Addiction can happen to anyone. It is an equal opportunity disease, crossing boundaries of race, creed, and class, destroying individuals, families, and communities. Most Americans have been touched by addiction, including renowned journalist Bill Moyers, whose oldest son struggled with drugs and alcohol.
In this acclaimed five-part series, Moyers looks at substance abuse from all sides: personal, professional, scientific, and political. First, we hear from the real experts: recovering addicts. Then, Moyers talks with scientists who study how drugs change the brain, treatment professionals who help recovering addicts lead healthy lives, and kids in danger of becoming the next generation of addicts. Finally, he reports on the ongoing fight to change our national drug policy. Far-ranging, frank, and compassionate, On Addiction: Close to Home is an in-depth exploration of the heartbreak of addiction and the hope and possibility of recovery.
