Storyline

Camp Recovery, located in the coastal town of Santa Cruz, Cal., features a mix of new and long-term addicts, most of whom stay for 30 days (the maximum allowed by most insurance companies). REHAB chronicles their experiences in the center and follows them out into the less-supervised, far more dangerous, "real" world, riding the emotional tidal waves that accompany incremental progress and devastating relapses. The film offers a rare insider's look at the ups and downs of each addict's journey to stay clean. Written by alserve@yahoo.com

Interesting documentary
5 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie's central theme seems to be that very few addicts who go through rehab will be magically cured at the end of the month. Five young people trying to kick serious drug habits are followed before, during, and after their stays at a California center. Counselors include former addicts (or recovering addicts, as some would say once an addict always an addict), including one counselor who, at least on camera, seemed to preface every sentence with "I used to use drugs, too". The film did a nice job of showing the family issues involved, whether cause or effect, without seeming preachy. One thing I found lacking was coverage of alcohol, as it seemed to always be on the periphery with the focus being on heroin injection. I also found the song during the closing credits to be hauntingly beautiful.
