Real talk coming now from Penny-Lee Oshiro's son. This is a great inspiring Intervention episode for a family's struggle with addiction in hopes of walking to a brighter future together. Disclaimer: If you don't want
me to ruin the episode ending, please move on and read this update later. Thank you.

Penny-lee is from Hawai'i (Oahu). She has four children, a husband (my step father: Craig Oshiro), and was an alcoholic. Penny's first husband chose to live another lifestyle, and their sons chose/was-told to live with their biological father at a teenage age. This is a good reason that enhanced & enraged the alcoholic in Penny.

My mother has showed me, our family & friends, and the world that anyone can fight the disease of addicition called alcoholism. I personally was leading down a very similar path to my mom's alcoholism, and I'm glad that I was able to walk to the light of sobriety myself, thank you Mom!

I personally researched my family ancestry, and my family is a fifth-generation Hawaiian. My mom is 50% Hawaiian (her dad is 100% hawaiian, our family comes from the biblical name: Hezekaiah (Hawaiian Last Name: Hekekia)), and the other 50% is mixed from her Mom (Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese, Scottish, English, Irish, Spanish, and American Indian).

Update:
My family is doing better, thank you so much to Intervention & Bay Recovery! She is still going strong and has been sober since March 31, 2011. Wonderful Job Mommy!

Thank you for taking the time to read this comment, I hope you enjoyed the Intervention episode (it is what it is, but we can move to a brighter future together always!), Take care, and God bless!

Its a shame they cancelled this show. I'd love them to make a "where are they now" follow up of all the people they have intervented in the past 10 years.

LaTisha kinda reminds me of a non-drug-taking aunt I have. I actually think many African-American viewers will feel like they have a LaTisha in their extended families. Still, she was a mess! I usually empathize with the subjects on this program, but she pushed my buttons terribly.

LaTisha says something to the effect of, "Tisha loves Tisha!" She has a very high esteem, regardless of drugs or prostitution. Good for her, but the other stuff is a problem. Not only did LaTisha say she has a favorite of her 3 children, but she said all parents have favorites. She implies that she wished she never had her youngest daughter, but Miss 'Tisha, your daughter didn't ask to be born! That's your fault she's here! When I think about her daughter's knowing her mother said with delight that she was unwanted, that will haunt her for the rest of her life. Luckily, LaTisha's youngest daughter was excelling despite her mother, and most definitely not because of it.

I sometimes have an Afrocentric perspective. There was a commercial that ran in the late 1980s saying drugs were the new slavery. Why didn't a relative confront LaTisha with that? LaTisha was embarrassing Black women and she never thinks about the damaging image she created. Her antics will have a crippling and rippling effect that really brings our people down.

The text at the end suggests LaTisha was not a success story. I won't give the details, but I could predict it. She hadn't hit rock-bottom. She was too evil and ornery; she hasn't learned about the power of Karma yet!

I have to say, I do like this show. However, as an addict in recovery, I need to voice my opinion. I struggled with a heroin addiction for years. Getting on methadone saved my life. I have an issue with how this show depicted methadone treatment as an 'addiction'. If someone is on methadone, this DOES NOT mean they are in active addiction. While on methadone (taken only as prescribed and in conjunction with on-site therapy) I have been raising my son as a single mom. He is active in dance, soccer and is in the best private school in the city. I have been working and finished my degree in Psychology. I'm currently in grad. school and interning as a Marriage and Family Therapist. There are other clients on methadone that abuse it and combine it with other drugs...that does not mean that everyone on methadone does this. I needed to put this out there because Intervention had misinformation in regards to methadone. Thank you.

So sad that addiction takes over ones life the way it does. Not only does it affect the person, but the family is torn apart as well. This program goes step by step from their daily life, the affect on the family, then the intervention with the outcome.

People I know have lost two of their children to drugs and so many more are involved. So sad. The stories are intriguing but really sad. People #1 need to watch what they are doing in front of their kids and # 2 don't hesitate to intervene. The real secret is to smother your kids with love and guidance. Happiness is not dulling your senses to escape!

Real stories and not fake story lines. To see the rock bottom but people surviving, is incredible. Highly recommend to everyone.
