Russell Brand from Addiction to Recovery

March 30, 2016

Speed, coke, crack, heroin… Russell Brand took drugs every single day. He got clean at the age of 27, the age Amy Winehouse was when she died. Amy’s death was a paradoxical, unsurprising shock, and Russell felt like he could have done something to help.

He made this film to have a sympathetic look at alcoholism and addiction, a condition that the World Health Organization regards as a disorder. Brand believes that drugs and alcoholism are much misunderstood by users, non-users, and the government. He also thinks that we need to start regarding addiction in all its forms as a health issue as opposed to the judicial and criminal issue. In this film he wants to learn more and see if we can do things differently.
