  1. Anyone know how she’s doing? I would like an update. Kids got potential

  2. After watching this episode, I googled looking for an update, and found the original post on the Intervention facebook page. Her sister commented (said she was more addicted to heroin, but show focused on bath salts), so I found her through that. I don’t know if it’s happened more recently, but as far as I can tell she was definitively using as of March 2014. Her current profile picture, from August 2015, shows her pregnant, so I hope that means that she’s not using right now. She seems like a sweet girl. Here’s her page – https://www.facebook.com/LissaMMariie

  3. I felt like Alissa deserved her own episode. Her story felt rushed, and I just feel like she had more to say. She seemed thoughtful and intelligent, and obviously a traumatized child underneath still.

    Watching her attempt to shoot up is cringe worthy. It was actually hard to watch her do it, had to look away once. Really hope things turned out for her! Never too late.
