    Saw this weekend’s newest episode where Felix has fully transitioned. I was pretty shocked. He looks amazing!

  2. Mixte

    Holy shit, I remember this episode from when it aired, and I also just saw his followup. Felix is handsome as hell! And Margo is cute as a button. I really hope this gives other young trans addicts hope; you can get through it and life can be better than you can dare to imagine.

  3. Jenn

    As soon as I saw Felix pop up to the screen during the follow up I felt so happy for him. So glad you are continuing to stay sober and be who you are. Congrats

  4. Melanie P.

    All the best to you in the future Felix! Happy days and happy ways to you!

    How come this episode isn’t available? Anyone have a link?

    1. Galusha

      It’s not available because Austin (the other addict in the episode) died. Whenever an addict dies A&E permanently pulls the episode.

      1. Dizzy

        This is mostly true, but there are a couple of episodes that are still available on A&E site (Brian, Ben), not sure why. Maybe A&E don’t know they’ve died? And a bunch of them can be purchased or streamed on Amazon, so I know they haven’t been pulled from everywhere yet. But with the Michelle/Austin one, yeah it does look like it’s unavailable on any site right now. It might also be because Felix is not out about being trans in his current everyday life and doesn’t want that pre-transition episode out there.

      2. Stefan

        I believe it’s still available on Xfinity, in addition to (for now) Youtube.

      3. Stefan

        I doubt that’s true about Felix since he filmed the Legacy update.

      4. Luna

        Also the rocky episode is still on there

      It’s probably clear, but just so there is no confusion when searching for the video, just add the number to the end of “ovisnost o drogama” and you’ll find the episode you want to watch.

  7. Tazz

    Nice! I’ve been checking those out for some time now.
    You can also search narkomani u americi on the same site, and a few more will pop up. Weird how that is lol.

    I didn’t think her wife left her because she wanted to be a man. I thought she left because she was being made to be this prim and proper house wife. She was to stay home and cook and clean and be the homemaker, and that wasnt what she wanted but was expected to be. Regardless, I’m glad s/he was able to get clean and live life!

    1. Dizzy

      I agree with you on this, the synopsis has it wrong.

  9. Genevieve

    I watched this and then the follow up and I am crying happy tears.
    I am so happy for y’all living your best lives.

    Am I allowed to have an OTP for this show??
    My Intervention OneTruePairing is totally Felix and Margot.
    Can y’all have some social media where I can watch y’all grow old and be happy in life together? because geez!!

    1. Camila

      Im so happy for him. He seemed so happy and great and healthy. Hope he stays like this forever. He made it <3

    I was really happy to see felix’s mom so openly accept his transition it made me so happy that his mother is so supportive truly amazing she is amazing and Felix seemed like a great person to know just struggling with his identity issues. I’m glad he was able to get help in all the ways he needed to become who he is.
