The feature length documentary film ADDICTION brings together the nation's leading experts on drug and alcohol addiction with a collection of award-winning filmmakers to shed light on addiction, its causes and the latest and most prominent developments in treatments. Its focus is on case studies and new medical treatments. A supplementary series of 13 short films delves deeper into the various dimensions of addiction.
Excellent, interesting, informative and supportive. This documentary covers the science of addiction, medical interventions and treatments. It is broken into sections so it can be viewed in 30 minute chunks if desired. A viewer can watch the areas of most interest or need without difficulty. I work in the mental health field and found this DVD to be spot on in regards to the difficulties users, their families and professionals face as well as the possibility of recovery and what is required to achieve remission. I watched parts of this documentary with my teenagers and have offered it to friends. If I knew nothing about addiction and needed one source to become informed this would be it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
