cleaner daze, AN ORIGINAL SERIES

Cleaner Daze is an award-winning series about addiction and recovery, written by a recovering drug addict.  It's raw, it's real, it's relevant.

The story follows Jasmine, a newbie drug counselor as she struggles to wrangle a misfit crew of teenage drug addicts while secretly battling her own addiction.

Cleaner Daze  shines a light on the realities of living with addiction and reminds us there's a little fucked-up in all of us.



Cleaner Daze is produced by Loud and Clean, a non-profit organization dedicated to "out loud" creative works which honor personal stories over statistics, spread a message of hope, and promote creativity as a vehicle for recovery.

Loud and Clean is interested in stories from the bottom, stories that celebrate tiny personal victories, and stories that explore the magic of recovery. If you want to join our mission, have a story to share, would like to be featured in our newsletter, or just want to connect somehow, we'd love to hear from you!

The world of Cleaner Daze is a world I know. Sixteen years ago, after a near-death heroin overdose, I checked into rehab, started over, and ultimately went on to become a filmmaker. I'm all about transforming shame into a source of super power! When we "recover out-loud", the past no longer has power over us.  Today I choose to be loud and clean!

Cleaner Daze honors recovery, acknowledges addicts as human beings, and places value on real life experience.  Many of our cast are non-actors with histories of addiction. Several don’t have headshots; they have mugshots. Some have spent time hopeless or behind bars - and that's part of what makes Cleaner Daze so unique and special. It means everything to me to provide opportunities to people who haven’t had many and the reality they bring to the show lights up the screen. Watch Cleaner Daze! You'll see what I mean. 

"I'm a group hugger. that's my kind of directing."
