Summary
Carter Kirchner struggles to stay sane and sober as a counselor at Six West, an adolescent drug treatment center run by Sister Mary Xavier, a hard-drinking nun with an MBA. The young Kirchner is caught between Sister Mary's plan to rescue the center by reforming a hard-case kid and the dysfunctional staff's clumsy plan to intervene on their boss's drinking. Meanwhile, Carter's mother--who never forgave him for giving up a promising hockey career to treat his own addiction--lands in the hospital with an advanced case of cirrhosis. Before Carter can help the young addict commissioned to his care or safely navigate the staff's dysfunctional intervention effort, he must rescue himself from his family's broken past
