John Season 2 episode 9

John
Age: 33
Location: Boston
Addiction: Alcohol, cocaine, crack

Update: John sent me an email – he’s doing really well. He’s been sober since his intervention almost 9 years ago and is married with a son. He even gives talks at local high schools, sharing his story in the hopes it can help students. Congratulations for all you’ve accomplished in your sobriety John, and thanks for keeping us updated.

Official synopsis:  At 33, all John can see is the loss in his life. His mother died when he was 12. This year, he lost his sister, his cousin and his best friend. His only escape from it all is in his addiction to crack and alcohol, an addiction that has already come close to taking his life. His family and friends cannot imagine losing someone else. Their only hope is an intervention and the possibility that John will seek treatment.

Original Air Date: July 2006
Interventionist: Jeff

    • I’m glad they followed up with John. That was hard to watch, but I had a feeling he would stay sober!

      On a lighter note…is it just me, or does John kinda look like Bob Saget?
