Summary: The experts in this eye-opening program don't have PhDs or high-paid teaching positions, but they know firsthand-and express in vivid language-the overpowering highs and punishing lows of crack cocaine addiction. Exploring the crumbling streets of inner-city Newburgh, NY, the program lets streetwise experience speak for itself, compiling a collection of tragic yet faintly hopeful personal stories, and describing in detail what happened to this once-prosperous community when crack appeared on the scene. The result is a visual textbook, brimming with the cold, hard facts of addiction, that viewers will find hard to forget.
