Tammy’s recovery from crack addiction

Filmmaker Brynn Campbell used her camera to compose an anti-stigma message in collaboration with Tammy, an Ontario woman long addicted to crack cocaine. The consequences of Brynn’s project were probably unexpected both by the videographer and her subject.

The video lets you see how Brynn’s unflinching presence supported Tammy in the recovery strategies she invented for herself —e.g., putting a purchase on hold for payday so that she would buy something durable instead of purchasing crack.

Campbell’s intention is to show Canadians that accepting an addicted person without judgment is the healthiest possible response, both for the person and for our society as a whole.
