Addicted to: Rage, alcohol, crack
What’s memorable: How scary he is. $20k worth of property damage to his own house. He’s physically abusive to his family. His dad actually prefers it when he’s on crack because he’s not as violent. Scary stuff right there.
Official synopsis: Adam, who began using heroin after his girlfriend broke up with him, panhandles money at gas stations to get enough money to score. His family is “hanging on by a thread” and desperate for intervention help.
Original Air Date: December 2005
I’ve found references to this episode, but it is not listed on the Intervention Episode Guide and is not available on Netflix. And as far as I know, it has not been re-run since it originally aired in July of 2005. If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know.
