Storyline

A teenaged drug addict is sent to Dr. Royce's controversial drug intervention program where the addicts in the program confront each other in supervised group meetings. Also, in evening meetings, the addicts are confronted by their families. The girl's parents want to remove her from the program because it upsets them that their daughter is being forced to associate with addicts who admit to stealing and trading sex for drugs. They remain in denial until their daughter admits at a family confrontation meeting the extent of her drug addiction. After this they are able to address their own feelings about being the family of a hardcore drug addict. The daughter is reunited with her family only after all of them have acknowledged her addiction and accepted therapy for it. Written by Steven W. Siferd <72233.741@compuserve.com>

Vile!
13 August 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is the WORST made for TV movie I've ever seen! I'm not kidding. This thing was so bad that I had to laugh at certain parts. I really do not understand how this kind of crap can be made. It boggles the mind. Avoid at ALL costs.
