Episode 102: Jennifer

Season 7 Episode 3

Age: 22
Location: Mesa, Arizona
Addiction: Alcohol
What’s memorable: I’d like to have sympathy for Jennifer, she’s been through a lot, but she’s got such a bad attitude and is so ungrateful and annoying, it’s pretty hard. It’s interesting how she believes that drinking alone is a sign of alcoholism, so she drags her reluctant friends around with her while she drinks. Also, her obsession with parties and how she goes to random parties that she finds on MySpace and gets wasted. Sketchball.

Update: Looks like Jennifer is doing pretty well. Newspaper article.

Official Synopsis: Once an effervescent, beautiful young woman, Jennifer was considered a genius by her teachers and was the pride and joy of her parents. But at age 17, Jennifer was involved in a car accident that caused a brain injury and kidney damage. Jennifer survived, but only three days after she left the hospital another family car accident ended in a fatality. Jennifer turned to drugs and alcohol to cope and now spends her days searching for parties or drinking companions. Her parents know that only an intervention can save her.

Original Air Date: December 2009

Interventionist: Jeff

Categories: Alcohol, Death of Loved One, Jeff, Most In-Denial Addicts, Season 7, Traumatic Incident

    • What makes her awesome? Is it when she tells her dad that she needs sex while drunk off her ass? Or when she drinks alcohol that she’s vomited into? Or is it when she loses he scholarship? Or when she nearly kills her friend in a drunk driving accident? Which one of those make you think she’s awesome?

  2. Her twitter which is from prior to intervention up to her 3rd stint in rehab:

  3. This intervention was CRINGE-worthy! The friend telling the story of Jennifer getting so drunk at the friend’s graduation party that she was half naked messing around with some guy on the lawn?? Then, even WORSE, is when she says to her day (her DAD!) that she “needs sex”. GAH!

  4. Unfortunately she seems highly interested in/involved with alcohol still based off of the pictures with quotes she posted on her facebook. She seems “happy’ with her alcohol use, poking fun at it on her page. I’m really praying for her and her family that has already suffered a lot.

  5. I saw this episode a long time ago and it always stuck with me. I have to agree with everything that Dizzy said about Jennifer. She is one of my least favorite addicts profiled on this show. And that family is such a wreck. When her mother says she thinks the devil has been replaced with Jennifer; did anyone else find that disturbing? Like, she literally believes it’s SATAN that is possessing her daughter. I don’t know why I found her Christian family to be so creepy. Probably because they have not even BEGUN to heal from the loss of their son, and their grief mixed with their unwavering Christian values is just unsettling to watch.

  6. Sadly, I don’t think Jennifer is clean. If you look through her Facebook page that’s linked above it’s pretty sad. She had a go-fundme page up which as since been taken down. Her mother and friends posted comments on it telling her she needs to get it together and get a job. She said she was living in a trailer park with friends. She seems to be in a pretty bad relationship too. The guy that I assume is/was her boyfriend posts mean comments and memes to her page. It all just pretty sad. :/

  8. I’ve watched this episode a couple of times recently, and does anyone else think that Jennifer is suffering from the effects of lingering brain damage from her car accident, perhaps? She acts in such an inappropriate way that it seems like there’s something else afoot in addition to her staggering alcohol intake.

    Here is her most recent Facebook. She looks great, she seems happy and she looks to be on good terms with her family.

  10. Just went looking at her fb, and she said she’s homeless…. I guess she’s not doing good. Praying she does good.

  11. Once upon a time, I used to be friends with her. She is also a Meth addict but that was edited from the show. I had to cut her out of my life when I got clean years ago. To this day she is still a drunk, and a meth addict, who lives off her parents money and refuses to work or get clean. I had sympathy for her for many years, but she refuses to get clean and grow up. All I can do, all we can do, is pray for her.

  13. I know this is totally off topic but I just saw a commercial of her mom talking about Waymo self driving cars. She was promoting them and mentioned Jennifer’s late brother.

  14. I feel really, really bad for the mom in this one.

  15. Not gonna lie I couldn’t remember if Myspace was still active in 2009. I thought by then Facebook had taken over
