This is an opportunity for the network and writers of Two and a Half Men to educate and illustrate what the life that they promoted on their show can lead to. The life of drugs, alcohol and indiscriminate sex was glorified on the show. Sheen lived it in his real life and it destroyed him. He is an addict. They could show him in this light and how with strength and support he could overcome it. Or they could show him ending as many do: death, in prison, estranged. There is an opportunity for them to educate and perhaps help someone.
Will they step up and take it?
