Open Thread for Intervention Canada

I don’t profile the addicts of Intervention Canada but they’ve been airing them on LMN for a few months and I assume will continue to do so. Β If you have comments or questions about Canada episodes, feel free to leave them here since there is no other place to talk about them.

  1. Does anyone have an update on Meghan from Canada season 2. She was a heroine addict with a past eating disorder and major scars from cutting. Her story has really haunted me. I hope she’s okay!

    Posted by AK | February 10, 2015, 7:03 pm
    • I don’t have an update but I have to say that her mother left a really bad taste in my mouth! Never once did she say she was sorry for the trauma Meghan experienced. When she found out that it happened more than once over a 4 year period, she showed no emotion. I hope Meghan is doing well in spite of her mother.

      • Hello, Meghan is my cousin, we aren’t overly close as I am on her fathers side .. We haven’t heard much from her in the past few years but I do know she is alive and well. It really touches me that her story touched you as well. I do not know her mother at all never met her but all I can say is at lease her mom admitted to her mistakes… And admitted what she wished she had done different..

      • Megan passed away a few days ago from a suicide.

    • I know Meghan, and she is doing great. I spoke with her a few days ago. She is still clean and is living with a partner in Victoria.

  2. For anyone wondering if the episodes running on A&E provide the latest updates at the end…no. The Ryan repeat tonight ended with him being sober since 2010. He died last year.

    Posted by Dizzy | February 10, 2015, 9:01 pm
  3. Is anybody else annoyed with the “updates” at the end of these Canada episodes?? It’s like oh, they relapsed, that’s it, bye. Wth!! I was sooo hoping for the happy ending for Katie πŸ™

    • Just watched this episode and I was so pulling for her as well!

      Posted by Sw | February 12, 2015, 5:05 am
    • I had the same thought about Brad’s episode! They kept talking about how his daughter was getting married the following autumn, and at the end, “he left treatment, moved back into his trailer, relapsed, no one talks to him anymore kay episode over”

      The episodes themselves also seem to be a little more…rushed for content. Is it just me?

      Posted by X. | March 5, 2015, 11:46 pm
      • Me too! That’s actually what I was searching the web for when I found this thread. If anyone knows I’m sure there are tons of peeps wondering the same question. Sure hope he’s still doing great!

        Posted by Dawneen | August 28, 2015, 12:18 pm
      • I’m his daughter. For any updates contact me at frenchie418@hotmail.com

        He is clean.

  4. There was an episode a few weeks back that made me straight-up cry: Loren (and Christy). They presented it as just being about Loren, but Christy was in worse shape! Both were alcoholics who met in treatment and then moved in together.

    The intervention moved me to tears. They did a dual intervention on them at the same time and the families basically had never met before. But they came together to support each other. When I saw Loren’s father break down over hearing a letter written by Christy’s son, I completely lost it.

    Does anyone know how Loren and Christy are doing?

    Posted by Wenders | February 11, 2015, 7:34 pm
    • Christie & Loren update:

      Posted by Tom | February 19, 2015, 7:01 am
      • Tonight’s show about Loren made me cry. Not because of Loren or her addiction, but because of the clearly neglected dog. I hate when addicts have animals and make them suffer as much as the addict themselves. I found this absolutely disgusting and appalling!! Anybody know if the dog is okay? She should have been charged with animal cruelty!!! The proof is iron clad and the whole nation saw it.

    • Hi.. I can give you an update about brad.. I just had him working for me and sad to say not much has changed. Brad has cooperation issues. He wants it his way and only his way. It is very difficult to talk to him cuz he doesn’t want to listen and set in his way. He is amazing at what he does(work, setting stone etc) but he leaves the job site frequently to get 2 beers as he tells me.

      He is liked by the people in the community. He does get angry when things don’t go his way. He currently lives in a hotel. Working paycheck to paycheck. Never able to get ahead not because he can’t but because he is too hard headed.

      I had to fire him from my job because he just won’t listen. I hope the best for brad. Wish he is open to listening someday

  5. I want an update on Amie! She seemed like her upbringing was just absolutely chaotic- having so many kids and losing them. I hope she is well!

