  4. After searching for details on Kristen’s follow up, I found this on wikipedia: “Kristen relapsed several times but got sober in 2007. She gave birth to a son in October 2006 and regained custody of her daughter Sadie in 2008.”

  5. Why aren’t all the people on this website updated with current status?
    Give me there numbers I’ll call.
    I’m a recovered addict/alcoholic, I love it when people ask if I’m clean & sober. But they don’t have to ask because of the joy I display.
    Thank God for Intervention.

  6. This is one of the most powerful episodes I’ve ever seen. I would love to know how she’s doing now, and how Sadie is as well.

  9. Her goals were to “become a lady and become a productive member of society.” This episode always stayed with me. I wonder if she is out in the world with her child(ren?) living her goals? She seemed to have such a hard life. I wanted her to be happy. Would love an update.
