Episode 72: Jenny

Season 5, Episode 12


Age: 32
Location: Twin Falls, Idaho
Addiction:  Heroin, Meth

(Guest Post by Stefan) What’s Memorable: This episode illustrated the concept of Patriarchal Blessing in the Mormon Church, which was something I was unfamiliar with. It was a breath of fresh air to have such a religious family be as supportive/understanding of an addicted family member as Jenny’s was (it’s something I feel like isn’t so common on this show). Also, her shooting up and nodding off while giving a haircut was disturbing.

Official Synopsis:  Jenny, 32, is a talented hairstylist from a close-knit Mormon family. When a diagnosis of endometriosis crushes her dreams of having a family, she turns to prescription drugs. Her addiction quickly escalates to IV heroin and meth use.

Date Aired: September 2008
Interventionist: Candy

Categories: Candy, Heroin, Meth, Religious Family, Season 5

  1. If I’m not mistaken, Jenny was from Twin Falls, Idaho, not Utah.
