That's what makes it so satisfying when they break through and start following the program and confront their demons. You see them go from just barely being alive to actually having a life and doing fun stuff with others. The dude who would go out and play catch with his step son while he was in a wheelchair was one. He eventually got out of the chair and the kid was stoked.
The opposite also happens when they fail. It is sad then like watching a drug addict go down.
