    Has anyone seen this DVD by Kevin McCauley? - "Pleasure Unwoven: An Explanation of the Brain Disease of Addiction"? I saw it once when I went through rehab and thought it was pretty good. I'm wondering what you all think of it. It's a little bit expensive for an addict ($34). I think the people that would benefit the most from watching it would use the money for drugs instead. It's a good aid for rehab though - and a good reminder for those people doing their own recovery at home, of why addiction happens, and how they got in the place that they are.

    @cheffy hey there. i haven't seen it. i just watched the trailer for it and it looks good. from a dr.'s perspective and gives some to the brain science behind addiction. you can stream it for 2 days for $9.95.

    Thanks for sharing. I'll most likely watch it at some point!
