Each episode of “Addicted” will focus on one person as they plot their recovery along with their family.

This is a series about family, change and hope,” said TLC prexy Eileen O’Neill. “While viewers will se the brutal battle for sobriety, it ultimately demonstrates the importance of substance abuse treatment, and makes for powerful TV.”

The addiction space has become hot in TV, with series such as A&E’s “Intervention” and VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”

In the case of “Addicted,” Wandzilak herself is a recovering addict who uses her own experiences as part of her intervention process.Wandzilak has written several books about addiction and is also a regular public speaker on the subject.

Addiction happens to good people and decent families all the time,” she said. “I know how to change a life, and I know how to live better.”
