Intervention

Intervention



The documentary series Intervention profiles people who are losing the 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.

Daniel's mother the only family member that still regularly associates with him, pays for Daniel to live in a week-to-week motel room to keep him off the streets. Recently Daniel resumed a romantic relationship with Sarah, a fellow addict who supplies Daniel with alcohol and their booze--fueled nights escalate Daniel's already serious addiction to deadly lows. Now in a last ditch effort, his family comes together for an intervention.

This episode completely pissed me off.Rating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

Before they could even get into Brooke's addiction, I was absolutely disgusted by the way her insensitive and selfish family treated her. They were so quick to write this poor, delicate young lady off as a drug addict without taking an ounce of time to care for her or understand her illness. For example; when her mother claimed that she researched her disease and thought it to be Lyme instead of RA, I felt it was only a desperate attempt to try and find a "solution" to Brooke's illness rather then understand it. As if, *poof!* "here's a cure! Now get better so we can move on with our lives and not have to deal with this anymore." What a poor excuse for a mother. Read more
