Still image from The Gospel According To Mr. Allen

Famed for its tough-love staff, as well as for its Gospel Choir, the Addicts Rehabilitation Center (ARC) in Harlem has set a high standard in substance abuse treatment for more than four decades. When it was opened by James Allen, in the center of some of America's meanest streets, the ARC was New York State's first residential treatment center for addicts without money. Follows three addicts through several months in the Addicts Rehabilitation Center as they try to break the harsh grip of drugs. Peter wants to stay out of jail, Michelle would like to get her children back, and Brett hopes for a record contract. Can any of them really make it? Can the battle against poverty, hopelessness, and addiction ever be won? Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
