"The addiction wants to protect itself, so the addiction will tell you whatever it needs to, to keep itself alive," said Grace. "And my mom, she didn't identify with being an alcoholic, and by all means, she didn't look like an alcoholic. I still have that feeling that I couldn't help my mom. My head tells myself, 'No, really, we did everything we could.'

"But in my heart, in the heart of anyone who loves someone, it never feels OK to see somebody that you care about not able to get better."
