Synopsis: As the world reels from the effects of COVID-19, this story offers real hope to those suffering from the other overwhelming universal plague … Addiction.

“The Final Fix” is an unflinching investigation into a little-known treatment for substance abuse, N.E.T. (Neuro Electric Therapy). Invented by Scottish surgeon, Dr. Meg Patterson, MBE, 45 years ago, N.E.T. is a non-pharmaceutical, safe and inexpensive device that claims to take people off of their drugs of choice in 5-7 days, with minimal discomfort (no cold turkey) and no future cravings. It’s an astonishing claim, but what if it were true? Why has this device been shunned by the medical establishments for all these years when it could actually be a complete game-changer in the world of addiction?

This compelling film explores the history of N.E.T. and follows five, long-term, chronic substance abusers on a remarkable journey as they undertake a trial of the treatment in Kentucky USA. Will it work? Could they really be drug-free within a week with no cold turkey? And if so … will it last?

Director's Statement

“The Final Fix” explores the story of a revolutionary treatment for addictions, with even more revolutionary claims. If it is possible to get off your drug(s) of addiction in 5-7 days, with minimal discomfort, and no more cravings, ever, then why has this pharmacy-free method not been recognised and embraced by those at the top of our current ‘Addiction Industry?’ More important still … Does this treatment really work? In this fascinating film we find out.

Prepare for surprises. This could change everything!
