Follows interventionist Kristina Wandzilak as she helps young men and women addicted to drugs and alcohol take their first steps toward recovery and a substance-free life. A sixteen-year veteran of heroin and methamphetamines, Alissa's entire life--and the life of her family--revolves around addiction. Supported financially by her seventy-year-old father Rodger, Alissa spends her days in a heroin-induced haze that has become her only comfort. Kristina has her work cut out for her with Alissa and her family, as they stubbornly dig in their heels and fight against the possibility of change.
