81sZ-s9RhaL._SL1500_The important question about addiction is: Is it really a “disease?” Pleasure Unwoven presents the arguments for and against this compelling question. The one-hour documentary, filmed in high-definition and recipient of NAATP’s 2010 Michael Q. Ford Journalism Award, uses the spectacular landscape of Utah’s State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction and turns complex neuroscientific concepts into easy-to-understand visual images. Reviewing all the latest research about addiction along the way, Pleasure Unwoven will help people in recovery understand their own struggle and in turn feel better understood, and encourage their families and friends in believing that recovery is possible.

 Pleasure Unwoven: A Personal Journey about Addiction

Thursday, April 23rd             Club East Cafe

7:00PM              Free Admission

Pleasure Unwoven is the best critical representation of the addiction process I’ve seen to date. For anyone seriously hoping to end destructive addictive behavior involving alcohol or drugs, this is a gotta see, as it is for anyone with someone in their life who struggles with any addiction. This beautifully filmed — but more importantly — excellently written documentary will help viewers understand the complicated neurological and medical components of addiction.             — greg w

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best song writer of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant. And I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better.
