Movie Reviews

Must have DVD for families and those struggling with addicti
Terry Tee | CA | 08/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We first watched this video as part of a family therapy weekend while our daughter was in rehab. It was a very good explanation of the disease-theory of chemical dependence, as as a medical professional myself, I found it explained the processes in the brain involved in addiction in a clear and concise way. All of the family members present felt the movie was outstanding. Made by an MD who himself struggled with chemical dependency, and who has a rehabilitation center now in the Colorado area."
