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 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
