Episode 122: Miriam

Miriam Season 8 episode 122

Miriam
Age: 38
Location: Fresno, California
Addiction: PCP
What’s Memorable: Miriam’s story and personality are memorable on their own, but just the fact that she’s been doing PCP for 25 years is what’s amazing. I didn’t even know PCP was still out there, much less that someone could do it for that long.

Official synopsis: A charismatic reverend at a wedding chapel, Miriam, 38, is adored by her clients, but suffers inner torment. Sexually abused as a child by someone she trusted, Miriam turned to drugs at a young age, and now she’s addicted to P.C.P. Her family has practically given up on her, and she risks losing her daughter’s love. Can Miriam’s desperate family convince her to get on the plane to treatment?
Original Air Date: July 2010

Categories: Childhood Sexual Abuse, Most Mentally Compromised Addicts, PCP, Season 8

  2. Wow! I was rooting so bad for her, and had no idea really which way she would go at the end. Frankly due to her long term usage and that it’s a delirium type drug I was waiting for that last caption saying she relapsed. But it got better than sobriety, she wound up having her daughter live with her!
    What a spirit she has, I loved watchjng her dynamic face and personality even though she was messed up from the drug. She has a lot of soul and beauty to her. I fiery spirit that’s for sure! Very lucky to have such a caring family, it’s interesting to see how a Latino family (Mexican) approached it. I personally find Latinos to be more compassionate and I think that was evident here. Her mother even came around.
    I’m so happy she wound up getting her daughter back!
    Hope you’re doing well to this day Miriam! Many blessings to you and your daughter and family!
