2018 Award Winner

Phoenix Futures worked with an award winning TV Production Company and the BBC to produce a ground breaking two part documentary that shows life inside the country’s only rehab where mums, dads and children stay together. The documentary follows the parents through detox and an intensive therapeutic programme. Furthermore, the director and camerawoman were embedded within the service for 12 months capturing a unique view of the recovery process in depth. Phoenix Futures clearly demonstrated its passion and enthusiasm for the ‘Addicted Parents documentary’ project and the jury praised it as highly commendable work.
