The importance of the work done by this team cannot be underestimated. Their heart & soul shows through every episode in helping to find a solution to addiction for each individual. I hope you can watch to gain a sense of how far families must travel to get the help for their loved ones. And in the end, how the ends lead to the means of helping families access appropriate care.
