With graduation looming, tensions on the unit reach a boiling point. In an explosive process group, Jasmen and Michael gang up on Deanna, forcing Dr. Drew to take control. Upset with the treatment from her fellow patients, Deanna refuses to attend sober living, throwing her sobriety into danger.
Outside the recovery center, Dr. Drew heads off Drewbee and convinces the troubled addict to return to treatment. Erika's boyfriend Stefanos calls the center intoxicated and Erika realizes she must make a difficult choice between her sobriety and the man she loves. And later, one of the patients can't take the stress and pressure of treatment and leaves the Pasadena Recovery Center for good.
Dr. Drew reunites the patients with their families. Ashleigh and her sister Holly reveal to their mother a painful secret both have been harboring for decades. Dr. Drew is stunned to learn that Jasmen doesn't intend to go to sober living, and Drewbee is set on edge by his emotional parents and threatens to abandon his treatment all together.
Ashleigh's seizure continues and she's rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Deanna opens up about some horrible trauma in her past, inspiring another patient to finally reveal a secret she's been holding in since she was a child.
Lead Counselor Bob Forrest is able to find Eric walking aimlessly through the streets of Pasadena, and he convinces him to return back to the unit. Eric half-heartedly apologizes to the other patients, but the next day in process group emotions explode once again. Deanna's boyfriend Angel is released from prison in NY after a three year sentence, but their first phone call ends abruptly when he finds love letters to other men written by Deanna.
As the patients approach the halfway point, many are doing much better, but for some the hardest part is yet to come. Drewbee's paranoia gets the best of him and he's nearly discharged for breaking the rules.
Eric and Ashleigh's fight from the hike continues back on the unit. Jasmen's denial about the severity of her addiction upsets the patients, and when Erika confronts her, it starts a war that threatens to divide the group. Dr. Sharp helps Heather understand and control her rage, and Jasmen reveals a shocking secret that's been haunting her and driving her to use.
At this stage in treatment, Dr. Drew and his staff begin to reduce the patients' detox medications, which causes them to become agitated and emotional.
As the numbing effects of drugs and alcohol wear off, powerful feelings begin to take hold of the patients, and in an emotional process group one of them shares suicidal thoughts.
