A&E(R) PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL REAL-LIFE SERIES "RELAPSE"

FIVE-EPISODE, ONE-HOUR SERIES PROFILES FOUR OF THE COUNTRY'S LEADING SOBER COACHES AS THEY HELP HIGH-RISK ADDICTS BREAK THE CYCLE OF RELAPSE AND ADDICTION

DEBUTS MONDAY, APRIL 4 AT 9PM ET/PT

New York, NY, March 15, 2011 - From the Emmy Award-winning producers of A&E's critically acclaimed "Intervention" comes the new original real-life series, "Relapse." The five-episode, one-hour series, premiering Monday, April 4 at 9PM ET/PT, follows Gwen Casella, Doug Caine, Patty Powers and Seth Jaffe, four of the country's leading sober coaches, as they work to save the lives of addicts who have hit rock bottom.

More than 50% of addicts who get sober will relapse, and addicts who continue to do so generally need one-on-one help. Sober coaches are former addicts who have found their way back to clean living. They dedicate their lives to giving individualized attention to those who can't break their destructive habits. The coaches are often a last resort for addicts who have tried other methods to get sober but have failed.

In each episode of "Relapse" the coaches, over the course of a week, work one-on-one with addicts to get them through painful withdrawal symptoms, face personal challenges and reconnect with family and friends who have lost hope. For the first time ever, viewers ride along with the sober coaches as they jump into the lives of their clients, forming a bond that is the heart of every episode, and make them face their demons head on.

In the series premiere, David is a firefighter whose alcoholism has escalated into violent behavior. His wife won't allow their children to come near him, and he's been suspended from the fire department. Meanwhile, Brooke was a top student before her meth addiction and partying lifestyle forced her to drop out. Now, with the help of sober coaches, David and Brooke have one last chance to change before it's too late.

"Relapse" is produced by GRB Entertainment for A&E Network. Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Dan Partland are executive producers. Jeff Grogan serves as co-executive producer. A&E executive producers are Robert Sharenow and Jordana Hochman. Colleen Conway developed the series for A&E.
