A third-generation addict is on a one-way path to self-destruction, continuing a tragic family history of substance abuse.
- Reality TV at its most unvarnished and gripping.
- Watch as addicts and their families confront the compulsions that are destroying their lives.
- Chuckie was literally born addicted to heroin. Can he overcome this terrible heritage?
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.
Joy to the World may have been his father's biggest hit, but there has been little joy in Chuckie's disastrous life. With drugs all around him - even in his own blood - from the moment of birth, Chuckie at 28 is, as his brother puts it, the dictionary definition of addiction.
He is now the last remnant of his family's sad legacy, the only one still unable to get clean. In a desperate effort to save Chuckie and redeem their family, his loved ones set out to undo decades of damage with an INTERVENTION.
Is there still time for Chuckie to fulfill any of his great promise? Is the family too late?
