About Dizzy

I’m writing this because it occurred to me that you might like to who I am and why I’m so into this Intervention show that I made a friggin website about it. Here are my stories:

My mother was a heroin addict until she was 8 months pregnant with me. I was born a baby addicted to heroin. I’ve been told that if I ever do the drug I will be immediately addicted. This has adequately scared me away from ever doing heroin and I consider myself lucky.

After I was born my mom switched to alcohol and cocaine until she found meth in the late 80’s, which she continues to use today at age 65.

Last year I watched my father die of liver cancer from alcoholism.  I moved to his town to take care of him for the last 6 months of his life. I watched him continue to drink a case of beer everyday, even when he was yellow with jaundice and acted more like someone with advanced dementia than cancer. I was with him when he died.

Mother, father, brother, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. Addiction is literally in my blood. I was raised deep in it, I understand it more than I understand most things, and I experience it myself every day.  There is nothing that has affected my relationships and the choices I make more than addiction has.

I come from a small town in Washington State that is primarily known for producing Kurt Cobain. It’s also known for a dramatic de-population due to meth.  I could call my hometown dead, and a quick drive through downtown would make that point, but it’s not dead. It may be populated almost exclusively by meth heads and heroin addicts, but those people are alive and they’re my people. They’re addicts who need help. They are my family and old friends and the family and friends of all the people I know there.

I left there more than 20 years ago, when the meth epidemic was just starting to take hold. Since then, I’ve faced my own addiction battles. In my 20’s I developed the skill/affliction called functional alcoholism. I drank more than any person should ever drink while still making it to work everyday.  I thought that drunk me was the real me, my identity was contingent upon being drunk.  One especially hungover Saturday morning I had the epiphany that all the pain I was experiencing was simply the cost of drinking. I deserved it. This was the price I had to pay for drinking the way I did. And I wondered if what I got from drinking was worth the cost.

I voluntarily went into treatment on Christmas Eve in 2000 because my plan was to drink myself into oblivion for the holiday season.  I decided that rehab would be a better idea than drinking myself to death. It was a good decision.

I was sober for almost 7 years. I was fully in the program, had a sponsor, started meetings for women new to recovery, followed the steps to a tee.  I went back to school and got my degree, with honors. I wrote essays that won awards. I started making art that I enjoyed making and people enjoyed seeing. I knew that I didn’t need alcohol to be the best me.  I became that productive, smart, creative me that I always wanted to be. I was so far removed from who I thought I was when I was drinking and my identity was no longer contingent on being a drinker.  I had found a way, I was happy.

My mother told me she wanted to kick meth. I went up there to help her through withdrawals. We got through them, she started using again a few weeks later. As soon I got home from that trip I started thinking that drinking a cider would be no big deal, I could probably drink like a regular person now right?  I mean I hadn’t drank in almost 7 years, of course I could have a cider and it wouldn’t change anything. I would still be in recovery, it would just be a relapse. I would stop after that one cider. And if not, I wouldn’t drink the next day or anything. And if I did, I would never ever drink like I did before. I’d never be that person again. I had conquered alcoholism! This would not affect me. I get to be a regular person now.

So eight years ago I bought a 6-pack of cider. I haven’t stopped drinking since. I’m once again a functional alcoholic. I’m much better at it now, but I can’t deny the grip alcohol has on me.

I’ve been on most sides of addiction.  There’s a reason why I watch this show, there’s a reason why I feel the need to document it.  It’s not because I want to see people at their worst, exploited, semi-consciously performing for the reality cameras.  It’s because the addicts and the families on Intervention are people I strongly relate to in ways that I can’t even explain. It’s because Intervention is a show that actually saves those peoples’ lives.

I know that I’m not the only one with a complicated relationship to addiction that obsessively watches Intervention. That’s why this site exists.

  1. That was brave as hell of you, Dizzy. I hope someday you’re able to get the best of your demons. I have major respect for your courage.

  2. Wow, Dizzy. Hats off to you and thanks so much for sharing. Your story is incredibly touching, and I truly hope that one day you can find your way back to happiness. I have only been sober 3 1/2 years, and I know that voice will always be in the back of my head, telling me I can drink like a normal person. We are only human. YOU are only human. Thanks for all that you do. I truly believe that this site has helped many, and could be part of why Intervention was revived. You are a wonderful person 🙂

  3. Dear Dizzy,

    Talk about courage and success – You are amazing. With all the CRAP you got, you’ve made it this far by giving, giving, giving.

