Each episode will take an emotional journey inside the minds of two teenage girls, ages 12-18, who are struggling to create healthy relationships with their dysfunctional mothers who are consumed with an obsession such as plastic surgery, weight, shopping, working out or partying.

But how committed are they to change?

Therapy Session - May 3 at 10 PM ET/PT Obsession ruins lives and destroys relationships... and when obsession enters a household it can rip families apart. Any activity, no matter how small, can become an obsession if left unchecked. When a person is so preoccupied with something that it is all consuming, dominates their daily life and becomes more important than personal relationships... obsession has taken hold. In the final episode My Mom Is Obsessed, using examples from our moms and daughters in crisis, the expert therapists demonstrate how to free a family from the grips of obsession and bring peace back into the household.
