Addiction: A Comprehensive View
©2006

Made up of several concise segments, this program deals with a wide range of drugs, addiction issues, and case studies. Viewers will enter a chaotic Dallas ER, where the majority of injuries are drug- and alcohol-related, and meet a desperate middle-aged woman who finally turns in her heroin-addicted daughter to police. Other segments focus on opiate addiction, drug abuse in adolescence, the reasons for relapse, the science of brain imaging, a potential treatment for alcoholism called topiramate, the disturbing lack of insurance coverage for drug and alcohol addiction, and other topics. Contains mature themes, occasional explicit language, and some graphic footage of injuries. An HBO Production. (87 minutes)
