Blending compelling personal narratives with statistics and expert opinion, all gleaned from over two years of research and reporting, Addiction offers a comprehensive and provocative look at the impact of chemical dependency on addicts, their loved ones, society, and the economy.

Breaking the stigma that addicts are simply weak and immoral, it delves into new brain research proving that drugs and alcohol change the chemical composition of addicts brains, making it veritably impossible for them to quit. The nations top experts persuasively argue that the time has come for the blame to stop and the healing to begin.Addiction also features material not included in the documentary: testimonials, original graphics and images, additional elaboration on theories and treatments of addiction, and more.

Featuring a foreword by Sheila Nevins, the president of Documentary and Family Programming at HBO, an afterward by the best-selling author Susan Cheever, and the writing of David Sheff, this book is essential reading for anyone who has been impacted by what is now realized to be a very real and widespread disease.
