back in Flint last summer.

Mia made the same promises.

She took the same dramatic vow of sobriety

before chucking her dope down the toilet.

She lasted eight hours and quit.

So, we don't want to give

her that chance this time.

What do you mean?

David, when she breaks...

and believe me, she will...

we don't want to let her leave.

What do you mean?

You want force her to stay here?


This time the only way

is the hard way, man.

- She won't survive another OD.

- What?

Mia OD'd?

She didn't just OD.

Legally, your sister died.

They had to defibrillate her.


We all need to be together on this.

Otherwise it won't work.

Good boy.

I came here to make things

better with my sister, not worse.

If she asks me to take her home at some

point I'm going to have to do it.

I can't stand it! F*ck!

I can't stand it!

What the f*ck is that smell?

I know.

It's okay. It's okay.

I can't stand that fucking smell anymore.

Lie down, okay?

We're here for you.

I know, I know.

We're all here.

We're not going anywhere.

Withdrawal is kicking in hard.

This should help you

get through the night.

I don't know what

is wrong with you people...

but there is something dead

and it reeks.

But there is no smell.

You're just extra-sensitive right now.

I just can't stand that

fucking smell anymore.


Is that blood?


What's your medical diagnosis now?

It fucking stinks.

Shit. Careful.

These steps are old and rotten.

Yeah, like this whole freaking house.

I know.

It smells like burnt hair.

I think it's back there.

Oh, my God!


What is this?

I don't know. Witchcraft?

Who would do this?

Shit, something burned here.


Shit, man.

What the f*ck happened here?

Let's not go crazy over this. Okay?

I'll bury those dead cats
