About

Roots of Addiction illustrated by Fabian Debora
Roots of Addiction illustrated by Fabian Debora

Roots of Addiction will be a 24 page full color graphic novella designed by Fabian Debora of Home Boys. The text for this was written by Dr. Darryl Inaba of CNS Productions Inc and will illustrate how heredity, the environment, and psychoactive drugs are the trio of forces that create the conditions for addiction. The story generally follows the script of the award winning film of the same name and explains to the general public how psychoactive drugs and behavioral addictions like gambling work on the brain. Through a set of characters we see how once people get exposed to an addictive agent the neuropharmacological components of the dopamine survival pathway which compels them to continue use despite negative consequences.

Risks and challenges

CNS Productions is uniquely qualified to tell this story. With 40 years of experience we have produced over 50 films and eight versions of the textbook Uppers, Downers, All Arounders. Our greatest challenge now is to reach out to supporters to help us with this mission to bring quality content to the public for an affordable price.
