    Very disappointed to find out Intervention has been cancelled. I too, cannot stand the DD people. I have to change the channel when the advertisements for their show come on. Despicable Duck Dynasty. Now they can be Triple D's not Double!

Was there anyone ever on the show who could have maintained their lifestyle if they weren't supported and enabled by their family? It's so bizarre to me. That caused me to stop watching some time ago.
    Couldn't agree more. There is a saying about run-aways...something like they wouldn't leave if they didn't have something to run from. My humble opinion is that people who abuse drugs and alcohol are run-aways from life. 9.9 times out of 10, they are running from something in their families/friends.

    Another saying: "treat the source". It was very frustrating for me that the families/friends weren't brought into the discussions in more meaningful ways. Maybe they were during treatment or something, but I honestly think the show would have been more helpful if its focus was put more heavily on the families/friends.

    Watched it! So happy it's back!

    Katie! She looked FABULOUS after rehab BUT then she relapsed.
    Her family wants nothing more to do with her.

    I also watched the episode before that! Wow so many have done so well!

    I loved that episode where they revisited a lot of old stories and saw how they were doing today. Also interesting to hear some of the producers talk about the ethics they follow when filming and how they are careful not to interfere unless they see a really dangerous situation.

    I used to watch this show, but I grew so frustrated when it appeared that the majority of the addicts could only live the way they did because their family supported them and enabled the behavior. It's difficult to see how the family feeds their need to feel better about themselves instead of cutting of the support. I have a family member who is currently in recovery. Until they seek rehab, it really is a horrible experience. Seeing the little children who are involved, is just heartbreaking.

    I can't tell you over the years how many times I've had to tell families handing over the loved wants wanting everyone to fix them that a substantial part of the problem is those family members who won't stop enabling. That all the fixing doesn't matter if they are surrounded by people who won't say no. I think it's a failing of many accessible treatment programs (as in for the normal income person or low income person) that there isn't a more intensive family counseling part of that. But I know billable hours plays heavily into that. I've completely turned my back on numerous people in my life who just couldn't stop using for whatever reason. It's heart wrenching especially when you know what the inevitable end is going to be.

    Re: Intervention (A&E)

    Let's get this thread back to the top! Intervention has been brought back by A&E and I love this show. I try to guess if the addict will stay in treatment and then return to normal life and stay sober. It seems that the most drug or alcohol obsessed person is the one to make it.

    I was in a alcohol treatment center for the ever so famous thirty days a while ago - so I have an interested eye in these subjects! Yes family members are pretty guilty themselves of enabling (I did not have that, and that is one reason I can stay clean of drugs and drink.) It is just so sad to see these young folks with so much promise choose heroin over a clean and successful life.

    Intervention rocks! (And no, I did not experience an intervention!)

    I love this show ... ugh, but I just forget to come here and post.

    I have watched every single season.

    I just watched with GINJER. YEAH. She ended up doing very well.

    It was a GREAT ending.
