Picking up where he left off, Teddy shares some of his final memories as an addict in active addiction and describes his journey to recovery in raw detail. In this fourth and final episode, we rejoin Teddy in a memory where he finds himself meeting up with his dealer, a guy named Jamaica – at some run-down, sketchy hotel. Jamaica went off on his own to score some Roxy’s for Teddy. When he returned, he found Teddy smoking crack with a random homeless woman. No one could have every guessed that the next time Teddy and Jamaica would ever see each other would be at a meeting, where Teddy would have 9 months clean, and Jamaica would be asking him to be his sponsor. This surreal moment kind of sets the premise for what the next few years of Teddy’s life would be like.
