Addiction: The Supplementary Series. Over 5 hours of additional material.

Several of the nation's leading experts on drug and alcohol addiction, together with a group of accomplished filmmakers, have assembled to create Addiction, an unprecedented documentary aimed at helping Americans understand addiction as a treatable brain disease. It is a subject that touches all our lives. One in four Americans has a family member who is struggling with addiction. Currently, addiction affects over 22 million Americans, yet under 10 percent of those individuals are receiving treatment. The documentary addresses different aspects of the disease in order to shed light on the most current, promising developments in the field. Through personal stories from addicts and the loved ones who struggle to help them find treatment, common misconceptions are replaced by insight into addiction's complexity.