    Posted by Jenn | February 25, 2015, 10:47 am
    • There is an update on Amie and most of the other Intervention Canada addicts on the slice.ca/intervention website. (To get past the country code block canada uses I like to use a free app Hola.) You can rewatch all the Intervention Canada episodes they have posted as well. Good luck!

  6. I just watched an episode about “John,” who smokes crack and is a heroin addict. My TiVo cut off the last minute of the show, so I didn’t get to see any updates on him. All I know is that he went to rehab and had 57 days sober, then the show cuts off. Does anyone know if he relapsed or stayed sober? I would really appreciate any kind of update.

    Posted by Amy | March 10, 2015, 1:59 am
    • I literally just watched the John episode and I watched it all the way through and they never said. I’m curious about how he’s doing too.

      Posted by Alex | August 23, 2015, 6:09 pm
      • I see John about twice a month here in Victoria BC. I had such high hopes for him, he did so well on the show. I can’t say with 100 percent certainty that he is clean and I cant say with 100 percent certainty that he isn’t. He’s alive πŸ™‚

      • I know John well I used to hang out whit him when I was also and addict and a drug dealer , last I knew he was back In jail for theft , and other drug related crimes which is sad because he is a decent guy , I got out because I became pregnant and had great family support , me and my partner have been clean for 3 1/2 years now I still keep in touch. With a few ppl from our old life via facebook eat becuse some of them were and are decent ppl , and the news for John is nor so great ATM I do wish him well though

  7. I wonder if they will bring back Intervention Canada , too?

    Posted by Erica | March 23, 2015, 10:58 pm
    • I think that the Canadian version is done for good. However, there were several subjects from the U.S. version that were from Canada. In fact, the first Canadian subject instantly recognized General Jeff and said yes, even before his “I see a bunch of people who love you like crazy” speech! I would expect more stories from Canada on the U.S. version in the future.

  8. I was wondering if there’s any updates on Brad. He was a crack addict. So sad.

    Posted by janine | May 4, 2015, 3:01 pm
    • I would love to know what happend to Brad…..He really touched my heart. I hope he is alive and well and that he still can have a relationship with his daughter. I was a little ticked that the guy let him move back in the trailer and didn’t hold his bottom line! I get why people struggle with the bottom line though. It would be really hard. At least if Brad didn’t have the trailer he might think twice about where his life is at.

      Posted by Sig | February 4, 2017, 11:38 pm
  9. Did anyone watch the Andrew episode? I just watched on the app. Wow that one was tough. The relationship between Andrew and his mom was the most codependent I’ve seen, possibly. I felt so badly for him with everything he’d been through. Such a sweet guy struggling so hard and in so much pain. When he talked about not being brave enough to kill himself, my heart broke. Nobody deserves to be in that much pain.

    He looked so good in the follow up. Andrew, you are truly a beautiful soul and an inspiration.

    Posted by Kat R. | May 19, 2015, 8:31 pm
    • I watched the Andrew episode Sunday, I had seen it once before onYoutube I think, but this time was much more memorable. The love he had for his grandparents is what really got me. There was definitely a toxic relationship between him and his mom, and I was getting some vibes that the sister was (very rightfully) angry for that. I wish the entire family all the best, it seemed like Andrew and his mom both wanted to change for the better, just didn’t know how. I agree, he has a beautiful soul.

      Posted by Sara | May 20, 2015, 12:04 pm
      • I got the same vibes from his sister. I felt just as sad for her because she really did get the raw deal. People always assume the strong ones can just handle everything because they always do…but the pain is hidden on the inside.

        It was jarring to hear Leela talk about the kids’ wonderful childhood and then the next scene of Andrew recounting his own childhood and sobbing. Some serious denial from Leela there. Those kids had a rough time.

        Also wishing them all the best, including those sweet grandparents.

  10. Just watched Ziggy’s episode from 2012 rerun and cant find anything about how he is doing now anyone know? In Canada they run the U.S and Canadian versions together now. Thanks

    Posted by amber | October 29, 2015, 10:00 pm
    • I knew ziggi casually before his time on intervention and was shocked to see him on there. He wad always fun and funny and the life of the party. unfortunately ziggi has since passed. He died in December 2016 from a fentynal overdose. Addiction doesn’t define a person, I will remember him as I knew him. Fun, wacky, creative Ziggi. Rip.

