What Are Some Movies About Losing Everything?

Question by Bob: What are some movies about losing everything?
I’m looking for some movies about someone who falls from grace and loses everything either due to drug addiction or substance abuse. Possibly about someone who starts drinking and beings to use other drugs until they’ve lost everything, or about someone successful whose life spirals out of control. If the movie ends with them finding religion that would be even better. I can’t seem to find anything quite what I’m looking for. The movie Cocaine Angel is about as close as I can get.
