MIAMI, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanya Young Williams, TV Personality, Celebrity Advocate Against Domestic Violence and CEO of Pivot Treatment and Wellness Centers, hosts a new show called Pivotal Addiction.  Pivotal Addiction explores the shocking realities in the life of an addict. Through sit down interviews with struggling addicts, the 15-minute Youtube distributed program depicts the raw, honest conversation about the addict's numerous overdoses, jail time, suicide attempts and daily abuse of opioids, heroine, methadone, cocaine and alcohol.  "Pivotal Addiction is 'Intervention' meets 'Dr. Phil' meets 'Undercover Boss.' The conversations are authentic, emotional and riveting. The viewer will be impacted!" says Young Williams.

Pivotal Addiction will premiere Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 8 PM on Pivot Treatment and Wellness Centers, self-titled Youtube channel. The episodes will run bi-weekly.

Pivotal Addiction endeavors to help the addicts turn their lives around," says Young Williams.
