Jordon (Intervention Canada)

Season 16, Episode 5

Jordon
Age: 29
Location:  Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Addiction: Meth (injected)

What’s Memorable: The whole weird situation with his sister on a night when he was high was disturbing. I hope he’s made amends for that because it clearly affected his sister Katie, she obviously needs some closure there.  I love that when he got to treatment he was immediately motivated to commit himself to recovery and really make an effort. I love it when they do that! All in all a powerful and heartwarming episode.

Official Synopsis: Handsome, talented musician’s promising career is sideswiped by crystal meth, plunging him into a life of crime, prostitution, and addiction. (Canadian produced.)

Date Aired:  December 2016
Interventionist:
Andrew

  1. I hope Jordon got his life together and is staying clean and sober. Winnipeg is not the best place to be homeless in…it’s the sort of place where a homeless addict could freeze to death and not be found until days later.

    One of the issues I’m sure he had to address in treatment was how his family expected him to be a part of the family musical group and constantly tried to prevent him from expressing himself as an individual, musically or otherwise. Being surrounded by people who see the world in terms of what they approve and disapprove of and being unable to meet their approval is a major addiction trigger.

  2. Jordan was seriously an addict that scared the crap out of me. I think some people have a certain darkness and then when they do drugs it comes out. It may just be the editing but there is something about him just rubs me the wrong way…he is nice enough to the people around him but like most addicts, it’s part of the manipulation. To me, he comes off volatile & capable of real evil. Whatever happened between his sister & him is still not clear but with human nature…. whatever came to the surface was likely to be there before the meth. Meth just lowered inhibitons & made it seem ok at the time to say out loud. And his family?? Where is their parental responsibility?. Just “oh lets make music & pretend everything is peachy”. And that horrendous haircut…just no.
    I hope he gets & stays clean so the family can start to repair all of their relationships. Best of luck to them
