Episode 11: Tommy

Season 1 Episode 11




Age: late 30’s?
Location: Big city in the South
Addicted to: Cocaine
What’s Memorable: This was a weird one. We find out very very little about Tommy’s history. We don’t see pictures of his life before he became a homeless coke addict. At no point in the episode does Tommy do drugs. We never see him trying to get it or after he’s gotten high. All we know is what he says things used to be like, and all we see is the apparent consequences of his addiction – a storage unit with only a few things left, sleeping on the roofs of his friends’ condos, taking advantage of free hotel breakfasts, riding around on his bike.

Official synopsis:  Tommy, who quit his executive job and sold his Lexus, retirement plan, and million-dollar condo to sustain his cocaine habit.
Original Air Date: June 2005

Interventionist: Candy

Categories: Candy, Cocaine, Season 1

  1. Honestly, one of the most bizarre ones I’ve seen. Wondered what happened to him.

  2. Here’s Tommy’s facebook. He commented on the Intervention site, and him and his girlfriend said that he is still sober 7 years later.

  4. I just watched his episode. I wonder what ever happened to him and I wonder how he got to the point he was at the time of filming. Like I wonder what events triggered his downward spiral.

  6. This episode seemed fake to me. Or rather Tommy’s part of this episode.

  8. His location was Dallas, TX. I recognized the skyline in a few shots, and recognized some buildings in Uptown and the Katy Trail.
