S14E2 Dana
Mike thought he’d realized his dream of having a happy, loving family with his wife and two sons. But a few years ago everything changed when he lost his brother to cancer and his sister to suicide. This triggered a tragic downward spiral. Mike’s nightly habit of having a few beers quickly turned into raging alcoholism. After his son broke up a physical fight between his parents, Mike agreed to give up drinking. Unfortunately, he replaced alcohol with heroin. If he doesn’t get help, his family says they will cut off ties to him forever. At 14, Lauren was forced to become caretaker to her ill father. By 18, she was a mother herself. Seven years and three kids later, Lauren’s father died and she turned to pills to cope. By the time she realized she was hooked, Lauren had lost her kids. Now Lauren’s drug abuse has escalated. Her mother, sisters and two teenaged children are rallying to make one last effort to get her into treatment. First Air Date: 06/01/2013
