    What ever happened to Billy?

    1. Andy

      It says on the Wikipedia page of this show that he has been sober since July 2006 but I haven’t seen any other updates on him since then. I wonder how he’s doing now.

  2. Holly

    Any updates on this guy? It broke my heart when he stole his mother’s Avon money to get high. It’s sick what this disease makes you do sometimes!

    I’ve seen every episode and out of all of them there were only 3-5 people I had trouble caring about. Billy was one of them.

      I was in outpatient with Billy several years later. I believe he is sober now…I hope so! Billy where are you..hmu!

    Did anyone else catch the fact that he licked the blood off his arm after he got done shooting up? Like….. bro get a tissue

    when he battled with himself over whether to buy drugs with his moms Avon money or not to… always stuck with me. the going back & forth, weighing the pros & cons..knowing there are zero pros & fooling urself into thinking that you might actually make the right choice when deep down you know the deed is already done. been there. hope hes doin well today🙂
