Addiction Documentary – Breaking the Chains

“Breaking the Chains” – a story of recovery

Breaking the Chains is a gritty look at real men participating in a group session in a Canadian treatment facility during the 80’s. We see the classic archetypes one would expect of “addicts” but what is compelling about this video is the frankness and honesty displayed by these men and boys. Their level of emotional communication is surprising as is their candor about themselves and their hopes and dreams. This film is about hope and solution to the plague of addiction, it’s a feel good piece that will strike a chord with all who have ever known, loved, treated or been an addict.
