'Six Gifts' Trailer
This review absolutely blew us away, and we are profoundly grateful to see how impactful this film can be on people!
The Movement Behind The Film
Beyond the film, lies a bigger mission for the team at Sober and Stoked. All the proceeds from the Six Gifts movie will be used to launch the "Sober and Stoked" Non-profit, whose mission is to help equip halfway houses throughout the country with athletic gear, art supplies, instruments, and more, so that those new to recovery can have a chance to rediscover a lost passion, or finally discover their purpose!

The Team Behind the Movie
Scotty and Eugene have been friends for 17 years, and have almost 25 years sober between them! This movie has been a dream come true to give back to others that are currently suffering from addiction, or in the early stages of recovery. They brought on talented photographer Nick Tribuno to tackle the project, and the release of the movie marks an end to a year of travel and editing, and the beginning of the next chapter of Sober and Stoked!
Scott French Co-Founder
Over a decade of doing drugs and drinking everyday had taken a toll on me. I had acquired 4 DUI’s over 10 years, had many drunk in public offenses, and many violation of probations. Many people thought I was life of the party. I worked in bars and many thought it was just part of the lifestyle. After some failed long term relationships the drug use began to be more of a constant. Cocaine slowly turned into meth and crack, and then Oxycontin and heroin. I was in a constant black out, many days I would stay up for days, suffering from sleep deprivation and drug use. I couldn’t dream anymore, and my nightmares, and my life were all the same. I was sick and tired.
Eugene Stiltner Co-Founder
October 13, 2005 was a normal night for me at the time. I had a job interview the next morning, so I decided that the correct way to celebrate that interview was to stay out until last call. I then preceded to drive home on the shoulder of the interstate at one point, and was pulled over and arrested by one of Virginia’s finest. This was the culmination of almost 8 years of reckless, out of control drinking, depression, trouble with the law, and a desire to no longer go on. When I got out the next morning my parents and a family friend who had been sober for many years, sat me down for an intervention.
