A deep and dark look at what addiction can do to the addict, but more importantly, what it can do to the family. Took a lot of courage to film this. I was riveted.

RIck Kirkham had it all. He traveled 3 Million miles covering the most exciting stories, had a beautiful wife and two children waiting at home for him in Plano, Texas and everything looked like the bright side of the American Dream. Everything was not as it seemed and Rick's own camera captured it all. There is no denying the film's brutal power. It's an addictive self-examination of a man ruled by his obsessions that challenges audiences to look away, knowing it's it is near impossible to resist the harrowing professional and personal meltdown on screen.

Given the recent rash of celebrity deaths recently to drugs, it should be must viewing for anyone with a family or children who idolize these figures. As the Producer/Director of the piece, we hope it not only entertains you but that it enlightens you. Please let us know what you think.

The educational version FACES OF ADDICTION created in conjunction with the New York TImes Anti-drug curriculum will be released for schools, churches and rehab centers in September 2013.
