Featuring interviews with medical experts, recovering addicts, and family members, this supportive program delves into the complexity of addiction, offering information and help to those dealing with addicts. The program is structured into chapter headings: 'Understanding What Addiction Is'; 'Understanding the Addict'; 'Addiction Affects the Entire Family'; 'Stigma and Shame'; 'Common Difficulties for Families When Dealing with Addiction' (including enabling, fear, grief, and hopelessness); and 'Recovery Is Possible.' Various professionals, including physicians, seen in offices or other settings, advise viewers that addiction is a 'disease of the brain,' an incurable but treatable condition. Interviewed recovering addicts and family discuss their personal experiences and feelings, including shamefulness and despair. Those affected by a loved one's addiction are urged to get counseling and join support groups. The power of prayer and seeking a higher power of one's choosing are also touched upon in this well-produced program, which offers general advice and comfort. Purchase according to demand. - Sue-Ellen Beauregard
