"I teach addictions as part of my class on Mental Health Nursing. This product was well worth adding to my teaching materials. The bonus updates are great as well."
They left out alcoholism

"Addiction and the horrific influence it has on the lives of addicts and their families is certainly portrayed in this 4 episode release. Its a sampling of the different forms of addiction; the stories in this DVD compilation show a wide range of addiction scenarios, but they don't show much about one of the most common addictions that wreck lives every day, that being straight up, widespread, easy to ignore, alcoholism. This isn't to say that alcoholism is more important or more common or more devastating than addictions to drugs, shopping or gambling.It does show how wide ranging addictive behavior can be. I bought this DVD as a way to introduce some members of my family to the concept of intervention and I feel they would have related to it better had there been an episode on alcoholism. Its good in the sense that it could be a primer for those who are just beginning to consider the concept of an intervention for a loved one, or for some who are finding the courage to seek and understand the raw and painful complexities of addiction. It does offer a measure of hope for healing,but also illustrates the hard work and sacrifice that is required of the addict and of those in relationship with the addict. This was a hard DVD for my loved ones to watch and because it didn't zero in on the issues we are facing as a family, I am not sure I will have another chance. However, the A and E Network does have available most of the individual episodes from all seasons. I feel a person would do better to research those and find one that resonates."
