The Art and Addiction show is the first exhibition of its kind in the state of Florida. The 2010 show received substantial attention with over 120 attendees at the opening. In addition to the Limelight section in the Democrat, the Addiction show was covered twice by the FSU View (Florida State University Independent Student Newspaper).

Amanda E.M. Alders Ph.D. Candidate, Student & Graduate Teaching Instructor at Florida State University curated the show. Here is a quote of her explanation of her work:
"In August of 2009, Johns Hopkins Innovator's Combating Substance Abuse Program sent out guidebooks to artists whose art had been published in their Addiction & Art book. This guidebook, which is available on their website, outlined how to organize a local art show on art and addiction. As a contributing artist and art therapy PhD student, the idea for a show interested me. This video tells the story of an art exhibition on the theme of drug addiction and recovery, the lives that were touched by the art and the artists who created the work. "
MS Alders also created a YouTube site with a video documentary of the show:
The video mentions addiction and art show guidelines. You can get them from the addictionandart.org site Here.
