    This was a great episode. Any word on how he’s doing today? I know he had a few bumps in rehab but hope he’s put all that behind him. Sucks he lost his medical license-hey Mike Brazil is a pretty cool place dude!

    i get leaving your husband bc of drugs but not to let his family see the kids either? WTF? that’s SO messed up. mike’s parents are innocent and are dealing with the same thing as she is!

      There could be reasons we don’t know about. Like if he was messed up and his parents let him in the house while his kids were there. Since he was allowed to see the kids after the intervention, there was probably good reason why he and his parents couldn’t see them before.

    I think that Mike was one of the most likable on Intervention. Wishing him & his family all the best!

      He’s not on there though. Another doctor seems to have taken over the practice.

    Well, even as a dedicated Intervention viewer having season dozens of episodes, I can say that this one will be the most memorable for me because I am a chiropractor! I was COMPLETELY HORRIFIED that he was seeing patients, and offering to adjust his mom in the state he was in. You’re definitely supposed to lose your license if you are doing that. Hopefully the process for getting it back was lengthy and thorough, doing as much as possible to make certain he NEVER lays a hand on someone professionally when he’s in that state again. Jesus.

      I remember him saying that he shouldn’t be practicing due to not having insurance. I don’t think he lost his license. He lost his business but I don’t believe the licensing board knew about his drug use.
