Summary Dr Chris van Tullenken has been trying to treat specially selected patients without drugs and wants to share what he's learnt with fourteen thousand patients at the clinic. The drug free clinic has an underwhelming launch, as Dr Chris learns that people would rather pop a pill than make lifestyle changes. Chris meets Crystal, who is taking 30 pills a day for her chronic back pain. Over five months and a dramatic withdrawal from her addictive meds, Chris leads her on an extraordinary road to recovery
