ABC Family Orders Teen Addiction Drama Recovery Road to Series

ABC Family logo

ABC Family junkies, prepare for your next major addiction — wildly inappropriate puns intended.

The network on Tuesday announced a series order for Recovery Road, an hour-long drama about Maddie, a teen party girl who’s suddenly faced with a life-changing ultimatum: rehab or expulsion. But how long can she keep her new digs — a rehab facility amongst other addicts — a secret from the other kids at school?

Written by Bert V. Royal (Easy A) and Karen DiConcetto (Ruby & the Rockits), Recovery Road is based on Blake Nelson’s novel of the same title.

No casting or scheduling information is available at this time.

    There’s no point in watching any abc family show until it’s been renewed for at least a second season (unless you’re a Neilsen viewer). They’re the most cancel-happy network on television.

      No they aren’t. Alot of times they’ll give a show 2 seasons when it was crap from the start. Examples The Lying Game.

      I’ll watch if Sam Logan is still the lead

  2. johnhelvete says:

    The book is great. Sucks if they recast Samantha Logan as the lead, not that familiar with her as an actress but I did see her episode on the Fosters and was hoping she would be the 2015 Italia Ricci when the show premieres.

    I feel like this could either be wonderful and horrible for the young recovery community…only time will tell I guess!

  4. Jess says:

    Sounds interesting. will definitely check it out.

  5. bri says:

    I am so excited that Recovery Road has been picked up! I am a retired teacher and this plot sounds so interesting! Think I’ll read the book over the Holidays!