    You’ve been a care-taker to (probably) everyone in your life. It wasn’t your choice, it was put on you by people that only thought about themselves and you are so smart and energetic and GOOD, you were able to do it.

    I think that starting to drink again was a way to say, you cannot take care of everyone anymore. You must take care of yourself. Time to woman-up and put yourself first.

    Love is a verb. Only people in your life who love you are ones willing to do things for you. Cut out everyone who doesn’t and focus on yourself.

    You definitely deserve it.

    Sending you prayers,

  4. It sounds to me that you may be starting the road to recovery again, someday. I too, have addiction deep in my family blood. I was lucky enough to make it to a therapist to deal with PTSD before addiction ruined my life. Please know you are not alone in this. No matter the path you take, you have helped people by simply being honest and brave. Thank you.

  5. Awesome Dizzy! Your story is very similar to my own

  6. Dizzy,
    thank you for sharing your story with us. I have to admit, I wondered if you were just a big fan of the show or if you had a deeper connection with intervention, like most of us do. You are very brave for telling us about your addiction, and I hope that you can be okay again, and leave the alcohol behind when you are ready. I, too, struggle with addiction, as did my mother…in fact she is from and lives in Pt. Townsend, WA…which is also getting hit with the meth epidemic. I woke up in 2007 to my boyfriend,dead, of an overdose. I overdosed on oxycontin and xanax the next day, which landed me in the hospital. The fact that I used more than him, made me feel unbarably guilty-and still does. And since then I have just been trying to piece my life together. I now attend college, have a job, boyfriend of 4 years, and bought my grandpa’s house (he passed away from alcoholism related illness), but am still using. Like you, I am good at being a functional user. I don’t do the drugs I used to because everyone would be onto me.. and now I have no choice but to be responsible with money, so it’s a lot of weed and some pills, sometimes cocaine, but even after all this time…I still feel guilty everyday for not learning my lesson when he died. I hope that people like you and i can and will make it one day. Watching intervention and connecting with this community really helps, but I know one day I’ll have to get my shit together. Thank you again Dizzy for talking about your addiction, just know you inspired me to share my story…one that i haven’t spoken of since 2007. Sending you warm vibes and love, from Michelle. Stay strong girl.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your story, and for your support. I really appreciate knowing there are people like you out there who relate.

    • Dizzy & Chelle

      You both are brave as hell sharing your story of addiction hats off to you both, and everyone else. Does it really matter how long you’ve been sober? NO its the hard work you put into it that makes the world of difference. We all have a path in life we all have bumps in the road; Get back on that bike, get into the drivers seat and TRY again what’s the harm in all that? NOTHING!!!! Anyone that has an addiction can overcome this, I just prey that you all realize your worth it. You all have a choice and that choice is to never stop trying. I wish you all the very best I hope you all find your angel to guide and watch over you.

  7. Ps. If you ever need someone to chat with or rant to, clearly you have my email. Feel free to use it. Thanks again Dizzy for all the work you have put into this site! We all appreciate it.

  8. I was completely breathless, reading this. I just don’t know what to say. Dizzy you are amazing, resilient, self-aware, kind-hearted, and intelligent. Your story broke my heart but I have to say also that your writing is really compelling. Thank you for doing what you do…thank you for creating this space. Will be praying for you and all those here who have opened up and shared their stories.

  9. It restores my faith in humanity to see that all of the comments to your story are positive. Thank you for this site and thank you for sharing your story. I never wondered why you ran this site – I thought like me you connected to the show and cared about what happened to people afterwards. I grew up with a violent alcoholic and speed addicted mother who, unbeknownst to me, continued to take speed until shortly before she died at the age of 82. She was a stellar AA member for 37 years – everyones sponsor and nobody’s sponsee. When she was dying I found out that in 37 years of sitting in AA meetings she never told anyone about the horrible abuse that she inflicted upon me and allowed her boyfriends and friends to inflict upon me. I started this comment to talk about you and I see now that its all about my situation. I was scared straight at an early age when I became a black-out drinker. I cut myself off from addicts and the one criteria I had for a spouse was that they not be an addict. I will suffer from PTSD until the day I die (I’m 56) – I used to call it depression and anxiety and then I thought – “what the hell, I grew up in a war zone”. I think all children of active alcoholics grow up in a war zone and it sounds like you did too. I am always amazed when people are blissful after 90 days of treatment. Perhaps they feel this way because they are in a safe supportive environment. Life is hard and God knows you know that the hard way. All of this rambling comes straight from the heart. I don’t know why I am saying it but I am. I guess I want you to know that you are not alone and that you are not “bad” because you have relapsed. I pray that you love yourself enough to get off the addiction roller coaster. In the meantime, its obvious that the people who read your site love you and support you. Thank you for your honesty and your contribution to all of us who watch this show because it confirms the reality that we grew up in and live with. Blessings, metta and prayers – all good things to you. We are you and you are us. Thank you.

