Episode 142: Latisha

Season 10, Episode 4

latisha

Latisha
Age: 39
Location: Kalamzaoo, Michigan
Addiction: Crack
What’s memorable: Latisha appears to really like herself and her life, fancying herself popular and well liked, but the image she has of herself is a bit different from how people actually see her, as her daughter says. 20 hours a day smoking crack at her kitchen table, she can’t be too popular. Her kids at the intervention were heartbreaking. So glad she went to treatment.

Legacy Update: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-40_j_JME1w

Official synopsis:  A mother of three, Latisha will go to any lengths to feed her crack addiction, including prostitution. Having been abandoned by her own parents because of their addictions, she’s happy with her life and just wants her family to get off her back, but the needs of her young daughter Tuesday are going unmet. There’s only one way to save Latisha from her herself–an intervention.

Original Air Date: July 2011
Interventionist: Candy

Categories: Addicted Parent, Candy, Crack, Season 10

    • I don’t know about her daughter but I do believe she is clean – she apparently ended up going back to the Prescott AZ treatment center after her relapse – at least according to Facebook (I was so curious as to what happened after watching this episode on amazon prime last night – found some stuff saying she was a life coach at the prescott place…I knew the minute it said she moved back to MI she would relapse…so at least it looks like she went back to AZ & got clean again). I doubt her daughter is using though….that girl seemed to have her sh*t together…

  3. LaTisha if you ever read this I just want you to know that I am proud of your recovery. My moma has been a crack addict, alcoholic, and with her being ill she now abuses pain meds also. I’m 31 and I don’t remember her being sober longer than 60 days but I can remember attending meeting with her just to support her. She still uses and it has made our relationship astranged but I know its a sickness. So just to see 1 person make it, its a blessing. Keep up the good work.

  5. Latisha, I watched the Intervention show today, about you, your precious children, and your parents. Your beautiful children made me weep at their tears during your intervention meeting.
    Seeing you healthy and so beautiful, was inspiring to others I know. Keep up the fight, and keep on keeping on!!!

  7. This is one of my favorite episodes and post-show success stories. Her family speaking at the intervention made me cry my eyes out with them. I am so happy for Latisha and her family! And that Latisha is helping others to overcome addiction. Latisha … your family and this positive path you are on are things very much to be proud of! You have truly become a queen!

  9. Drug addiction has plagued black communities for years, but Latisha is only the second black woman I’ve seen on Intervention, so this episode really touched me. I think it’s the only episode that had me crying like a baby. I’m so proud of her.
