Leah Patterson (played by Ada Nicodemou) still feels bad that she missed the signs leading to her boyfriend Justin Morgan's (James Stewart) painkiller addiction on Home and Away (Channel 5, 6.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Leah is determined to help Justin beat his addiction when he is released from the hospital after his overdose and collapse, but Leah is soon pushed to the edge of her commitment to Justin.

Desperate for more medication to satisfy his cravings, Justin starts ransacking the kitchen late at night. Leah tries to explain that they must stick to the schedule and she will give him his medication when the time is right, but Justin won't take no for answer.

When the desperate addict's behaviour takes a threatening turn, Leah is scared and locks herself in the bathroom!

As Justin continues to bang on the bathroom door and demand his pills, Leah can only wonder if she can handle this challenge all on her own.
