AETV has recently introduced their newest addiction/reality show “Relapse”. RELAPSE is the new docu-reality series on A&E that follows sober coaches as they work to save the lives of addicts who have relapsed on drugs and alcohol. “Sober coaching” is a last resort for addicts who have tried other methods to get sober and have failed. South Carolina also has a vast number of resources for addiction as well. If you are currently suffering from addiction and live in Orangeburg, South Carolina, please see: The William J. McCord Center for help today. For more information about the specific services offered, or to make a referral or schedule an individual appointment, please call (803) 534-2328.

This form may be filled out by either a loved one or the addict themselves. Please fill out as many fields as possible, as it will aid the producers of the show in selecting candidates.

The consequences of drugs were minor in comparison with the lifestyle she was living. Read more here.
