In this program, Shannon and Jay, joined by 16-year-old Dave, talk about the support they received in fighting their addictions. In addition, parents, counselors, a police drug-awareness coordinator, and the directors of a detox facility and a drug and alcohol program discuss the physical and emotional signs of drug use, theories of why younger children are turning to drugs, the easy availability of drugs in small towns, the difficulties parents face in addressing drug use, codependency between addicts and their families, and the painful process of recovery and making amends.
