For the millions of individuals with drug addictions, there are plenty of facilities out there for help. Some are public, some are private, but all have the goal of helping addicts to move on from drugs and live healthy lives again. Nothing in life is perfect, however, and sometimes things go awry at such facilities. Our guest this week tells the story of her son, who entered such a facility and never came out. She speaks of her own investigation of her son’s death, officially ruled a suicide, and the obstacles she encountered – and overcame – on her quest for the truth.


  • Did Mia’s son Julian take his own life or was it murder?
  • Mia’s research reveals many deaths at rehab facilities.
  • Mia uses social media to raise awareness of her son’s situation.
  • The real problem? Lack of oversight.
