luke

Luke
Age: 23
Location: San Francisco, California
Addiction: Crack
What’s memorable: Living on the streets with his mother who is willingly homeless just so she can keep an eye on her son. That’s some crazy co-dependency there. The craziness that he spouts when he’s high is disturbing.  The intervention and followup is a tear jerker, very affecting. I hope this family is well now.

Official Synopsis: Luke, 23, dreams of a career in photojournalism, but his daily cocktail of drugs has derailed his college plans and left both him and his mother struggling to survive on the streets of San Francisco.

What’s Memorable: Benny really believes he deserves to be crazy rich, and seems confused about why he’s not yet. He thinks it’s just going to magically happen someday, and all his problems will be solved. Also, how horrible he is to his mother, the intervention.

Official synopsis:  An ambitious inventor and entrepreneur, Benny once dreamed of becoming a millionaire. But stress, drugs, and alcohol have turned his dream into a nightmare. Worst of all, he is no longer a dependable father to his six-year-old daughter.

Season 10, Episode 1

brittany

Brittany
Age: 19
Location: Southeast Michigan
Addiction: Heroin
What’s memorable: The strange “unsubstantiated claims” of sexual abuse disclaimer that I’ve never seen on this show before. Has this weird effect of making you think she’s lying, when really it’s just about legalities. Also memorable: the seemingly decent co-dependent boyfriend that inexplicably puts up with a whole lotta crazy shit.

Official synopsis:  Brittany once dreamed of becoming a police officer to protect people from the traumas that she faced as a child. But at 22, her goal is slipping away. She’s a heroin addict who sells her body to get her next high. Can Brittany’s family convince her that it’s not too late to get help?
