Who didn’t go to treatment?

I’m finishing up on entering all the data I need in order to start crunching numbers and finding statistics and patterns, which I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I want to verify who ended up not going to treatment at all and I thought you might be able to help, instead of me having to go back and re-watch episodes.

Here are all the addicts I know of who did NOT attend treatment. If they didn’t attend treatment right after the intervention but the followup said they eventually went, they shouldn’t be on this list. These are only the folks who, at the end of the episode, still had not agreed to treatment and never went as far as we know.

POLL FINAL ROUND: Who Do You Most Want To See A Followup On?

Ok folks, we made it to the final round. Thanks to everyone who voted in all the previous rounds. Now it’s time to pick from the Top 2 vote-getters from each poll. So, who would you most like to see in a followup episode (or at least a legacy Skype update)? The winner will receive, well… bragging rights I guess? But who knows, maybe the producers will find this and take it into consideration when they’re doing followup calls.  Your vote could make the difference!

Poll: The Heroin Triangle Season – Yay or Nay?

The 18th season of Intervention was an interesting departure for the show. Instead of focusing on a single family and intervention, the crew followed a small group of addicts and their families from one community spanning over 6 episodes.  There were still frustrated families, tragic endings, and hopeful futures just like every season, but the different format allowed for some new perspectives, like a deeper dive into the effects of a drug epidemic at the hyper local level, while also sacrificing some of the elements that made the show what it is, such as in-depth individual back stories. There’s been some good discussion about the merits and disappointments of the season right here, but I’m wondering in general how y’all felt about the format.  Feel free to elaborate on your thoughts in the comments.

Poll: Who Do You Want To See A Followup On? Part 5

Ok so they don’t do whole followup episodes anymore unfortunately, but they do the Skype “Legacy” updates.  So let’s say we have a say in who Intervention reaches out to next. Who do you most hope to see on a future Legacy segment?

This will be done in several parts so that there aren’t too many to choose from.  I couldn’t include every single person that’s ever been on the show, so I had to narrow it down. The people who will be listed in these polls will have 1) not already had a follow up episode or Legacy update  2) have not provided updates here (meaning we know how they’re doing based on their comments) and 3) are the ones who have gotten at least a few “where are they now, does anyone have an update” comments.

If there’s someone listed here that DOESN’T meet those qualifications, just assume that I know that and I included them for a reason.

Vote!

Sarah
Age: Early 20’s
Location: Trenton, Ontario, Canada
Addiction: Alcohol

What’s Memorable:  Seeing someone as young and bright as Sarah waste away drunk in a crappy motel room is always so sad. The followup was fantastic, so glad she was able to get it together.

Update January 19, 2018

Happy 2018! Just a couple of quick things…

  1. You may have noticed that there’s a delay in your browser when you try to access this site. Sorry about that. It’s because I’m under DDOS attack for some reason and so I have to route traffic through a service called Cloudflare in order to filter out the attack bots. I once tried to lower the filter a little bit to see if the attack was still happening, and it was. My hosting company immediately told me that if that level of traffic happens again they will kick me off of the server.  So I’m kind of a pickle.  I can’t take the filter down because I’ll get in trouble which means I can’t find out if the attack is still happening or not or figure out what to do about it. I don’t even know if the bots are coming for the actual domain name or the DNS, so I don’t know whether moving to another hosting company will work or not. Do any of you know enough about this stuff to give me some advice or help me work through it? Any suggestions welcome. My email is dizzy.buzzkill at gmail
  2. Today I am 49 days sober. 1 month 2 weeks 5 days without drinking. I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to do this again, but here I am and I feel good. Thought you’d want to know. 🙂

Season 18 – The Heroin Triangle

Official Synopsis: In a collection of affluent suburban communities north of Atlanta called “The Heroin Triangle” the rise of the nation’s opioid crisis, from prescription pills to full-blown heroin epidemic, is documented through city officials, community leaders, and addicts themselves. Tiffany and Billy, a volatile couple living out of their car, receive a sizable tax return that sets them up to score a large of amount of heroin. Their addiction threatens to destroy the family they’re building. As a homeless and gay man, Tracey faces unique challenges as he spends his days hopping busses and hiding out in bathrooms stalls shooting heroin. Zac’s a free-spirit but his musical gifts are undermined by his crippling heroin addiction. Interventionist Heather Hayes enlists the help of her colleague Donna Chavous to further investigate the city’s handling of the epidemic.

Note: Because this season isn’t structured the same at all – episodes follow several different people, there’s no real back story on the addicts, and there won’t necessarily be an intervention each episode – I’m just posting this and y’all can comment on the episodes (there are only 6 episodes anyway) or the season as a whole here.  I’m interested to know what you guys think of what they’re doing this season. It’s an interesting departure for sure.

Vote! This is PART 4, Seasons 9-10.  PART 1 is herePART 2 is here, PART 3 is here.

Also hey, I figured out how to make each choice clickable so you can go to the episode page in a new tab if you don’t remember who it is. I’m so clever!
