12-DVD Set plus one bonus DVD (total of 13 DVD’s)
The mission of this project is to record for history, in a video documentary format, the lives and recovery stories of people in ultra long-term recovery. CCAR believes that our stories of recovery are our prize possessions. None are richer, more laden with history, more chock full of wisdom, than those of people with ultra-long term recovery. We’re talking people with 25 or more years. Sadly, when these people pass away, their stories are often reduced to memories. Produced by Jim Mattingly of Mattingly Graphics, Inc.
CCAR created the Recovery Elders Video Project to preserve in a digital video format, the stories of our recovery elders for future generations so that they may leave behind a profound and powerful legacy, a Legacy of Hope. Each 30-plus minute DVD consists of an interview with one of the elders, interviews with family members and friends if available, photos from the elder’s life if available, and footage of places of interest and more when appropriate.
The first 5 videos are made possible through a grant by the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and will be reproduced and distributed to every recovery house in Connecticut free of charge. The elder will also receive 25 copies of their video to distribute as they see fit. CCAR will also send copies to archives, museums, treatment agencies and the general public at a nominal fee to help cover production costs.
