(NEW YORK, NY)— The powerful one-hour docu-series ADDICTED returns to Discovery Fit & Health Tuesday, August 28, at 10 PM ET/PT. Season two opens the doors to the complex journey of addiction while following the unpredictable ride to recovery as top interventionist Kristina Wandzilak works with nine individuals with uncontrollable addictions, and the friends and family members who are seeking to help them.
Whether pushing away their families, blowing their life savings or breaking the law to feed their addictions, addicts do anything and sacrifice everything for drugs and alcohol. Getting sober is their only chance to stay alive and win back their families’ trust. Kristina, Executive Director and founder of Full Circle Intervention and a recovering addict herself, steps in to help these addicts and families by pulling from her own experiences and bringing understanding and compassion to the healing process. In addition to her strength and commitment to sobriety, Kristina is a mother, top-selling author (The Lost Years) and one of the most sought-after, unconventional addiction interventionists in the country. Kristina will empower the addicts not only to get sober, but also to live the healthy life they deserve, but the question is, will they accept her help?
This season of ADDICTED will feature the following stories: Lindsay, a 25-year-old addicted to prescription painkillers; 22-year-old Aaron who is addicted to heroin; 33-year-old Megan and 48-year-old Theresa, both alcoholics; Josh, 37, Jason, 38 and Phil, 58, all addicted to meth and Gina & Sean, a 35-year-old and 27-year-old married couple addicted to heroin and meth.
