    Now I haven't watched the show, but it seems like while they may mean good, I don't like the idea of televising individuals going through this hard time. It screams exploitation. What are your thoughts on something like this? I wouldn't be surprised if it also shines a poor light on drug use, it talks about how they focus on the cleanliness, but most responsible users are clean.

    I am interested in checking it out to see what it is like, but from the description, SWIM doesn't like the ideas behind it, they don't seem very pure.

    I've seen one episode a while back. It was about a stripper meth fiend. I understand where you're coming from about exploiting these poor souls, but the episode I saw featured said woman loving all the attention and excited about a documentary about her/addiction.
    Good and bad to it. I'm sure that the pressure and check ups from family/friends/show employees helps these former fiends stay clean.
