This compelling programme, which features a DVD and a CD-ROM, gives professionals an inside look into the disease of addiction, the treatment process, and the hope for lifelong recovery. It includes dramatic narratives of drug abuse and information on symptomatology, pharmacology, neurobiology, treatment, and recovery management.

The 90-minute video features information on the most commonly abused drugs: alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, synthetic marijuana, inhalants, prescription drugs, and more. It demonstrates the progression of drug abuse to recovery management, from residential treatment sites to outpatient treatment options and sober living. What it means to live a life in recovery is also discussed.

The video is divided into four chapters to make it easy for professionals to find the most appropriate information for their clients:

Chapter 1: The Disease of Addiction
Chapter 2: The Effects on the Brain and Body
Chapter 3: Getting Help
Chapter 4: Living Recovery

The CD-ROM contains reproducible client materials, including over 25 articles on the brain, neurobiology, genetics, and other risk factors of addiction from the book Alcoholism: The Science Made Easy.
