      It was a great way to engage the women in our program with learning about addiction outside of hearing us talk or doing a traditional Power Point. It sparked great conversation.

        Comments about this product:

        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.

          I use it to show my students the harmful effects of drugs. It gives real life situations to an audience that sometimes believes life is just one big party.
