14 June 2013 | by Becky BSee all my reviews

there has been 17 seasons and nobody thought to add the addiction to the title. How are people supposed to use this show for further references? We can't exactly say what the addiction is from a person's 1st name. Would it have been so hard to put something like "Mary - drug addiction" or whatever the addiction is. I'm on a health site with people all over the planet. I'd love to tell them this was a great resource. Truth is it sucks for the certain educational values. One guy is in India and I'd love to be able to give him episode #'s to watch for sex addiction. Nope..a a great idea to help the individuals. Just not if you don't know which is which.
