In the episode ‘Meet The Jones’ from ‘The Cleaner’ TV Show, a concerned husband hires William Banks to help his drug addicted soccer mom wife( Barbara ). William Banks, played by Benjamin Bratt, is assisted by his team of former drug addicts to help pull Barbara out of her addiction. William Banks, a former junkie now turned drug counselor, agrees to take the case after uncovering a suburban drug ring involving the wife and several of her friends.
Akani Cuesta, a member of William’s team, visits every doctor that the husband’s wife has visited in the past and asks for prescriptions for drugs that could be used recreationally (recreation drugs). All of the doctors had previously written her a prescription. After the encounters with the doctors, the team confronts each doctor and explains to each the situation of the wife’s major drug addiction.
During the drug addicted soccer mom’s daughter’s birthday, she realizes she ran out of medication and goes on a rampage searching for her stash. She knows she doesn’t have anymore and she tries to go obtain a prescription. All of the doctors turn her down and explains to her the risks and consequences of her drug addiction. When Barbara gets back to her house, she is distraught and showing withdrawal symptoms.
Her husband continues to help her addiction by canceling bank accounts and credit cards to keep her from buying drugs off the street. Soon after, she pulls out whatever cash she has left around the house and drives off to a street dealer. The dealer turns her down like the doctor while William watches from the background.
After the wife arrives home, she purposely slams her hand into a drawer. The husband starts having a serious talk to her about her addiction. She breaks down crying and promises she will try to quit. The husband believes his wife and tells William he has helped enough.
Based on Williams personal experiences as a former junkie, he knows that his wife only said she would quit, but would not go through with it. She continues using and her husband finds out. In the end, she ends up at rehab and cleans up her act. Both her and her husband thanks William for saving her life.
