    Hi
    I am so glad Intervention is returning it has changed so many life’s mine included. Being sn addiction counselor myself it is always sad to not to be able to help everyone. Always devastating when you lose some whether it be to relapse or death. Makes one think what more could I have done? The answer is of course nothing as it is the addicts responsibility to change and the counselors responsibility to provide them the tools to change. I am asked about my addiction shopping, do I still shop? Yes of course however not to the extreme as I did before, more like everyone else with limits and a purpose. I now sell New and thoughtfully used Intimates on EBay to supplement my income, I left the link so please take a peek very affordable. So I get the fun of shopping and making extra money very fun

      Heidi,

      It’s so great to hear you are doing well! I hope things just keep getting better for you, thanks for sharing your story with us.

      Thank you for sharing your story, it was truly very brave of you during one of the weakest times of your life. Be well

    Wait…what do you mean ‘thoughtfully used’?

    1. KD

      Right??! I’m gonna guess it means what we think it does. Though that doesn’t seem like it is written by the same person from the episode, unless English was not Heidi’s first language.

      It means you get to wear someones “thoughtfully used” G-string. Sign me up. Not.

    Just took a look at the site HEIDI linked… I can’t say for certain that’s it’s her, but she has A LOT of stuff for sell. Like hundreds of intimate appeal (I saw mostly nightgowns & bras thankfully)…

    Looks like she’s still a shopper.

    It’s terrible what happened to her. Hope she is doing well. She has a great mom

    Sadly, Heidi’s mom recently passed away. Her mom seemed very sweet and loving of Heidi. RIP.

    I have watched this show for so long now. Been a “recovering” addict myself I just find it hard to believe this has anything to do with what the show should be about. Not diminishing her addiction but i just dont get it…

      The show is about addictions. This is an addiction. End of story. All addictions are harmful and everyone with an addiction worries their family and loved ones. If you don’t agree with it, just watch the drug and alcohol episodes!
