Research shows that one in four Americans has a primary family member who is struggling with addiction. This live-action documentary examines the myths and explains to viewers that addiction is really a brain disease that is caused by a variety of genetic and psychosocial factors. The program discusses the best recovery options available, such as evidence-based medical and behavioral treatments. Topics are explored to show the complexities of addiction and recovery, such as the adolescent addict, the science of relapse, parents of opiate-addicted children, the CRAFT Approach to treatment and brain imaging.
