#5238. A year from now, two of you will be dead. So begins an orientation session at Camp Recovery, a Santa Cruz drug and alcohol treatment center. This documentary follows five young addicts through the camp’s 30-day rehab program and tracks their progress, or lack thereof, in the months that follow.
Featuring remarkably candid interviews with the participants, riveting one-on-one and family counseling sessions, and heartbreaking portrayals of post-camp life – which means relapses, more detox, and even jail time for some – the video clearly illustrates the challenges a recovering addict faces in order to avoid becoming the worst kind of statistic.
