Official synopsis: Jason, 23, was born into a strict Southern Baptist family. His father, a preacher, and his unstable mother doled out excessive punishments. But when Jason’s mother revealed she’s a lesbian, Jason’s father was banished from the church and had to take several jobs to feed his family. Left with no supervision, Jason turned to drugs and alcohol. And now his younger sister, Joy, is heading down the same self-destructive path, too. Can a double intervention save them?

  2. What a sweet, lost soul. I was crushed at the very end when it said he was drinking again. I truly hope he was/is able to keep it under control. This episode really touched me, especially the older sister who mothered her siblings after the mom left.

  3. I thought it said he has been sober since 2008? I found him to be very attractive at the end of the episode!

  5. i don’t understand why candy didn’t have the mother apologize for leaving them at the mercy of their horribly abusive father and that she also didn’t have BOTH parents, but particularly the father, apologize for the severe abuse. i don’t get it?? jason, and frankly ALL the kids, need to hear that. to help them heal. i’m really disappointed in this episode.

  6. Has anyone been able to find out anything about Jason and Joy? I have searched and searched and cant find anything. This is my all time favorite episode. I totally relate to Jason with the family stuff, my family was always pretty dysfunctional and as an adult i found substances make all those memories go away for awhile. At 57 now ive grown out of partying but im on pain medication for the rest of my life (im a cancer survivor) and even now all these years later i still find myself taking my meds to “forget” things. Jason just really touched my soul listening to him talk about his past.

  7. I wonder how this brother & sister are today? Joy’s son would be about 13-? Very sad story & not sure why these siblings were not taken away or the parents investigated when their sisters arm was broken from being abused-? I wish them all well & hope that they all got help.
