About the Film

Written and directed by Dan Jenskithe ground-breaking feature film explores the addictive nature of ADD prescription drug, Adderall, and the abusive cycle that college students experience as they attempt to use it to balance their lives.
 

Starring Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13, Event Horizon), Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, Criminal Minds), Luke Guldan (The Good Place, Law & Order), Lauren Sweetser (Winter’s Bone, NCIS: Los Angeles) and Taylor Black (Midnight, Texas, Lucifer), ADDicted brings to light the illicit and highly dangerous use of the prescription medication that two-third’s of college students have been offered at one time or another.

Like most college kids, Drew’s life is chaotic. Demanding classes. Football. Finals. A bad break-up. An overbearing mother. But what helps keep him balanced is his Adderall, a prescription he's been on since age 10 for ADD. But now he finds himself suspended from the football team for plagiarism. As his life starts to spiral out of control, he turns to his professor, but is it too late? What will it take for Drew to find peace with himself instead of a pill bottle?

Dan Jenski was inspired to make a film about the dangers of Adderall after he witnessed first hand his college friends turning to the drug to cope with the stress. As he found out more about the drug, he realised the large majority of users were completely unaware of the dangerous side effects. It was the realisation that 80% of college students surveyed believed that there were no dangers that inspired him to make ADDicted. 
 
ADDicted was shot entirely on location at the University of Missouri Columbia where Jenski was once a college student himself.
