This is officially the 100th episode produced by the show. It was originally slated to air as part of Season 7, but my guess would be that it would make for some commercials announcing the 100th episode for AETV to promote the 8th season. The Allison/Gabe Follow Up is actually the 101th Episode produced.
This episode is actually the 101th episode produced by the show. It was aired before "Linda" the 100th episode to coordinate the 8th season premiere.
At the pre-intervention meeting, Gabe gets the hint something is up because it's weird that all 5 siblings and parents are not answering their cell phones and that no one is at home. The next day, Gabe won't leave his house to get to the intervention. Candy suggests heading over to his house in an interesting twist.
Candy has a lot in common with Gabe, which is why she took the chance to do this intervention. Candy was also adopted.
Treatment Centers and Updates: Casie is sent to Summer House for detox, then to C.A.R.E. in North Palm Beach, Florida. John attempts a stay at A Sober Way Home. John says they got engaged the night before the intervention. They both dropped out a month after entering treatment and moved back in with each other. Hank and Donna (Casie's parents) completed a treatment as well at the Betty Ford Center. They have remained sober since September 2008.
Ken states his hardest interventions were for Christy and Chucky. Jeff states Dillon was difficult, but probably not his most difficult. Candy states that the most difficult intervention for her was for Leslie because of the emotional toll.
Jeff, Candy, and Ken have all struggled with their own addictions.
Treatment Centers and Updates:
Allison is admitted to Newport Hospital for psychiatric evaluation. They did release her after 7 hours. The next day, Jeff did give her a final offer of treatment, which Allison did accept. She goes to New Seasons Recovery Systems in Port Hueneme, California. Two months later, she has been sober for 65 days. She continued staying at New Seasons. According to the episode, she has been sober since May 2008.
Allison is extremely resistant to the intervention. After she walks out of the hotel, Allison's sister tries desperately to get through to her, but she still walks away to her home. She even buys duster cans on the way home! An animal control officer and two police officer show up to her house as requested by her family. The police actually decide to take her in to the hospital, with force, handcuffing her. Allison becomes another one of the participants most protesting to an intervention.
This episode was nominated for Outstanding Cinematography For Reality Programming for the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards.
This is the second time a child under 18 attended the intervention. This is not usually permitted by interventionists.
This episode was the first time that the intervention was delayed for any reason, a court mandated treatment before the intervention, and treatment for the family was discussed in detail.
While other participants have threatened suicide during filming or have been taken to the emergency room, this is the first time the subject actually attepted suicide.
This is the second time a participant has found out that they are on the show, Intervention. This time she overheard some of her nurses talking about it.
In this episode, the local police department for the small town is the major force behind Dillon's agreement for treatment. After one of the officers explains to Dillon that he could go to jail for things "seen and dismissed" and pleads him to go, Dillon does agree. Jeff thanks both of the officers for their pivotal position they played in the Intervention that day.
This is the first episode where the addict found out about the intervention in advance.
This is the second time the producers have given a second chance to the participant.
This is the first episode where someone close to the subject dies: Lauren's friend Dea. The episode was dedicated to her.
This is the first episode in the series where a child under 18 attended the actual intervention.
Probably the most violent or protesting intervention. Cristy's father manages to get through to her though, and his reasoning is the only way she later agrees to treatment.
