Kathy (Intervention Canada)

Season 16, Episode 3

Age: 51
Location:  Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Addiction: Crack, alcohol

What’s Memorable: Kathy is obviously a very smart, vibrant, fun, strong woman when she’s not high or trying to get high. She had ROUGH childhood, and adulthood for that matter, so it’s not shocking that she would turn to drugs. But she did so great for a while and her slide from where she once was is so unsettling. Her misery about being who she is right now, while simultaneously demanding to be able to stay that way, is a difficult thing to watch.  I had high hopes for her recovery, too bad it didn’t take. Hopefully she’ll get herself into treatment and get back to being who she really is.

Official Synopsis: Wealthy entrepreneur loses everything to crack, reducing her life to a never ending cycle of prostitution and begging. (Canadian produced.)

Date Aired:  December 2016

  1. I just watched this episode. I was saddened at the end to see that Kathy left treatment and relapsed. I hope that there is a more positive update later if there can be an update later. I’m really hoping that she can clean up her life and go on to live what could be a very rewarding life.

  3. I really felt for Kathy, it was obvious that deep down she wants to get better. I really hope that at least she gets involved with an organization like “Stella” which is a non-profit who’s goal is to ensure safety from the violence done to sex workers. They’ll have a system of spotters holding guard while they work, they’ll use distress signals so that if a meeting goes awry and gets violent, the authorities will be notified immidiately. No one deserves to get beaten and raped (let alone murdered!) even if they live a dangerous lifestyle. They also do blood screens for STD’s. All of this is completely legal and FREE of charge (Yeee Canada!). It would’ve been interesting for the show to mention these preventive systems, even though Intervention is based on getting the addicts to stop, if Kathy can’t stop, at least she would be a little bit safer where work is concerned. Her family are wonderful people, I really hope she makes it.
