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 Can Relate to the Addicts on This Show.

    Speaking from my own personal experience, I personaly think that this is an excellent. television program. It shows that there is help for addicts unable to brake their habits bythemselves. I used to be in group therapy, and I had met plenty of people like that myself. This show demonstrates real addicts, the hell they go through, the help they receive, and their recoveries. It also inspires addicts who are watching to confront their own personal demons before it is too late. I must reccomend this show to addicts, their families, and therapists. I give it a 10 with pleasure.moreless
  • This show reveals the ugly truth about addiction.

    10
    As a former interventionee, I am now sober for 2 years. My family and doctors did an intervention on me while I was stuck in the hospital due to an overdose on heroin and cocaine. And I cannot tell you how close it hits to home every time I watch Intervention. Most people say its a show that's hard to watch but trust me, in real life its even worse, nobody can imagine the pain the addict and family go through during an addiction. And the chance of a full recovery is slim to none. Its really very very sad and I'm so grateful I've made it this far, especially with the support of my family and friends. I still watch this show to remind me of where I don't ever want to be again, because sometimes we forget. My heart goes out to the addicts and their families... Good luck to everyone and just stay strong... Life is worth it.moreless
