Season 7, Episode 11
Location: Davis County, Utah
Addiction: Alcohol (vodka)
What’s Memorable: How her parents actually blamed her for their divorce. The hiding of the bottles all over the house. The sad relationship with her husband. How little she seems to care about whether she lives or dies.
Official synopsis: Although she has a blood clot in her brain that makes drinking dangerous, Kristine is an alcoholic. But she doesn’t believe her condition is a reason to quit because she recently learned that she may have leukemia. Now she figures she may as well keep drinking because the leukemia might kill her anyway. Can an intervention save her–and if she does have a terminal illness, is a successful intervention even an answer?
