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.
These are the heart wrenching stories of two men from very different walks of life being destroyed by their addictions.
Antwahn had it made: a professional basketball career that took him around the world. But after a career-ending knee injury, he lost his footing and slid down a steep slope of crack cocaine addiction and homelessness. Now, at the age of 39, he is on the verge of complete annihilation, and INTERVENTION may be his only hope.
We also delve into the desperate existence of Billy, just 22 years old and already a ruined man. His methadone binges and pot addiction are only the tip of his substance-abuse iceberg. Billy steals his mother's Xanax, injects Ambien and cocaine, and is one misstep away from plunging back into a deadly heroin habit. With a lineup like that, his mother can only pray that INTERVENTION holds the solution to his constellation of addictions.
It may not be a slam dunk, but INTERVENTION is certainly these addicts' last hope.
