Imagine finding comfort in behaviours that go beyond the call of bizarre. For example, sniffing petrol or eating rocks. Season 2 showcases more individuals who have turned to extreme measures to ease their anxieties.

There's Riley, who - to escape the stresses of the real world - lives life as a baby and wears a nappy; and Charmissa, who fills her bra with the dryer sheets she chews on every day. Later in the series drug addict Krista presents her 12 'children' - all of which are teddy bears.

Why have these individuals turned to such extreme measures in order to ease anxieties? Can anyone, or anything, shake them from their addictions before they injure themselves?
