Who didn’t go to treatment?

I’m finishing up on entering all the data I need in order to start crunching numbers and finding statistics and patterns, which I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I want to verify who ended up not going to treatment at all and I thought you might be able to help, instead of me having to go back and re-watch episodes.

Here are all the addicts I know of who did NOT attend treatment. If they didn’t attend treatment right after the intervention but the followup said they eventually went, they shouldn’t be on this list. These are only the folks who, at the end of the episode, still had not agreed to treatment and never went as far as we know.







Am I missing anyone?

  1. It would be interesting to know if any of the surviving addicts now regret refusing the opportunity.

  2. I remember seeing Adam’s episode on TV with a new update saying that he was no longer drinking, but I’m not sure if that was because of treatment or other means

    • I thought that she went to treatment later though?

      • She didn’t go on the episode (at least originially, maybe there was an updated on I missed). Though from her social media profiles she is with her family a lot so either she eventually went or they didn’t stick to their bottom lines.

        • An update at the end said that she went to treatment in August of 2006.

  5. Alissa eventually broke up with her boyfriend and has since remarried. She claims to have significantly reduced her gambling.

  7. Alissa actually did attend Gamblers Anonymous meetings, but I take it that doesn’t count as treatment.

  8. The show’s original series finale (Eric) ended by saying that 238 of the 243 people profiled went to treatment, so this list is accurate. I don’t believe anyone since the show was brought back hasn’t gone correct?

  9. What about the one guy who was a realtor and pastor? I thought he ended up skipping out on his way to treatment like Sean.
