First of all, great topic choice. As I have only watched the first episode, I think it is not a bad way to translate addiction into teenage tv. While at first Maddie´s own problems seem not even that bad, I am looking forward to see, how they develop it. Since taking addiction to lightly is one problem with teen addiction, it may be a good way to go forward with the show. Showing that there are a lot of small things and that there is a lot going on outside of schoollife with your classmates that you wouldn´t think about. While a lof of teen shows struggle with some kind of substance abuse, most of the time there is one character fighting with it, but you never really see how. They just get sent somewhere to recover. This show at least goes one step further. So it should probably be careful not to make rehab into some kind of fun adventure like summer camp.

I couldn't finish the first episode, yawn. Didn't catch my attention, and I assume it'll be cancelled before it gets any better.

Kind of like a mashup of Red Band Society and The Fosters, though in this case the character's backstories make for a more interesting sense of context and grounding for the show. So far, so good!

Really Compelling. It was a bit slow, but a show like this wouldn't work fast-paced

I enjoyed it. It had alot of potential as far as story lines and the coming and going of character new and old because recovery is a lifetime process. I wish it wasn't canceled.

This is one of the best shows I've seen for a teen and drama genre! The characters, the overall story lines and scripts are clear and keeps my at the edge of my couch. It's also educational without being too in your face about it, which is good for those who are dealing with these problems in the real world. Some of the scenes are very intense but thats what really attracts me to the show; that it resembles and reenacts real-life situations.

I really like the theme and I love watching the (hopefully) relationships to be developing :)
I think it's an important subject and could lead to something big... great show...
