Pleasure Unwoven

DVD, 2006, 70 minutes, Grades 10 – Adult

The most important question about addiction is: “Is it really a disease?” In this video essay, Kevin McCauley explores the arguments for and against this debate, reviewing the latest neuroscientific research about addiction along the way. Using the spectacular landscape of Utah’s State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction, complex neuroscientific concepts are turned into easy-to-understand visual images that will help people in recovery feel better understood, and their families and friends feel hope that recovery is possible.
