Maddie, an adolescent drug user, has a reputation as a party girl, although she doesn't think she has a problem. When her school guidance counsellor confronts her about her drug use, it forces Maddie to choose between being expelled or entering rehab. Maddie chooses the latter option and moves into a sober living facility, where she lives with other recovering addicts. Combined with the regular pressures faced by teenagers in their everyday lives, life in rehab proves difficult for Maddie. "Recovery Road" is based on the young adult novel of the same name by Blake Nelson.