    • christina, thx for the engaging story. One thing I wasn’t clear about – was your mother using meth the whole 37 years she was an AA member, or did she have periods of sobriety?

      Posted by dan | April 4, 2015, 9:04 pm
      • Thank you for the question Dan. I felt like the world’s biggest narcissist writing part of my own story when the focus is on Dizzy. After my mother gave birth to me in 1958, she wanted to lose her “baby weight”. Her OB, who was very well-respected throughout her career, put her on speed. My mother loved it and stayed on it @50 years. Back in the day there was no meth in Greenwich Village. We were an affluent family and my mother was a lawyer – a criminal lawyer. She would take whatever drugs she could get from her clients – black beauties and “turn-arounds” (named for truckers who would take the drug to drive across country and then had the energy to turn around and drive back because they were on speed for 6,000 miles) were big then. My mother was a rage-acholoic in addition to being an alcoholic. I think she was crawling out of her skin most of the time between the booze and the speed and since I was an only child I got the brunt of her constant abuse. So the drugs have changed but the carnage of families has continued. Sorry for the long answer – I haven’t had my second cup of coffee (my drug of choice:)

  10. Such an “honest” story, Dizzy. I battled “functional alcholism” for 25 and have 8 years of sobriety, as of 2 days ago.. We could all fall back into old patterns and I take nothing for granted. Thanks for your story. Wishing you the best!

    Posted by dan | April 4, 2015, 9:01 pm
  11. ah, thanks for clarifying Christina. And don’t feel like a narcissist lol. We all have our tales of woe.
    I was born in ’58, as well, and started dabbling in amphetamines when i was about 20, so i remember Black Beauties, as well. They were given out pretty frequently back then.
    Glad that you’ve come out of that abusive childhood and are able to share it with us. And i hear ya on the coffee!!!

  16. Your story is super real! Just wondering if you have a Facebook as well so that people can reach out to you? There is no where on the page to private message you and don’t take this wrong but some addicts don’t like to go so public but want to reach out to inspire you or for help of themselves maybe adding a way to private message or a link to a Facebook so other addicts can be supportive of what you battle daily

    Posted by Just A Girl | April 20, 2015, 5:21 am
  17. Hi Dizzy, I could relate to your story. Here it goes. My brother was in the US Air Force, many decades ago, where he was landed in the Phillipines. He met & fell in love with a Melanie. Later, they had a daughter. To make a long story short, he caught Melanie in bed with another guy. This was my brother’s very first love & he fell HARD. Well, when he finally came home, though I was very young, I knew there was something “not right” with Teddy. Come to me real fast bec. (he wasn’t a drinker) he was drinking if not drunk whenever I would see him. To make an even longer story shorter, he died @ 56 yrs old due to alcoholizum. To lose a loved one from addiction SUCKS!!!

  18. Dizzy, thank you for sharing your story. I have been following this site for some time, and deeply appreciate both your writing skill and compassion towards both addicts and families. Good luck on your own journey.

  19. you need to stop drinking. quit fooling around. my only child, my daughter died last august. she was going to work every day also. But her body just quit. 2 months in intensive care. horrible way to die. horrible to watch. I have maintained my sobriety during and since. It would be dis- honorable to her to drink or drug.

    Posted by chris | May 8, 2015, 8:43 pm
  20. Dizzy the exact same thing happened to me I relapsed after 13 years of sobriety was out for two years and have come back in the sobriety and now I have almost 12 years a sobriety. It was insanely difficult to come back and get sober. The easier, softer way is always sobriety. I appreciate your work on this website very very much! I love this show intervention and I’ve seen just about every episode. I’m so glad it came back. I pray that you find the best solution for you that makes you happy and free.

  21. Is it bad if I get messed up then binge intervention? Almost like well at least I’m not that bad…but not really I sympathize with each and every one of them.

    Posted by lisa | May 12, 2015, 7:32 pm
    • I hear ya. I think lots of us watch to 1) feel better about ourselves because we’re not where they are AND 2) to see ourselves and our addictions being played out by someone else. It’s like a way of keeping ourselves in check while convincing ourselves that we’re not that bad. I think the psychology of Intervention fans is a fascinating topic for research, someone should do totally that.

