Bringing up children when work is scarce is never easy, but it becomes an uphill battle if you are also struggling with addiction. This episode follows the impact that addiction can have on family life.

Gail's partner died of alcoholism in his 30s and Gail is now trying to keep her daughter, who was deeply affected by the loss of her stepfather, from going off the rails.

Emma wants to keep her family together, but can her son's dad stay free from alcohol and tablets?

Meanwhile, Dean has been helping his little brother Greg with his job search.