    Posted by Violet | January 29, 2016, 12:43 pm
  14. I’ve actually seen Meaghan in Victoria! She looks great! My heart goes out to her..There’s a lot that happened to her that the show glazed over and I feel like a lot of Meaghan’s trust was betrayed. She is one strong girl, that’s for sure.

    I was wondering if anyone had an update on the couple from Sudbury?

    Posted by Krystal | January 31, 2016, 2:06 am
  15. Does anyone have an update on Travis? He was a young alcoholic who had been through trauma with his family. So sad, I could tell he was a good kid who just kept getting dealt bad hands. I have a couple friends he reminded me of. I could tell he was a good kid, hope he’s doing well!

    Posted by BobbyB | May 26, 2016, 12:28 am
    • I went to Intervention Canada’s FB page and he had commented on a picture of him, nothing major…just thanking people for their support. I went to his page; it’s pretty locked down, but he looks very healthy and happy in his photos. I’d guess he’s sober. It looks like he recently got married, too.

      Posted by E | September 1, 2016, 10:57 am
    • I talked to him online and he was doing great! Just got married and looked extremely well. My heart was so happy to see such good news!

  16. Hi I’m wondering if anyone has an update about Wesley from season 1? I hope he’s been able to make it and is doing well. Thanks.

  17. Megan’s story broke my heart how such a beautiful child could be so neglected by so many. I would like for her to know that nothing that has occurred in your life had anything to do with you but the people who were suppose to take care of you. Your powerful poems and songs were so beautifully written even though they came from such a dark place. I’ve watched these programs so many times but for some reason you were so different and special for some reason I can explain like your mother said your personality affects people in such a special way. I’m so hoping you are doing well and somehow after all your neglect and pain you find yourself in a save and loving place. Hopefully you will realize just how special you are and maybe take what you have experienced and maybe write sing or say something that will touch the hearts of others and let them know that what happened to you also happens to others and they and you a not alone. I must say if you had died from your demons this world would have lost a talent smart loving person. I so hope that your are doing well and accomplish everything you want in this world. Just know I’m on the other side of this country and with not even meeting you have made and impression on me that’s how special you are be brave and stay save thanks for saving yourself. I hope your poems and song are happier now.

  26. What happen to Robby the transgender from Canada???? I totally thought I was gonna see a happy ending

    Posted by Bianca Bautista | December 28, 2016, 10:19 pm
  27. Just watched the Robby episode from this most recent week. Does anybody have an update? That was the most heartbreaking episode I’ve seen in a LONG time – I really hope that if Janet or Robby read this they have found the happiness and peace they both deserve.

    Posted by PM | December 28, 2016, 10:48 pm
  28. Just watched an episode about Robby, an alcoholic struggling with gender identity issues. She said that she bought female hormones on the Internet and was subsequently referred to a psychiatrist, but I was left with the impression that she may have been self-medicating with the various hormones (and doses). My heart goes out to her and her family; they clearly love her and want to support her, but her case seemed so complicated and terribly fraught. According to the card at the end, she left treatment after 70 days and refused all communication with producers. I always root for everyone’s success, but Robby really moved me. If anyone has any update, I’d love to hear. Robby, Janet, and the entire family, you are all in my prayers. I’m pulling for you.

  34. Just watching the Robby episode…the family all seemed like good people grappling (Robby included), but the niece Shandell was a wonder. So much intelligence, tolerance, patience, and reason, and the only one who seemed to handle Robby’s transgenderism flawlessly.

    What an unsatisfying follow-up! I know Robby stopped communicating with the producers, but it’s strange they didn’t provide any details from or about the other family members. Really wishing them well…good people.

  35. Does anyone know how tammy and her family is? Season 14 i think. Her parents were getting help too I believe.

    Posted by Kim brede | January 6, 2017, 5:19 pm
  36. Why does Intervention Canada not really tell anything about what happens to the people afterwards like the US show does. I love the Canada shows but that seriously drives me crazy, I don’t even want to watch them because they only give one quick line that says they left treatment, but never any follow up and then there is NO WHERE to find out any updates. Please consider telling us what happens

    Posted by Carmie Cantu | January 6, 2017, 11:57 pm
    • I think they do it this way because the show airs not that long after it is filmed … so there really isn’t much more to tell. They need to go back a year or two later to see any real changes.

