Season 19. Episode 6
Location: Denver, Colorado
What’s Memorable: What a beautiful family they are! Sandra’s story is so unbelievably common- everything was great until she started taking opioids for pain and eventually moved to heroin when her prescriptions ended. I know there’s controversy around whether the root of the opioid crisis is doctors over-prescribing, but it’s hard to deny that it’s at least a major contributor when these kinds of stories are so prevalent now. What’s memorable – seeing this amazing, gorgeous mother leaving a skeevy motel room in the morning with a ‘better plan’ for scoring today.
Official Synopsis: As a fully committed mom, Sandra was involved in her kids’ school activities as well as after school sports. But in 2015, her abuse of prescription pills after an injury led to an opioid and heroin addiction. Within 2 years, this incredible mom has truly fallen from grace. Her family is desperate to get their loving mother back before it’s too late.
