Ensemble acting, Educational, Informative for families and friends

See it if Hope for recovery at end of addiction, detox, rehab, program, meetings, relapse, rehab again, more meetings. Also for codependent family.

Don't see it if You expect to be fully informed about recovery. There is no substitute for committing to a program and sticking with it.
