    I am so glad the show has been picked up by LMN. It is powerful and inspirational. There is hope for recovery and this show enlightens those who cannot comprehand the devastating impact addiction has on family friends and society. It is not a joke. It is deadly serious.

    A very good program. There are so many families nowdays that are confused about what to do about relatives who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, and don’t know what to do about it. I, personally have a 60-year-old sister addicted to crack cocaine, and don’t know how to go about an intervention. I would appreciate any information.
