  1. Her grandfather paid for her flight home after 42 days of free high quality treatment! Jeff was right, there was no point in the intervention if the grandparents weren’t going to stop enabling her.

    • Here is a video update on Tiffany in case you or anyone else is interested. It looks like she finally got clean!

      (This is a video she did for a rehab program she completed)

      • Suncoast Rehab is part of Narconon, run by the Church of Scientology and accused of being a dangerously unscientific front for their recruitment. There have been high-profile, allegedly quite preventable deaths in Narconon rehabs and many of the techniques they use are based on the writings of L. Ron Hubbard, not guided by best practices in therapy and rehabilitation of any kind.

        I hope she’s healthy, but it’s disturbing to see a Narconon testimonial/ad on this site, even in the comments.

        • You’re absolutely right. Addicts have actually DIED in their care from withdrawal. $250,000 for treatment which consists of sitting in a sauna to sweat out toxins, and running around a track for 6-8 hours a day.

      • Suncoast Rehab is a subsidiary of the “church” of $cientology. Be careful in getting involved with them.

  2. So, do we know if she’s still “sober”? I somehow just cannot see this girl enjoying and maintaining the sober life after a childhood of pageantry.

    • LOL! What does being in pageants have to do with being sober? I enjoy a sober and healthy life and I was a kid pageant participant. I loved them and had a blast. What a bizarre connection to make.

      • I don’t think it’s a bizarre connection at all. Every childhood is different. But there have been conclusive studies about childhood pageants leading to issues down the road. In my opinion (keyword opinion) any hobby that teaches young children that the prettiest girl wins, is damaging and bad for development.

  4. Pray for her and her family. So many can judge so easily. Tiffany is one of those, who with out drugs, is such a great intelligent person, as is her younger sister. Hand to mouth, yes, choice is hers, but that meth is the devil and the only thing that can fight against it is a God supported inner strength along with family members who can forgive but not be enablers.

  5. I just saw your episode, Tiffany, and saw the follow-up after your successful rehab. So happy for you. Congratulations and continued sobriety and happiness for you.

    • I know,right? I’m not a fan of beauty pageants for babies/little kids, and it was spooky how she was sitting in the shed and going on about her awards for “prettiest hair”, “prettiest smile”, etc. The fact that her mom kept using the word “perfect” to describe her was also unsettling. I mean, you love your kids, but constantly saying they’re perfect is a burden after a while, or else one “believes their own press” and thinks they are indeed perfect and have no need for understanding and facing consequences for their actions. I am NOT saying that those in beauty contests from infancy are all going to wind up like this woman AT ALL. Lots of denial in this family, though, especially the alcoholic dad and the grandfather who says, “We have no addiction in this family.” My God. How blind can a person be when their sons/daughters are addicts?

    • Agreed. So far there were 6 Tiffany’s on Intervention. Let’s see what the future holds if we get anymore.

  8. Did anyone else think the sister looked like she was using?

  9. Beauty pageant cringe.. perhaps it’s a southern culture thing I simply don’t understand (not cal girl) but I find it so exploitive and creepy. I could tell her parents meant well but it doesn’t seem like the right way to validate a child.

    Also, Dizzy, random but do you think Tiffany is the most common name in the series thus far? I’ve noticed a lot. Not that there is any correlation, just a random observation.
