Episode 73: Casie

Season 5 Episode 8


Age: 25
Location: Texas
Addiction: Primarily meth, but she’ll do pretty much anything that gets her high. She’s also bulimic.

What’s memorable:  How everyone waits on her hand and foot and tiptoes around her constantly, and she’s completely abusive to them. And the boyfriend John. Oy vey! So weak when it comes to her, so enabling. And what the hell was with him watching her as she got ready for a date, after driving 7 hours to see her? Makes me wonder if it was an escort-type date, not a real date. Not confirmed, just guessing. Also it’s interesting that she got addicted to drugs because they were a way to lose weight. I wonder how many people have got addicted that way.

Official Synopsis: Once a successful hairstylist, Casie now works in a small-town salon to fuel her $500-a-week meth habit. Casie’s childhood was marred by her mother’s drug addiction. Suffering from low self-esteem, Casie became bulimic and an addict. She lost her career, her life’s savings, and her husband. Casie’s mother now tries to make up for Casie’s difficult childhood by enabling her, even at the cost of her own marriage. Casie’s boyfriend, John, also an addict, is desperately trying to keep her alive. Casie’s drug use is taking everyone down with her.

Original Air Date: January 2009
Interventionist:  Ken

  3. In this episode I appreciated Casie’s honesty… I could definitely relate to a lot of the things she said.

  4. Does anyone know of Casie’s progress? John? I sure hope that Hank is doing well and that his wife realizes she’s very lucky to have a good man in her life.

    Wish nothing but the best for all of them.

  8. Sorry everyone it’s actually Casie James. Florance must be her maiden name.

  10. Based on her Facebook profile, she’s doing amazing! She’s married with two children and she has found faith in God. A complete turn around from where she was when she was on the show. I would post a link to her Facebook but I don’t know how to do that but you can look her up. She now goes by Casie James (Florance)

  11. casie treated everyone, particularly her mother and stepfather, sooo badly and i hate how everyone allowed it! so nasty, abusive, obnoxious, and sarcastic. she recognized it though and i believe was sorry, but still. i didn’t like the way casie AND her mother treated the stepdad. they both made him feel unwanted and unneeded, like he wasn’t even part of the family. he was a good guy. i’d be SO surprised if the mom and stepfather were still together today. and lastly, it bothered me how the bf was at casie’s beck and call. he was late for the pre-intervention bc he had to do her yard work and laundry? really? ugh. how is that more important?? i mean, i get why they all put up with it. it’s codependency and enabling and it’s easy to make these judgements from the outside looking in. bc i’ve been there so i have no room to talk. i’ve been in relationships where i’ve put up with wayyyyy more than i should have. and i’m not judging, just making observations.

  12. Is this her? It sure looks like her.. https://www.instagram.com/hair_garage/

  13. Okay, does no one else see that Hank is the worst???? He DEFINITELY baits her. Everything he says to her is worded so selfishly and when he reads his letter at the end, he is clearly inhaling into his nose louder to make it sound like he is holding back tears. It sounds so fake, it’s plain as day. I think he was hugely detrimental to the intervention as a whole, and definitely should have been made to stay away from the beginning. He is definitely displaying many psychopathic traits. I also wonder if maybe he did something to her at some point? So he steamrolls her and pretends and forces himself into the safe space of her intervention to make sure she can’t say anything.

    • Omg yes! Casies mom was right, he shouldn’t be allowed to take part on the intervention at first. Every move or word of him was not for help Casie, but to be mean to her.
      He didn’t show any genuine love, care or even worry about casie. He just seemed to hate her and wanting her out of their lives. He played the victim and wore a mask of “good guy making effort to be tough bc its necessary to save casie’s life” just to feel free to throw shite at her when she was most vulnerable. It was coward and abusive.
