Last summer, for the first time, The Rutland Centre allowed film cameras through the doors to observe the treatment process, and to follow the progress of some of the Rutlandís clients. Just over 30 years have passed since the Rutland Centre was established in Dublin to provide treatment for those suffering from the problems of addiction. Much has changed in the intervening decades: the range of addictions has greatly increased, the average age of addicts has fallen, and more women are now receiving treatment. However, the core work of the Rutland has remained constant - and the need for its services is undiminished. In the first episode of the two part series, the focus is on the clients as they work with the Centreís personnel to overcome their individual addictions Ė whether these relate to alcohol, drugs, gambling or food. The Rutlandís councillors are also a key component of this series: offering another perspective on addiction and recovery, and, in the process, revealing how the Centre works. In the second episode, the same clients are followed outside the Rutland as they set off on the demanding road of recovery.
