I found this show on a fluke. When i read the storyline I was shocked to see that television was actually going to touch on a very real subject. I was extremely disappointed to see that it only lasted 2 seasons. If we had more shows like this one maybe the reality of addiction might sink in. But it makes people uncomfortable and society would rather turn a blind eye that face reality. I am a sometimes recovering addict. I have great clean time and then i dont, and for no particular reason other than I am a addict. For me this show keeps things in perspective. I've read some of the other reviews and its a shame to see what people complained about and how they really couldn't see the real picture. Addiction is real. The struggle and despair are real. The denial, the hurt, the fears, the solidarity is real. And the battle is daily, every single day for the rest of an addicts life, everyday for the ones who are close to a addicts life. Addiction doesn't only affect the addict but their loveds ones to. It is a never ending war. We win some battles and we lose some battles. But we keep fighting the good fight. For those who found this show offensive and too graphic, good!! I hope you kept watching cause this is only partially what addiction can look like. If you ask me, this is a PG rated show compared to what the reality of it really looks like. This is what reality TV should be, who cares about what celebrities had sex scandals or who can out last who on popularity votes. Wake up America, this is reality. Benjamin Bratt at his finest... I give the show a 20!!!
