In INTERVENTION, people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. From compulsive gamblers to shopaholics, drug addicts to young people estranged from their families, INTERVENTION features real people at the breaking point as they are confronted by friends and family. In fly-on-the-wall style, INTERVENTION captures the drama as people grapple with their demons in an attempt to chart a course to recovery.
The solace John seeks in crack and booze is killing him. At 33, all he can see is the loss in his life. His mother died when he was 12. In the past year alone he's lost his sister, his cousin and his best friend. His only escape is crack and alcohol.
John has narrowly escaped death once, but his remaining loved ones fear his luck won't hold out. Will John be the next victim in the family's string of tragedies? Their only hope is an INTERVENTION and the possibility that John will seek treatment.
