Marketing researchers are turning increased attention toward major social problems, such as homelessness, compulsive purchasing, and abortion. The authors extend these efforts by establishing some initial guidelines for the therapeutic use of motion pictures in drug rehabilitation programs. Recovering addicts evaluated four films that depicted drug addiction and alcoholism, using rating scales and personal commentary. Working with counselors and administrators, the authors discuss their responses and make suggestions regarding treatment programs.
