'Hooked' synopsis: A group of young adults are each fighting their own battles with their addictions, pushing those around them to their limits, finding help seems to be the only way to solve their problems.

Episode 3 'Social Media' synopsis: Charlie is a typical teenager who spends time on his phone to check his social media to keep up with trends and memes. As his fiction of social media and notifications grow, so does the amount of time he spends on his phone, taking over the attention he would normally give to this present in his life, straining and causing tensions within these relationships. When all becomes too much to handle for Charlie, his mother steps in and offers a rehab/therapy program as encouragement to seek help and return things to the way they were.