      Posted by Dizzy | May 12, 2015, 8:05 pm
      • Just curious if your a Gemini . me and me other Gemini friend totally read into everything and psychoanalyse everyone. Not in a a judging condensing type way. We are just curious and always thinking!

        Posted by lisa | May 12, 2015, 10:13 pm
      • I completely agree with what Dizzy wrote, and yeah I agree I’d love someone to research it.

        & re: Lisa I am also definitely like that but I am a Capricorn.

  22. But seriously this is close to me. Both my parents are alcoholics. My mom (who is truly evil I have no trespassings and all that) would only drink on the weekends. The courts tried to tell me she was such a witch all week cuz she was waiting for her weekend fix. My dad on the other hand drinks all day and all night. Nice guy, never gets loud or sloppy like my mom but seriously is always drinking. I am scared for his health. He also smokes like 2 packs a day. His job made him get his z card physical and hes supposed to get a scan of the lungs, but he won’t. He lives in his parents house which is paid off so he’s got no rent no bills in general but spends all his money at the bar. Its ridiculous . I have 2 kids youd think he would be helping us ( he’s got a great steady job for 27 years) but no he not needs to borrow money from me. Its like I got rent, electric, propane, 2 kids one who needs to go Boston a lot for checkups from meningitis which living on an hour island is $60 just to get out of here. I did think at one point maybe he was doing some kind of drug but working on the boats they test. Found out at the bar he plays $26 a game keno! I just wish he could get it together for grand kids . he lost his liscense the same time as me 10 years ago and has done nothing to get it back. He just walks and buses to the bars. I know my kids would love for grandpa to take them for a ride! And how about cleaning your house? My sons 4 and just saw his grandpas house for the first time last week, he lives right down the street. Any who then me I’ve drank beer mostly, vodka a few times put me in hospital and handcuffed etc blacked out mad. I tried weed made me feel really weird and paranoid think I’m allergic to it. Then when I was 17 someone introduced to me to cocaine. That was it. It made me feel normal talkative and great. I never needed to find another drug. And now still 10 years later still struggling with binge episodes of drinking and doing coke. I take coke cuz I really don’t like being drunk and it sobers me up

    Posted by lisa | May 12, 2015, 8:00 pm
  23. It took me a while to decide to share what makes Intervention so special to me. I am the grandchild of a verbally abusive alcoholic. I grew up seeing and being babysat by my grandparents several times a week so this was a person I spent a lot of time with. Even though I was living in it, it wasn’t something we ever talked about and rarely acknowledged. I actually didn’t know what alcoholism was until I was a teenager.

    I had been watching Intervention for many years before it dawned on me last year and maybe even because of this site…every episode, I felt in some way so intimately familiar with the pain of the addicts’ families. Not just sympathy for them but I actually could feel those feelings of hurt and things unsaid. I finally realized that it was cathartic for me to see the family read their letters and put the secrets out in the open. I let myself remember how angry and sad and alone I felt growing up. This person in my life passed away many years ago, and they died in their addiction. Maybe things would have been different if we, as a family, stopped feeling ashamed and just dealt with it. Maybe not. But either way, I’ve forgiven and moved on and as cheesy as it is, Intervention is a big part of that.

  26. There was a girl on one episode… she was young, pretty, dark hair addicted to meth and her name started with a K. it was a different name. One I’ve never heard before. There was a clip of her crying as she was smoking her pipe because she didn’t want to be a tweeker…. do you remember that one? What’s her name?

  29. Wow, amazing. It hurts to think that you are still drinking albeit not some raging alcoholic still you’re not living to your spiritual potential… Not that you don’t know this or anything, just expressing my sadness. I hope you can be sober again some day soon. You have created. Wonderful website. Thank you. Despite your current alcohol use you are still extremely productive, imagine what you could do without the alcohol? Alcohol sucks, it truly is. Disease. You are a beautiful person, good luck to you. Are you a web designer btw? Or did you have the help of someone else to set up this website? Take care.

    Posted by Dhalia | October 1, 2015, 11:34 am
    • Do you have any idea how insulting and judgmental this post sounds?…Why does every compliment have to be followed up with an opinionated reference to Dizzy’s disclosure of drinking (which, btw, was not an invitation for your commentary), and the demeaning suggestion that she couldn’t have possibly created/still maintain this website on her own?…A “thank you” would have been enough. PS, Thank you, Dizzy.

