He started drinking alcohol freely. Millions of people are struggling with addiction and many of them need help to stop addiction. Dr. Sadaqat Ali, project director of Willingways and Sadaqat Clinic, explains that addiction is a chronic disease caused by an unhealthy brain and this mental disorder makes us seek drugs and then it forces one to take drugs due to which it brings out harmful results for the person itself and the people around.
People make the initial decision to take drugs voluntarily, but changes in an addict’s brain over time interfere with their personal control and ability to stay away from drugs. Fortunately, treatment is available for such people.
This documentary is about Lorraine’s addiction.
According to Lorraine’s family: Her life was always full, but now she drinks three liters of alcohol every day and can’t do anything without it. Lorraine now suffers from tremors, blackouts and mood problems. Lorraine is a 26-year-old alcoholic girl. She starts her day with alcohol According to Lorraine, she hates alcohol but she has to drink it to get rid of the hangovers and I can’t live without it. Lorraine’s same-sex partner Christy, aged 35, drinks 5 liters of alcohol a day. Lorraine started drinking at age 12 and Christy at 11 for long periods. Thanks to alcohol abuse, Christy’s liver stops working by 10 percent. As shown in this episode, these two were each other’s support. Her mother said that these two could not live without each other at all. Lorraine was adept at eliciting sympathy from others and that’s what made his broken feelings stronger as shown in some of the scenes in this episode. His family was afraid that he might lose his life.
At the age of 5, Lorraine started having problems with management and was abandoned by her father during this time. Lorraine was the most affected of the three children. When Lorraine turned 7, her mother and stepfather became very close to her. Lorraine’s stepfather was an alcoholic himself and has been sober for 29 years. When Lorraine was 14 years old she had a relationship with a man who died in a car accident and since then Lorraine started drinking alcohol and has continued to drink alcohol since then and has not been able to stop. According to her mother, she used to drink alcohol to cope with her pain.
However, after school she went to college and after graduation worked as a health care provider and by then was doing just fine. When Lorraine was 21, her paternal grandfather died, and she revealed that the incident had shaped her. At the age of 23, she also became addicted to crack cocaine.
As shown in this episode, Lorraine’s half-brother died of a heroin overdose 18 months ago. Lorraine took the blame for the incident on herself, wishing she could convince her brother to seek treatment, but he didn’t. Not long after, Lorraine attempted suicide. It was Mother’s Day and Lorraine’s mother was praying for her daughter’s life, and according to her stepfather, she has never been like that since her son’s death from a drug overdose. I want the same thing to happen to my step daughter. Last year, Lorraine was brought into rehab where she met Christy and quickly withdrew from treatment, and then Christy and Lorraine began living together.
It is unfortunately common in addiction treatment to drop out of treatment before completing treatment with the idea that I am completely cured and this is considered childish thinking. According to Dr. Sadaqat Ali, it is a chronic disease that requires long-term treatment, its treatment includes mood, stress management, responsibility and discipline. Improving recovery involves families needing to be honest as well as not allowing the patient’s addiction to become active. According to Lorraine, she wants to improve but it is difficult for her to do so and her stepfather is very worried about Lorraine’s condition. Christy and Lorraine were both at their worst. Christie said that the car accident changed her and she went into depression.
According to Christie’s mother: Her children were not important to Christie. Christie has two sons, ages 11 and 16. One son lives with his father and the other son lives with Christy. Christy’s mother reported that on one occasion Christy overdosed in front of her son and attempted suicide. The main reason behind the suicide was his mood disorder, depression and bipolar depression (this can be due to internal as well as external factors) external environmental stress while internal physiological changes come from influence.
When it comes to children and marriage, Christy says, “I’ve lost so much. Now all that’s left is my life, which I’ll lose very soon.” Christy has an addiction to prescription drugs and takes 17 pills a day.
According to Lorraine’s mother: Both of them are addicted to drugs, alcohol and each other. Christy had frequent episodes of vomiting blood, liver failure and was losing weight rapidly. Lorraine’s tremors can be triggered by drinking too much or too little alcohol. A couple of scenes show Lorraine’s uncontrollable tremors. Christy and Lorraine’s mother would lift him from a chair to the floor during seizures and give him anti-seizure medication every eight hours. Christy also developed jaundice, which was a sign of liver failure. Her doctor told her that she had to change her lifestyle if she didn’t and she could die within a year. Became very worried about what would happen to her children if she died. With prescription drugs and alcohol she was near death, Christie was served with divorce papers and her son was taken from her. Christie’s alcohol and drug use Christy was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and an obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Provides treatment for addiction patients on an inpatient basis, including individual counseling, group and family therapy. Galloway understands that intervention is not the process that affects the patient, but rather teaches the family how to work together to bring the patient to treatment.

Both Lorraine and Christy are near death and this intervention may be their last hope. Galloway clarified the process and purpose of the intervention does and tells the family that this last chance could save their lives.
