Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very inspiring show. Drug and sex addiction is graphically displayed.

This is a show that shows the grim and harsh realities of drug addiction, alcoholism, and other harmful acts including self-mutilation, sex addiction, and abuse (both physical, psychological and sexual), all from real people and is graphically displayed, which can upset and disturb some viewers. It also reveals the people's past of how they've gotten themselves like they are, and intense thematic material is common throughout. Some scenes show the agonizing stages of drug withdrawal, its symptoms, which are triggered into physical and verbal throw downs between patients, and potentially harmful reactions which does show some patients pass out, have seizures, vomiting, suicidal attempts, and some characters don't make it through their addiction. Yet, it's a very inspiring show which can teach individuals about drug addiction and the serious yet potentially fatal consequences. Dr. Drew is one of the best, most experienced addiction Doctors in the world, specializing in drug and sex addiction, and his words of expertise and experience can inspire those who want to become just like him to help people with serious addictions.
