  1. I root so much for Sam.

    Jesse is a really good interventionist

  2. Samantha will not be able to stay clean as long as that loser boyfriend is in her life. She will most likely have to leave Kamloops BC and settle somewhere else far beyond his reach in order to stay in recovery.

    I hope she moves far away and builds a new sober life for herself, and then sends for her children after being clean for a full year.

  3. I have a hard time feeling sympathy for Sam. She has so many people in her court that have consistently helped pulled her up and get her life back on track. And she kept going back to the same, drug-addicted boyfriend! She KNOWS he is/was a trigger- yet she put herself and kids on a greyhound bus to go to him?!

  4. Sam’s step father Mike is an amazing man. Watching his love for his family is beautiful. Father of the year for sure!

  5. During the whole episode, I thought she looked the same age as her mother, but in worse shape.
    At the end, I could not recognize her, I even said ‘wow’ out loud in front of my screen.
    I’ve rarely seen someone look so different on and off drugs.
    I really hope she managed to stay clean

  6. She isn’t using fentanyl and seems to be smoking meth.
    Mike the stepdad needs to “deal” with Harley if she ever stands a chance

  11. Her mother’s facebook page says she’s single. She seems to be enjoying the single life too with her friends. Wonder what happened to their marriage. I’m actually sad that he’s no longer in the family. He was such a loving step-father and husband.

  12. Apparently still addicted. This video is from April 2019 interviewing her mother. States she is living on the streets and that Samantha hasn’t seen her daughters in 2 years.

  13. Ugh her boyfriend was absolutely worthless, and it’s so sad to see Sam continue on the cycle of domestic violence. Her family is beautiful too, her daughters were bright eyed and her brother was pretty funny too. It’s sad because if she got sober she’d have a beautiful life.

    Unfortunately I didn’t see too much hope for Sam…I hope I’m wrong

  14. I looked at the Facebook attached and it’s old, so I searched her name. Found an updated one and she posted a status asking for “g” and told people to call her. I googled drug slang and the only drug that has a code name that they had on there was “goodfella” which is fentanyl. That was her drug of choice. It’s really heartbreaking because her kids deserve better and she looked so good at the end of the episode, but she’s already back down to being super tiny and abusing drugs. That status was from June or July I believe of this year-2020. 🙁
