To make the 2 x 1 hour films – Drugged: “High on Heroin” and “High on Crack” Anna Keel immersed herself in the lives of one crack addict in Florida followed by one heroin addict in Arizona.
Filming every intimate detail of their lives, including getting high, withdrawing, hustling and the tragic effects all this had on their families, these shocking, observational films also offered an insight into the elements in their back-stories that might have led them down such paths.
In exchange for letting cameras into their lives, Pioneer TV offered each addict the chance of a full medical and 90 days in rehab.
Each film drove towards how much damage the medicals would reveal, and whether or not this would be enough to convince them to get clean.
