Episode 102: Jennifer

Season 7 Episode 3

Jennifer
Age: 22
Location: Mesa, Arizona
Addiction: Alcohol
What’s memorable: I’d like to have sympathy for Jennifer, she’s been through a lot, but she’s got such a bad attitude and is so ungrateful and annoying, it’s pretty hard. It’s interesting how she believes that drinking alone is a sign of alcoholism, so she drags her reluctant friends around with her while she drinks. Also, her obsession with parties and how she goes to random parties that she finds on MySpace and gets wasted. Sketchball.

Update: Looks like Jennifer is doing pretty well. Newspaper article.

Official Synopsis: Once an effervescent, beautiful young woman, Jennifer was considered a genius by her teachers and was the pride and joy of her parents. But at age 17, Jennifer was involved in a car accident that caused a brain injury and kidney damage. Jennifer survived, but only three days after she left the hospital another family car accident ended in a fatality. Jennifer turned to drugs and alcohol to cope and now spends her days searching for parties or drinking companions. Her parents know that only an intervention can save her.

Original Air Date: December 2009

Interventionist: Jeff

  3. This intervention was CRINGE-worthy! The friend telling the story of Jennifer getting so drunk at the friend’s graduation party that she was half naked messing around with some guy on the lawn?? Then, even WORSE, is when she says to her day (her DAD!) that she “needs sex”. GAH!

  4. Unfortunately she seems highly interested in/involved with alcohol still based off of the pictures with quotes she posted on her facebook. She seems “happy’ with her alcohol use, poking fun at it on her page. I’m really praying for her and her family that has already suffered a lot.

  5. I saw this episode a long time ago and it always stuck with me. I have to agree with everything that Dizzy said about Jennifer. She is one of my least favorite addicts profiled on this show. And that family is such a wreck. When her mother says she thinks the devil has been replaced with Jennifer; did anyone else find that disturbing? Like, she literally believes it’s SATAN that is possessing her daughter. I don’t know why I found her Christian family to be so creepy. Probably because they have not even BEGUN to heal from the loss of their son, and their grief mixed with their unwavering Christian values is just unsettling to watch.

  6. Sadly, I don’t think Jennifer is clean. If you look through her Facebook page that’s linked above it’s pretty sad. She had a go-fundme page up which as since been taken down. Her mother and friends posted comments on it telling her she needs to get it together and get a job. She said she was living in a trailer park with friends. She seems to be in a pretty bad relationship too. The guy that I assume is/was her boyfriend posts mean comments and memes to her page. It all just pretty sad. :/
