“You have to learn to live with pain and set-backs sober.” That’s the tough lesson taught in Netflix’s Recovery Boys, a new film charting the painful path to rehabilitation.
In the heart of America’s opioid epidemic, the movie follows four men attempting to reinvent their lives and mend broken relationships after years of drug abuse. From Academy Award nominated director Elaine McMillion Sheldon (Heroin(e)), the film is an intimate look at the strength, brotherhood, and courage that it takes to overcome addiction and lays bare the internal conflict of recovery. In an effort to break the cycle of generational addiction and trauma, the young men let go of painful pasts as they live in the present, and build a new community in a farming-based rehab.
After rehab, they experience life’s trials and tribulations sober, but struggle to find their place and purpose in an often unforgiving society. In today’s world, where shocking statistics about the opioid crisis make headlines daily, Recovery Boys gives a deeply personal look into the unseen lives of those working toward transformation.
Recovery Boys premieres on Netflix on Friday 29th June. Here’s a trailer – or, for more on what’s coming soon to Netlfix UK in June 2018, click here.
Recovery Boys is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