      Posted by Wanda | January 27, 2017, 2:57 pm
  37. Just watched the Ziggi episode and when I went online to find an update I found his obituary. He died last month and his brother set up a Gofundme account for his funeral.

    This man had a hard life and even though it was hard to overlook the fact that his friend’s 7 year old daughter could have died because of his habit, I kinda rooted for him to make it.

    RIP ZIggi.

    Posted by Linda | January 10, 2017, 2:39 pm
    • I watched his episode recently and even though I’m a veteran viewer of Intervention, I was particularly struck by Ziggi’s story. So incredibly sad for his family, he seemed like a truly unique soul. R.I.P.

      Posted by B | January 13, 2017, 7:47 pm
  38. Was wondering, did anyone see the Kathy episode? So tragic.. I grew to really care about her in the short time of the episode. I usually do.

  39. Tonight’s episode on Robbie (not the transgendered woman) was so heartbreaking. The most painful intervention I’ve ever Witnessed. I wish him the best of luck in life. He really deserves it.

    • Just watched this episode & cried I pray he’s doing well would love an update

      Posted by Reane | February 1, 2017, 4:25 pm
    • Oh my God. What is it about the Canadian addicts, their episodes are so traumatic (I’m thinking specifically of Andrew). Easy for me to say, but like AndrewGalloway said, where were the adults when this was going on??? None of this was his fault, nobody protected those kids. I feel like this episode barely scratched the surface of the pain Robbie was in. What a sweetheart. And an amazing transformation, almost unrecognizable! I’m sure he has so much work to do to get through all the trauma. Wishing him all the love and hugs in the world!

      Posted by Kat R. | February 2, 2017, 12:02 pm
      • The Canadian ones can be especially brutal! I remember Tammy (s2 episode 1) and her and her sisters’ backstory made me so upset I had to revisit the episode another time (they were so malnourished that her sister’s jaw became underdeveloped). Robbie’s was also unprecedentedly sad. I can’t imagine a parent using their own child as currency.

        Posted by Renee Sadie | February 2, 2017, 5:25 pm
    • I’ve been search for an update on Robbie too. Very moving story. Hoping he is still well

      Posted by Joy | February 13, 2017, 4:09 am
  40. I’m wondering about Robert. Praying that he’s still clean and living the great life his “mother” denied him. The episode first aired 07/31/16. The update at the end of the episode said clean since Sept. 2016 but don’t know if that’s current to my viewing.

    Posted by Brenda Johnson | February 1, 2017, 7:42 am
  41. What the fuck is wrong with people? How could a mother do this to her child? I am overwrought with anger and sadness. He is loved and worthy. Even if he thinks God has forsaken him, I haven’t. And I know there are many more that agree with me, than do not. He is loved. His sisters and father are here. Lord, please, help him. Help him find peace on this earthly plane. (And even if he doesn’t have a higher power, he is loved by many mortals 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 )

    Posted by TexasZ | February 5, 2017, 10:30 pm

    Posted by Lisha | February 12, 2017, 1:09 pm
  43. Yeah the Robbie episode touched me. He really had absolutely no chance to avoid becoming an addict and was neglected his whole life. Hope he makes it

    Posted by os75 | February 14, 2017, 9:42 pm
  44. Does anybody have an update on Robby (the transgender woman)? I really wish her the best, having a transgender partner mysel, I know how difficult transitioning can be for everybody. I would love to know how she’s doing.

  45. Is Jennifer from season 16 episode 1 alive? The mother who allowed her children to watch her shoot up, actually sitting next to her saying they know a monster … a “needle” monster.

    Disturbing. Prayers to her children and all they can not unsee. I wish them life far from addiction. As for her. No comment. 😩

    Posted by Toria | February 22, 2017, 7:14 pm
  46. I saw the “wes” episode 3 Season 1 just yesterday – the one where his Mom is clearly an addict herself and not really looking to help her young son. Anyone have any updates?
    One person asked on here but there are no replies.
