Very sad to announce that Courtney Ball passed away on May 12, 2020. Here is a notice of her memorial.

Courtney’s 2012 Intervention episode was one of the most memorable and controversial episodes of the show. According to her sister Kim, who commented here in February, Courtney had been struggling with her addiction and drug-induced psychosis and was really not well, but her family had not given up on her and still had hope she would make it out the other side. She was obviously adored by her loved ones and will be dearly missed. Rest in peace sweet girl.

  1. Man, this is so sad. I just watched her episode a while back and she really stuck in my brain. So young…. I hope she’s at peace now.

  4. I always thought if she didn’t get out when she did, her life would be over sooner than it should have. If the drugs don’t kill you the life style certainly will. Does anyone know the cause of death? To the family and friends to this sweet baby girl who had a whole life ahead of her, my deepest sympathy and sadness for a child that should still be here today. RIP
    Sadly, I didn’t think she had much time left.

  6. I am watching this episode now. COurtney’s grandma breaks my heart. And her sister too. Her mom? no.

    That she descended further and further into mental illness is just devastating. If we had national health insurance, this girls would still be alive.

    rest in peace Courtney.

  7. Her sister loved her soooo much, it may have been the strongest bond I’ve seen between siblings on the show. Courtney was also such a good person at heart.

    Rest In Peace sweet girl.
