A Family Disease Episode 9

Perhaps the most emotionally powerful episode to date, the ninth installment of Recovery Now focuses on learning how to repair the complex damage done to personal and familial relationships in the wake of an addiction. Heather, a beautiful, soft-spoken young woman, shares how drug addiction ultimately destroyed her relationship with her ex-husband, Travis, and robbed her of the opportunity to be a mother to her baby daughter. Now with the help of therapist Carol, Heather faces Travis and reunites with her daughter for the first time in months. We also meet Michelle, a pain-pill addict, who has made a miraculous transformation. On the show and with the guidance of her counselor, Nancy, Michelle gets the opportunity to read a tearful amends letter to her daughter.
