Film Screening: The Business of Recovery
Spalding University is proud to host a free screening of a new documentary film: The Business of Recovery. The screening, presented in the Egan Leadership Center's Lectorium, is open to the Spalding community and public and will take place on Spalding's campus on the 18th of February from 6:30pm-8:30pm. Following the film screening, a panel of Spalding faculty will provide a moderated discussion of the film and its implications on the treatment of substance abuse.
As drug and alcohol addictions skyrocket, The Business of Recovery examines the untold billions that are being made off of families in crisis. With little regulation or science, the treatment industry has become a cash cow business that continues to grow while deaths pile up. Through unique access to internationally recognized treatment facilities, as well as emotional stories of addicts and their families, the fi lm reveals how the treatment industry in the United States preys on addicts with little more than promises of hope and the assurance of astronomically high treatment costs. The film challenges us to reconsider our assumptions about treating addiction and the human cost we will pay by allowing the industry to continue business as usual.
