23.5 Million Americans live in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: However good the intentions, this sluggish documentary about the stigma of substance abuse and the barriers to recovery never comes close to catching fire. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Mar 14, 2014

Rotten: Feels less like dynamic, insightful filmmaking and more like a well-intentioned PSA. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, May 2, 2014

Hope for NH

Just what we needed! A purposeful direction:) A MUST SEE for everyone in addiction recovery! Definite respect of AA is represented!

Thought Provoking and well made.

This movie made me think long and hard about how I went from hiding my addiction to now hiding my recovery. I love movies that make me think long after the credits role. This movie is one of those. I also loved the cinematography of this movie. Thank you!


I had the pleasure of watching this documentary and meeting Greg Williams. This film is an important, powerful, and extremely useful in opening the conversations and better understanding Recovery. It is important for people to realize that we all are recovering from something, and we know people who are. This documentary enhances the education and understanding of this often avoided topic.
