Episode Summary

EDIT
Ed, 53, and Bettina, 49, had a picture-perfect life, including three adoring kids, a dream home, sports cars, motorcycles, and a respected place in their church community. But six years ago, Ed made a bad career move and ended up unemployed. He and Bettina lost everything they had worked for. They began to drink, and quickly became alcoholics. Ed has been hospitalized for internal bleeding, and Bettina for withdrawals so excruciating she thought she was dying. Their children have begged them to stop drinking but they need an intervention now to help their parents. (as per AETV.com)moreless

  • Ed and Bettina - A love story

    9.0
    Ed and Bettina had a unique story of two individuals who were dedicated to each other, and had a profound love for each other and yet both also had a love for the bottle. It was hard to watch Ed who had been very successful in business, try to hold on to a job (and with it, it seemed, his dignity). At one point Bettina was speaking to the camera and saying that she was extremely drunk and yet thought she could appear sober - because she handled her liquor so well. That was sad.



    The saddest part was the impact that the disease was having on their three children, who were young adults. The youngest especially had put so much effort into looking after her parents, trying to keep them clean and both alive.



    At the end there was a moment when it looked as though having to go into treatment separately was a deal breaker for Ed. But in the end they went (Yay).moreless