      Posted by Laura | October 3, 2015, 7:55 am
  30. This was an amazing story. Im 9 months sober of alcohol, and I stopped using meth over three years ago. I have this huge amount of confidence because (i thought) 9 months/3 years was enough time to mean I was over my addictions. Your story has made me think twice, even though I dont want to loose my confidence, it can happen. I copied and saved the whole thing to bring me confidence when maybe I wont have any, to bring me truth when I tell myself i can just have one drink, and for inspiration. Dizzy, if you want help, I hope you get it, and if you don’t then I hope one day you do – because no matter what you’re doing now im sure you could do it 10x better sober.

  32. Dizzy! ur site is amazing.. i love it, and don’t understand why A&E wouldnt pay to keep ur site up and running.. anyway i was wondering if you ever thought about adding before and after pics of the people featured on the show- some of the guest have had dramatic transformations. just a thought 🙂

    Posted by jacinda godwin | April 12, 2016, 10:55 am
    • Yeah a lot of the transformations, even after 90 days, have been pretty incredible. I feel like it’s one of those satisfying things that happens at the end of the episode and if I had them posted here it would be kind of a spoiler, know what I mean? I don’t know, I’ll think about it though. Thanks for your comment!

      Posted by Dizzy | April 12, 2016, 1:02 pm
  33. Just thank you! I haven’t ever gone back but I sometimes feel I haven’t moved forward…then I breathe life! Forget the rest and be blessed! I’m still sober and like the site! Very interesting. I so wish that people could really see all the rest and the harder work after the show. It saved my life and I am so grateful but can’t get a job and feel sold out literally to outlet after outlet and have been out of work 5’months but, I am SOBER! I have my babies and all is well with the world! Anyone may see my life, LOL and tons of pics on Facebook at Suzon sanford-Wildridge. I don’t take a ton of requests bc of problems in past with mean butt face peeps but if you would like u may always message me and if appropriate I will gladly talk. Also help with locating services and organizing interventions! Thanks again for the site

  34. Dizzy, I too have a fascination/over-whelming interest in Intervention for several reasons. Mostly, I have a cousin I love very much who, over the past 15 years, has thrown away her life on meth. It makes me very sad. I keep hoping to get family support and try to arrange an intervention for her one day before I have to identify her body. Your openness and eloquence shines through. Keep the site up and care for yourself!

    Posted by Carol Rogers | July 11, 2016, 5:28 pm
  35. Hey, Dizzy:

    Thanks for this site. It’s magnificent, and proof positive, through your comments and those of others, of how deeply meaningful this show has been to people, especially to addicts like myself and people who have been affected by addiction.

    I’ve actually written a blog post about the show that links to your site: https://blarneycandor.com/2016/07/28/aes-intervention-how-guilty-is-my-pleasure/

    Maybe you’ll like it, I dunno.

    Anyway, best wishes to you and yours.

    Posted by Blarney Candor | July 28, 2016, 10:21 am
  36. Thank you for sharing your story, Dizzy. It’s truly awful to hear that you’re still drinking – because I am, too.

    I’m also a woman from Washington State, and I checked myself into rehab about five years ago. I only managed to put together a year (to the day!) of sobriety. I had a celebration drink in 2012 when the presidential election results came back in… and I haven’t stopped drinking since then.

    I’m rapidly giving up hope that I’ll ever be able to drink like a normal human being. My drinking is slowly costing me my health, my friends, and my career. I hate it, and I fear it. I worry that I don’t want to quit yet. What’s it going to take?

    Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for your share. And you’re not alone.

  41. Just happened upon your site after watching an Intervention marathon. It’s very impressive, what you’ve done here. So comprehensive and the summaries are wonderful. Keep up the good work!

  42. Hi Dizzy,
    I too am a struggling addict. I have been addicted to many things throughout my life so I understand what kind of damage the soul feels when living this way. I feel a deep connection to people who struggle with addictions and mental & emotional disorders like the ones portrayed on Intervention. Like you I have watched the show from the start and I am obsessed with it. I prided myself in seeing every episode until an old rerun came across the tv yesterday. It was season 13 episode 158 with Gina. This one hit me like a ton of bricks and I am legitimately worried about Gina, as the episode ended without a visual follow up, just a brief message that she completed treatment and moved to a sober house. Do you have any new info on her?
    I LOVE what you are doing here!!! Thank you! Stay hopeful and insightful!!
