Episode 247: Jade

Season 19, Episode 5

Jade
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…

    • I have this episode full, ad-free, if you still want to watch it. I can upload it to YouTube as an unlisted video and give you the link, or something else if you know a better method.

  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 😉

  4. Does anyone have any of her social media? She is such a pretty girl. I wished the interventionist would have given treatment to all of the family members

  7. What stood out the most to me was how completely enabling her entire family is. Her sisters, mom, stepdad, everybody jumps when she says jump and are IMMEDIATELY thrown into action whenever she needs drugs. The other thing that was concerning was the blatant disregard Jade seemingly had to her use and the dangers of the amounts she was consuming. She was doing HUGE shots, to the point where she’d be completely passed out merely seconds after injecting. If you pass out THAT quickly, then you’re really close to overdosing. Typically it would come on as a more gentle nod, but not with the amounts she was consuming.

  8. The only place I’ve found to watch Jade’s episode or other Canadian ones is on the A&E website unfortunately, where if you have a TV provider you can sign in with your info to watch it.

    I really like Jade as a person, she has incredible depth and fragility but a sense of humor as well. I laughed when she said a lot of the drug dealers around her area are “old, and they dont have to hit on you or anything they just act all weird and creepy as f—.” I think she has a good shot at recovery, she has two sisters who have been sober long term. I wish her the best.

  9. Anyone know how she’s doing now? I thought the end update was really weak but I guess that’s all they had

  10. I found it hard to empathize with this episode, because her life doesn’t appear very difficult. I mean, I know she said she has anxiety and depression but so do I and a lot of people. Plus the family was just so permissive that it drove me nuts.

  11. Was she the last episode of season 19?

  12. A&E says they are “in production” with the rest of the season. I don’t understand why they do it the way they do.
