Millions of Americans struggle with addiction. Most need help to stop. In this powerful and gripping television series, people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. From compulsive gamblers to shopaholics to drug addicts, INTERVENTION™ profiles people whose dependencies or compulsive behaviors have brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each episode in the series ends with a surprise intervention staged by the family and friends of real people at their breaking point. They'll be offered a second chance. But will they take it?
Tammi, 45, an alcoholic, grew up in a family of six girls and is the daughter of a dentist and a medical technician. Her sisters say of their background, "We were from a very good family. We were raised with good values, upper-middle class, all private Catholic schools... We had golf lessons, tennis lessons, swim lessons, all of it."
After his father's death in 2001 Daniel's escalating dependence on methamphetamine and marijuana materialized to his mother Joy. She sought help in the form of religious based organizations that offered counseling for her son. Daniel was unresponsive, sinking deeper into addiction.
Are interventions their only hope?
