Thurs Jan 21 on CBC

For fellow Canadians, I think this documentary on CBC TV next week looks very interesting.

Filmmaker Maureen Palmer set out to make a documentary following her partner Mike Pond — a psychotherapist and an alcoholic five years sober — as he searched for the best new evidence-based addiction treatments. The intent was to help others battling substance use disorders.
But to the couple’s shock and dismay, shortly after filming began, Mike drank again. In Wasted, Mike and Maureen’s attitudes and assumptions about addiction are tested in real time as the couple search for a treatment that will work for Mike. A theoretical journey becomes very real and deeply personal.

What would an evidence based addiction treatment look like?

Sounds great -- not Canadian, but hopefully it will go up on Youtube.

Give us a report how it is -- I am very intrigued.

I will report! Yes, it would be great if it were shown on youtube at some point, even online through broadcasters' sites we can't always access broadcasts out of our own countries.

Evidence-based? Not sure yet what that means in this context but will let you know. here's the producer's Web site.
