Okay, it's clear.

Let's go.

What are you doing?

Shouldn't I stay with the car?

Come on, Ash,

we already talked about this.

You know, we need the money and

your drug habit ain't so cheap.

Dude, I thought you said

he never turns on the alarm.

Ashley! Ashley!

Out right now!



Get in the car!



Stop, this is the police.

Drop what you got

in your hands!

In the healing process,

you will find that there can be

many triggers in your path,

keeping you from

a full recovery

of the disease

of drug dependence.

Making drug independence,

a journey that always seems

out of reach or

an unattainable goal.

So, how do we make

the unattainable attainable?

Or in other words, maximize

the highest rate of success?

Any ideas?

As, you know, Ashley has

successfully completed

our inpatient drug

rehabilitation program.

We also take measures to

insure the continued success

of the patient in their

outpatient program.

In our recent discussions,

Lisa, you-

given your current situation-

What current situation?


I Did what you wanted

and even now you don't want me.

Look, you're on probation

and I'm done making sure

that you stay out of trouble.

So where does that leave me?

I've talked to your aunt,

about you staying

with her for a while.

You could ride horses

with her like you used to.

Travis, what

are you doing here?

I came to get you.

Are you crazy?

After what you did to me.

I took the fall for you.

Just get out of here

before my aunt shows up.

I'm sorry, okay?

I didn't know what to do.

I saw the cops and tried

to warn you, I swear.

The reason I was in this

place is because of you.

The whole thing was your idea.

I'm the one who had to

spend 6 months in here,

and on top of that,

I still have another

Just stay away from me!

Let me show you to your room.

Wanna help?

No, I don't know how

to cook or anything.

Come on, I got most

of it done already.

You can mix the salad.

Come on.


But I'm just doing the salad.


Mind if I say grace?

Lord, we thank you for this

meal that is before us,

and I thank you for

this time with Ashley.


Hey, not so much!

So I guess you think I turned

out to be a real screw up, huh?

I didn't realize

you were done yet.

A few short years ago,

you wouldn't have

given up so easily.


How are you?

Come on in.

You guys take a seat.

Thank you.

And I'll be right back.

I totally forgot I had

this Bible study group

coming over tonight.

Take your time, I just

need to get ready,

and you're more than welcome

to join us if you want.

Well, maybe some other time.

So, how's it going

with your niece?

At this point,

I'm trying to

meet her where she is.

I'm trying to follow

Christ's example.

I just wanted to

let you know, I'm here

and things are okay.

She can't talk right now.

Your sister has a Bible

group over or something.

You know how she is.

I'll call you later, okay?

I'm tired.


Hey, Ash, I'm heading out.

I have riding lessons over

at the stable this morning.

Well, if you want

to come by later,

I'm right down the street.

You remember where it is?

I remember.

Well, help yourself to

anything in the kitchen.

I just stocked up on

fresh fruit and stuff.

I'll see you later, okay?


Hey, Chip.

Remember me?

So how many horses

do you have out here?

Ten or so.

Most of them are

border-owned horses.

I have the same clients as

when you used to come out

a few years ago,

before you guys moved.

Before things went downhill.

I wish we never left.

Or at least when we lived out
