Quotes during the show:
"Persistent love plays a huge part in ability to heal and recover pain,trauma, and self worth. Tough love is not the answer. "
“Surrendering your will is not this defeatist approach to recovery. It's not this throw your hands in the air and not do anything. The beauty of it is that we don't have to hold onto the pain and suffering of the moment. You don’t have to sit in it anymore. Your higher power will take care of it."
