Episode 247: Jade

Season 19, Episode 5

Age: 24
Location: Midgic, New Brunswick, Canada
Addiction:  Opioids, alcohol, crack

What’s Memorable:  This family has suffered through almost an epidemic of suicide and you can tell that it’s really affected them. They’ve all lived with so much pain and having to deal with Jade’s addiction and suicidal behaviors is just too much, I really felt for them all. I hope that Jade is able to stay on the right path, they need her around. Also, the more I see of Jesse’s interventions the more I like his style. He makes the family confront their contributions in a unique and I think effective way.

Note: This was obviously produced as an Intervention Canada episode but I can’t find any record of it ever airing in Canada on Slice or Documentary channel. So it’s a US-CA hybrid I guess. Like Justin Bieber!

Official Synopsis: Adorable and fearless, Jade had an ideal childhood, two loving parents and a passion for horses that led her to competitive show jumping. Jade’s world came crashing down around her when, at 10, her father’s increasing depression led to her parents’ divorce and her father’s attempted suicide. Left on her own while her father fell deeper into depression and her mother attempted to rebuild her life, Jade felt abandoned and turned to drugs and alcohol for comfort. Now, at 24, Jade has a severe addiction to prescription opioids and cocaine and suffers from intense suicidal ideations. She has overdosed three times in the past year. Her family are desperately afraid that she will not see her next birthday without a successful intervention.

Date Aired: July 2018
Interventionist: Jesse

  1. This is confusing and extremely frustrating. I can’t find this episode ANYWHERE. I don’t know why they have to be so vague and unorganized like this sometimes. Does anyone know we’re I can find this episode? I usually purchase my episodes from YouTube or Amazon Prime, but this one isn’t showing up anywhere…

  2. Don’t insult Jade by comparing her to Justin Bieber 😛

  3. Jesse’s approach is more holistic and spiritual than the other interventionists on the show. His method of dealing with the addict is gentler and softer (even more so than Sylvia). This works like a charm on addicts who are frail and emotionally vulnerable, but doesn’t work on addicts who are more hardened and hostile and put up a bad-ass front. I wonder if he gets more assertive and confrontational with certain addicts when the situation requires it – an interventionist’s greatest skill is adaptability.

    He’s also quite nice to look at 😉
