POLL: Which Addict Did You Find The Most Likable?

Sturgill’s episode put me in a good mood and I thought I’d extend it a bit by asking you: Which Intervention addict do you think was the Most Likeable?

The names listed here are those that either I’ve already put on my Most Likable list or that I’ve heard mentioned in the comments more than once. If you have someone else in mind, leave a comment.

  1. I think this post is a bit too much. I like this blog because it documents a show that i really enjoy. A show that follows tries to give good people whove fallen off track a second chance. To choose favorites, and most likeable people isn’t what this show is supposed to accomplish, and i dont think it was the initial goal of this blog either. I think this post and poll almost implies that others arent likeable, and this poll/post is not cool.

    • Some of the people featured on the show are in fact not very sympathetic. Others are.

      To take a poll on something that is a major feature of this blog is nothing special, though appreciated.

      I think it was pre-loaded for a Sylvia landslide personally 🙂

  2. Ok well, thanks for reading my blog and I hear what you’re saying, but I don’t agree with what you think this site is about. The show is trying to accomplish 2 things-getting addicts to treatment and getting people to watch. This site isn’t trying to accomplish those things. My intention is to provide a complete directory of the episodes & addicts and to give viewers (myself included) and participants a space to talk about the show and addiction in general. I mean there are a few rules here but I don’t think that “don’t pick favorites” should be one. The “Most” lists here have been here since I started this project many years ago and I’ve always been pretty open about who I thought was likable/warm/kind whatever, so I don’t think it’s fair to say that having this poll isn’t true to the site’s intention.

  3. Well said Dizzy. And if I’m not mistaken exactly one addict has been ghosted from this site on the grounds of….odious-ness. Rightfully so. This is not the official A&E site.

    Honorable mention for likable: Penny

    • Love it . I was trying to find an acceptable word to describe that ghosted subject . Odious-ness ? You are much nicer than me and 100 % correct .
      My honorable mention /most likeable is not on the list either so I have to name him : Greg .

      • Who was this and what was the situation? I follow this site pretty often but don’t recall.

      • Season 1 Gabe has been ghosted from this site on account of his odiousness.

        Posted by Dizzy | December 28, 2016, 2:51 pm
  4. Will you make a most unlikable addict poll? I think from Gabe from season 1 would definitely earn that title.

    • I agree. That guy had the mother of all narcissistic personality disorders. Kaila (S14 E4), Nick (S13 E14), Sarah (S13 E17, Elena’s granddaughter), Brittney (S11 E9) and Ryan (S3 E1) are other addicts I found unlikable.

      • I’m amazed you didn’t include Misty Christy. She was funny, but so unlikable to say the least.

        Posted by Stefan | December 28, 2016, 9:03 pm
      • Stefan, Misty Christy was clearly psychotic. It’s not really fair to call her “dislikable” because she can’t control what goes through her head or comes out her mouth.

  5. I think this poll is ok. If the addicts have a thick enough skin to agree to be on the show (or a documentary) then they can handle it. Plus they don’t have to come to this site.

  6. I found Michael (S10 E13, the 50 year old meth addict from San Diego) to be one of the more likable addicts. Even in the depths of his addiction he still had a kind soul and never wanted to hurt anyone, and he came across as an affable, generous guy. The compassion his ex Roxanne showed him was also inspiring – that woman had a heart of gold and refused to give up on him.

  7. Derek was bad also.

    Posted by Kristy | December 28, 2016, 4:28 pm
  8. My favorite was Jenna, the Boston area heroin addict, just because I could identify with her a lot. People will have different favorites and it doesn’t really mean anyone is more or less likable, in my opinion.

    Posted by A.S. | January 6, 2017, 7:05 pm
  9. I really liked Trent.

    Posted by Kat R. | January 20, 2017, 3:22 am
  10. To me, most likeable:

    Diana, the meth and alcohol addict from Roseville, CA
    Jenna, heroin addict from Boston
    Ricardo, meth addict from Albuquerque
    Kacy, alcoholic from North Dakota-she was a mess but I could relate to her
    Lawrence, alcoholic from Las Vegas

    Least likeable:
    Cristy-meth and alcohol addict
    Sierra-meth addict
    Brittney-alcoholic from CA
    Anne and Digger-I felt so bad for their kids!

    • My list:

      MOST:
      *Hubert (homeless alcoholic from Canoga Park CA)
      *Michael (52 year old meth addict from San Diego)
      *Brooks (the quadriplegic from Arkansas)
      *Jonel (the Native American from Montana)
      *Tressa (the shotputter from Nebraska)
      *Dawn (the meth addict from Nebraska)

      LEAST:
      *Ryan (the sociopath OxyContin addict from Fresno who kept making fun of the president of his treatment centre)
      *Gamblin’ Gabe
      *Andrew (the bulimic from Austin)
      *Nick (the junkie from Albuquerque who seduced his drug counselor)
      *Gloria (the “angry black woman” alcoholic from Oakland)
      *Brittney (the spoiled brat alcoholic from Orange County CA)
      *Chad (the homeless ex-cyclist who was probably a world class douche bag long before he ever did his first drug)

      It would be easy to include addicts like Cristy, Linda and Sierra on the least likable list, but I don’t include addicts who are clearly psychotic because they have no control over what goes through their head and what comes out their mouth.

      • Definitely a great list!!!

        Posted by Kristy | March 20, 2017, 11:56 am
      • “angry black woman”?…wow.

        Posted by Laura | March 22, 2017, 1:50 am
      • I can’t believe I left Kaila off the least likable list! She was the anorexic diva who mixed Ken up with Jeff! She was odious (to use one of Dizzy’s favourite words)!!

        Posted by Janelle | March 22, 2017, 2:52 pm
      • I actually really liked Gloria. She’s from my area and she’s a typical alcoholic which makes people angry and abrassive because of the nature of the drug. it’s easy to dub a black woman with a strong personality as “an angry black woman.” ultimately I find it wrong to say that about her because I think alot of alcoholics are angry. angry about their condition, their past, etc. all in all I liked how strong she was and what a survivor she was.

        Most of the addicts that I’m not a fan of were those that treated their family Rwally poorly. like Dillon or Katie Y.

      • Nick was super creepy.

        Posted by A.S. | March 26, 2017, 12:14 pm
  11. My vote for most likeable addict was ‘Other’. I really enjoyed Miriam.

    Posted by Mr. Markus Kobi | April 15, 2017, 6:52 pm
  12. The most likeable addict is Robbie because even as low as he got in his addiction he CARED about people. So many addicts are selfish, but his big heart showed even through his addiction. What a sweetheart he seemed like. I hope he stays sober.

  13. I found Aimee from Intervention Canada to be incredibly likeable … I think I just felt really bad for her.

    Posted by Kelsee | May 23, 2017, 9:05 am
  14. My favourite one was John Carstens, the guy with diabetes.

    And, sorry, but I hated the cyclist Chad. He was so manipulative and arrogant.

  15. I think the most likeable addict was Tiffany from season 13. She was from West Virginia and addicted to heroin. She had such a sweet nature in spite of her addiction, a lot of faith and hope. She seems to be doing well nowadays too and I’m happy for her.
