Staged and Misleading TV Show
30 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, the idea of the show is great. It can really help show the ugly side of drug addiction. But half of it is staged with a script and after watching every episode I estimate that nearly 95% of the characters have been raped or molested before. 95%!! I can only remember one character that doesn't have a history of being raped/molested. Yet I know plenty of people who struggle with drugs and addiction without ever being physically abused. Are they implying that every addict has a history of sexual abuse? ABSOLUTELY. They do it for shock value. To tell a more dramatic story. Guys or girls it doesn't matter. Basically ALL the people on the show were raped or molested. Not in real life though.

That is completely disgusting and damaging to our society. NOT EVERY ADDICT WAS RAPED! Typical fake "reality show" that just wants ratings.
