Show Summary

INTERVENTION profiles people who are losing their battle with their addictions, and whose friends and families feel the only remaining option is to hold an intervention. Each documentary follows the lives of these addicts, taking an unflinching look at the impact of their addictions on their everyday lives, all the while the addicts are unaware that an intervention is being planned. Each airing ends with the friends, family and a professional interventionist urging the addict to get treatment. If the individual should choose treatment, the addict immediately enters a widely respected treatment facility.

    I have a very close friend who has always struggled with drug addiction. She has suffered a lot and shows visible signs of PTSD, as she has a laundry list of awful things that have happened in her life... Sexual and physical abusd, Abusive relationships, unhealthy relationship with parents, Father is also an addict and is dying from cancer... She gave a child up for adoption against her will... And lost her two young boys recently because of her drug use, poor judgement and her refusal to take responsibility. I understand it is a disease... This is why I am writing. No one in her family is willing to help her get clean... They enable her to stay sick and they are helping to kill her. My friends name is Love... Can u believe it? It's very sad... The whole family is sick. Her brother and one sister are addicts, an alcoholic niece and another sister who is oblivious. She's going to die... She needs help!!! She doesn't really care what drug it is.... But currently she prefers CRACK!!!! She has been to free rehabs, three times to be exact, but they haven't helped... She really needs a good facility that will help her deal with the traumatic past she struggles with!! Please... If she is doesn't get help soon she won't make it to the end of this year.

    I watch the show and I wish I could get the help these people are getting. I called the number. They gave me numbers for places I could go to and get help. I know my story would help a lot of people out there. It is very true and nasty!!! I need help bad. I've been in 4 treatment centers but, they only let me stay for 11 days because I can't afford anything more. I'm 43 and have mental health issues which is a major part of my drinking. My family no longer trusts me. My friends are all living a wonderful life. I'm empty and alone! I just recently got sent to the hospital for trying to take my life with a bottle of pills. I never thought I would do that. I've been very self destructive on other drugs but they are no longer a part of my life. I'm too paranoid for that. My mind is a mess!!! I just want a knew start!!! I really need help.moreless

    My situation is very different than the typical addict. I am 39 years old. I am using meth, marijuana and have had used cocaine. I also binge drink alcohol. I wan't raised around drugs or anything like that. My parents were honest good people. I wathced a few of the tv episodes and have done some research on how the whole intervention process works. I see the families and the friends read how they feel and give an ultimatum to get treatment. one out of every ten actually remains sober when they finish rehab. My parents are dead, the rest I am estranged from. The friends I do have are addicts too. I don't have any children, nor will I ever get to have due to being barron from Diabetes. I am single. To have an intervention is an act of love, said the counselor on tonights show. That the real pain is on the family. The subjects that I have seen, pan handle , steal, lie, and cheat to get the money for the substances that they want. I don't have to do that. All I have to do is go to the atm. I live in a nice studio apartment, I have nice things. I am able to afford my habits, and still go into any store and buy what ever I want. The thing that really bothers me is that I don't have any family to give me the act of love/intervention. Nobody is there to care enough to try to do an intervention. I use drugs because I LIKE THEM! I like the way they make me feel. I'm literally not hurting anyone, theres no one there for me to hurt. Im hurting myself I guess. I guess I'm kind of jealeous of the people on the show. I wish that I had a family that gave a damn. It's hard when you have nobody.moreless
  • will it ever get better?

    my 19 yr old daughter is a IV Herion addict. The Apple does not fall far from the tree since I spent a huge ,chunk of her life in active addiction. Therefore I did most if not all of my parenting out of guilt which only did harm to her. My family has tried many things, but they learned from me that you can't help an addict unless they want to be helped. We are losing her fast and we need help! She already has a felony drug sales charge that will never come off her record. People tell me that she is constantly on the brink of overdose. My mother brought her back with CPR a few years ago and she spent 5 days in ICU. It was all a big joke to her. Please we are dezperate! Thanks Erin Hutchinson

    My son's been through horrific, traumatic events during his childhood and after the killing of his father by the police in 2006 he's been killing himself slowly with heroin and abusing me, his mother. I know I should have found a way to save him , he is my life. I failed him, his dad failed him, a charmed little boy has been transformed into someone I don't know and resent but love with all of me.moreless
