It is difficult to understand the insanity that unfolds before your eyes, hard to watch, yet impossible to turn away. For those who doubt this is a disease, and rather view it as moral failing or character weakness, may change their view after watching this.
It was delivered quickly, well packaged and I am very happy with my purchase. I look forward to viewing this with my groups and getting their feedback. Thank You!
Sadly, this year has brought 63 days of inpatient for liver failure, vomiting blood and suppressed bone marrow leading to dangerous levels of platletes. The lack of platelets could lead to massive bleeding. I hate my disease. 93 days sober today.
Gratefully I have the Veteran's Hospitals. They are extremely well equipped to
deal with substance abuse. MY alcoholism has progressed to monthly vivitrol
shots and daily librium because of the siezures. They have a whole substance
abuse department with numerous rehab facilities, social worker and out reach
programs.. The also have a PTSD clinic
I plan to buy second copy and send it to my inpatient doctor and use my current copy at the homeless shelter I work at. I was particularly moved by the compassion the police showed him. Sadly I find tough love the most divisive impediment to recovery.You should be proud of the film you made.
THis film may have saved my life. I never realized that thiamine deficiencies leads to korsakoff.
This movie needs to be seen in rehab's, high schools an living rooms.
Yes indeed. Mark David Allen is very, very important. Thank YOU David J. Sperling for telling him, and the rest of the world, in this beautiful portrait of a noble spirit.
I highly recommend the DVD 'Pleasure Unwoven. An explanation of the brain disease of addiction. It's a clear, concise and very easy to understand explanation of why addiction is a disease. Kevin McCauley, a physician and ex addict, shows us why the Mark David Allen's of this world need our understanding.
