HBO, in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), National Institute on Drug Addiction (NIDA), and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), produced a multi-platform campaign to educate the public about advancements in the understanding of drug and alcohol addiction and its treatment as a brain disease. The centerpiece was a 90-minute documentary which aired on HBO in March 2007.
A companion book blends compelling personal narratives with statistics and expert opinions, looking at the impact of chemical addiction on addicts, their loved ones, society, and the economy. A DVD set features new material not included in the documentary, such as testimonials, original graphics and images, additional elaboration on theories and treatments of addiction, and more.
