “DEVASTATED is the most important film project we’ve ever completed. The courage shown by these Colorado families is immeasurable – they step forward and share their fentanyl heartbreak in hopes they can spare another family from going through the same.”

DEVASTATED delves deep into the harsh reality that is the fentanyl epidemic. Drug overdose claimed over 112,000 lives in 2023 — 70% of which involved fentanyl. This film tells the stories of law enforcement officers, recovering addicts, former drug dealers, parents who lost children, and many more. Tragic in every way, fentanyl’s impact has touched every corner of the Centennial state.

The official trailer for “DEVASTATED” is available on the website here:

A downloadable version of the trailer is available to the media upon request.

While the film focuses on Colorado, every state across America is devastated by the same crisis today. With candid accounts and raw footage, “DEVASTATED” exposes the realities of addiction, overdose, and the broader societal implications of the fentanyl epidemic. From the streets of Denver to the rural landscapes of Colorado, viewers are taken on a journey that confronts what the Drug Enforcement Administration calls, “the deadliest drug threat our country has ever faced.”

DEVASTATED is funded by Weld County rancher Steve Wells.

“I funded the film because someone had to do something. I believe we can fix this, but it’s going to take a lot of resolve and courage to stand up and do the right thing,” Wells said. “But everyone — from parents to kids, teachers to politicians — have to get educated about just how deadly this drug is. It’s like swallowing a hand grenade in a tiny pill form.”

“I want to thank Steve Wells for his commitment to making sure Colorado knows about the scourge of fentanyl and its destructive, devastating effects,” Tubbs said. “As one person says in the film: ‘This is not a red or blue issue. This is a red, white and blue issue.'”
