Cake Night [electronic resource]: Journey Towards Recovery

Planet Pictures (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Set in the Canadian addiction treatment center of Edgewood, this program explores the private world of substance abuse rehabilitation through the eyes of six addicts and their families. Despite varied backgrounds, the goal of these patients is to turn their backs on substance dependence by facing their addiction and to arrive clean and sober to Cake Night, the monthly celebration of recovery. The impact of addiction on the family, the concept of dependency as a disease, and the debate surrounding this popular model of treatment are also explored.
