Location: East Texas
Addiction: Pain meds, Anxiety meds
What’s Memorable: “If I take enough medication I don’t have to feel the sense that I’m a really bad mother.” The extent to which Laurie gets obliterated on pills is actually painful to watch. I hope to goodness she was able to get it together since the intervention because she did not have a lot of time left.
Update: Laurie Moses-Roeseler passed away on on July 1, 2015. I do not know what the cause of death was. Obituary
Official synopsis: At one time, Laurie was a psychotherapist and mother of three. But then an addiction to pain killers and alcohol led to the loss of her job and her family, and now only an intervention can stop her from losing her life.
