Episode 145: Larry


Age: 32
Location: East Orange, New Jersey
Addiction: Alcohol (Brandy)
What’s memorable: The fact that he beats his wife when he’s drunk, and she’s so in love with him and won’t ever leave him.  And that failed intervention was a doozy. Too bad everyone couldn’t have gotten on board.

Official Synopsis:
Growing up with parents who demanded hard work, Larry rebelled with a life of crime. Today, he drinks a fifth of brandy a day even though he’s a spiritual man whose religion prohibits alcohol. Can an intervention save Larry from being ostracized by his spiritual community?
Original Air Date: July 2011
Interventionist: Jeff

Categories: Alcohol, Childhood Physical Abuse, Jeff, Season 10

  1. I hope Larry has gotten help. I was so sad he didn’t go and then the ending saying he’d be arrested. It breaks my heart. You’ve got to want to get clean though and he didn’t want it.

    • Larry apparently has reduced his drinking according to an update. But when you’re alcoholic you can’t really reduce it to get better. You have to stop drinking. So he’s probably not doing good.

    • Larry is in fact doing better because he is currently incarcerated and clean. His family feels he needed to hit rock bottom in order to come back victorious. His children are well and so is the rest of the family. Keep his sobriety in your prayers as alcoholism is a disease and we hope he’ll be released soon
