TV Talk: Recovery Road

Recovery Road

With ABC Family changing its name to Freeform in the new year comes new television shows. One in particular is Recovery Road and it so happens that Hulu has the first three episodes available to watch. After watching all three episodes I am a speechless, emotional wreck. Recovery Road is just wow. I’ve honestly never watched a show that captured the gripping reality of what the disease of addiction really is like. It showcased the reality of what addiction does to someone. It completely changes a person almost making them unrecognizable. It also showcased how blind and ignorant someone could be if they don’t understand how addiction and recovery works. Recovery Road tells the story of a group of people from all different walks of life who share one thing in common they are all battling some form of addiction and it’s so interesting to see how they are all dealing with it in their own way. While watching Recovery Road I honestly didn’t feel like I was watching a scripted television show. The acting felt so real, so raw. Each and every characters’ storyline just hits you with a dose of reality. Recovery Road is the definition of good television. It’s definitely a show that will get you thinking. It will spark conversations and you will definitely want more. The first three episodes were GOLD and I can’t wait for more. ABC Family/Freeform you guys have a winner.

Watch The First Three Episodes of Recovery Road on Hulu or you can watch Recovery Road on January 25th on Freeform at 9pm. 

  • This sounds really good! I’ll have to check it out. I noticed that ABC Family changed their name. A few years ago I heard they wanted to but were locked into keeping that name for awhile. I figured a name change would come at some point in the future.

    I didn’t realize ABC Family was changing its name! I guess that’s telling as to how much I watch network TV vs. Netflix, haha. Sounds like a good show!

  • I feel like I might get emotional watching this show. I have known so many people with addiction issues and recognize firsthand how addiction can ruin someone’s life. I bet this is an amazing show!

    • It definitely will have you emotional. By the third episode I was a complete wreck 😢

  • I love shows that bring light to current issues of today. I feel like this is an important one to share but many networks shy away from it .. go Freeform!

    Watching commercials for this show made me uneasy because of just how real it seemed. I’m glad that it’s lived up to its hype and captured the essence of real addiction.

  • Oh wow, maybe I’m behind the times, but I had NO idea ABC Family was changing its name!
