I love these programs even though they can be tough to watch at times. I am a recovering alcoholic myself and have a son that's an addict. Even though, I have a counseling degree and am in recovery myself... I feel I'm learning something new all the time from this reality show.

Man this show is depressing, but I keep watching it. The way this seasons episodes open is kind of lame, but the featured people are interesting.

I think these real life stories about the consequences of drug and alcohol abuse should be viewed and discussed by parents and their children. They are graphic and intense, but they give a realistic account of what abuse means and how it destroys a person both physically and mentally. These stories also show the effects on the family and friends.

This is my go to show now. I love Intervention. It's always nice to see the people get clean and it's sad when they won't go to treatment. Don't take the interventions too seriously. They're actually more harmful to the families due to the way they're run. It's very stressful and puts a ton of pressure on the families. Many of the people end up saying no or running off, which I suppose makes good tv. But whatever, the show helps some people, so I guess it's a good thing.
Entertainment wise, they've got me hooked, or could you say, addicted?

As a former alcoholic now sober for 7+ years, these episodes always serve as a good warning of what the dark times were like, and how easy it is to fall down that slippery slope if you aren't vigilant - not only during that hard times, but especially during the good times.

A colleague asked that I view this season because there is an overlap in our specific medical interests. With heroine addiction as in other types of substance abuse, there is decreased ability in the body's immune system and infectious disease becomes more difficult to treat. I very much doubt that I would be able to accomplish what she does with interventions. There seems to be so much darkness before there can be light again . . . if death doesn't intervene! Yes, I do understand addiction and the absolute need for intervention and treatment. Diagnosing an infectious disease process for substance abusers requires treating both conditions . . . it's the same body/mind. It was past difficult to observe that one intervention and this is certainly an accurate portrayal of the 'real' one.

Recommended? That's a good question that I don't have a glib answer for . . . those considering an intervention? Substance abusers? Those interested in human behavior? Perhaps one episode if you are interested in finding a few answers to your own questions.

The above was my review for Season 10. All of these episodes present variations of the 'typical' profile of substance abusers. This is not to negate an individuals circumstances but to emphasize their personalities. There is an accurate portrayal of dysfunction within the family unit and other relationships. The multiple substances of choice offer a wide spectrum and an accurate description of the medical/mental consequences.

I've viewed 'Chasing The White Dragon,' 'The Global Addiction,' 'Afghanistan: The Opium Trail,' and 'One Man's Seduction.' If you have an interest in grower to user, 'The Global Addiction' is a 30 min production by ABC Australia, that is well narrated and reasonably accurate.

Being a recovering alcoholic and having gone to treatment at Cumberland Heights here in TN, I will have been sober fourteen years in June. I got frustrated early on going to meetings as they only talked about what happened during the glory days of using. Intervention is a wonderful outlet for me in lieu of a meeting. While I chose to go to rehab on my own, it's so helpful to have a show with this formula that involves the families of the alcoholics and addicts, the struggle they face using and the choice to get better or not and finally the follow up to know if they are having success or not with the treatment. This show is empowering, sad, optimistic, and always engaging. I have shed many tears watching this show both in elation of success and in disappointment that some just can't make it through treatment or follow through after treatment. Reality doesn't always provide a happy ending, know that! If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, this show is for you. If you've ever been curious how addiction affects normal, everyday people and their families, this show is for you. I promise after one or two episodes you will be hooked. Every episode will provide hope and tools to help anyone you might now struggling with the baffling addiction to drugs and alcoholism. You think you know but you don't and can't until you experience it first hand. That's the goal of this show I think. It's filmed and edited with great care to the subject of each episode to never just film for ratings but rather provide the necessary portrait of real life addiction. It isn't sugarcoated. It isn't easy but it's real!

Rainbow flag men and boys have so many barriers and biases to face. Richard dealt with his dear sister's death and being molested for years without others knowing. He's had it tough, but he still ends up being a jerk here.

He kinda reminded me of Andy Bell of Erasure, except I have nothing but respect for Mr. Bell. Richard did some activist/non-profit work; I'm guessing he had anti-drug resources that he didn't bother to access. Yes, his brother is/was homophobic, but he seemed more understanding of Richard than the other way around. He is sucking his mother dry of money. The work never mentions HIV/AIDS, but he engaged in lots of activities that I would imagine could put him in great risk.

My favorite part of any "Intervention" episode is when the addicted person walks into the hotel room and sees their loved ones. Richard wasn't even brave enough to stay. You never really see him for the rest of the episode.

The episode ends by saying Richard is no longer on drugs. I highly doubt that. He just seemed very nasty and abusive. I can't imagine him staying sober. He really needs to do nicer things so he can get some good Karma. Otherwise, he's in BIG, BIG trouble!
