The Family Recovery Documentary transforms outdated practices, empowering families on their recovery journey with compassionate, inspirational stories and expert insights.

 According the Pew Research Center, nearly half (46%) of Americans have a family member or close friend who have been addicted to drugs or alcohol

A study published in 2022 found that those with strong family support are twice as likely to achieve lasting sobriety two years post-treatment compared to those without such support.

Family recovery empowers families affected by substance use to heal, grow, and contribute to their loved one's lasting recovery. The Family Recovery Documentary's mission is to educate, equip, and empower families affected by substance use.
