Send Dizzy a Tip!

Buy Me a Coffee

Season 7 Episode 12


Age: 26
Location: Scottsdale, Arizona
Addiction: Oxycontin primarily, but also Percocet, Vicodin, Xanax, etc.
What’s memorable: Dude gets HIGH on those pills, man. Can’t even keep his eyes open. The relationship with his addict dad is interesting, how far he went down after his death. Also, the delusions about his Italian ancestry is fascinating. He’s clearly just desperately searching for an identity and has been for a long time.

Official Synopsis: A talented cellist and an aspiring music producer, Shane’s musical aspirations are now out of reach because he abuses prescription drugs and deals drugs out of his grandmother’s house. After injuring his neck in a car accident, he began abusing OxyContin. His father was a drug addict, too, who died from an overdose. Now Shane is following in his father’s deadly footsteps–can an intervention break the cycle?

Original Air Date: January 2010
Interventionist:  Jeff

    How is Shane doing all these years since Intervention? There are no comments here yet and I couldn’t find any info about him online. He looked and sounded a lot better once he got sober. I hope he has continued to be successful with his sobriety and is living a great life!

    I hate that there are no updates on Shane. I would love to know how he is doing now. I pray that he is still sober and has a happy life. If anyone knows how he’s doing please update us

  3. Holly

    Shane seemed to be a pretty decent guy with a really really good heart, who just got some wrong turns, when following the steps of his father, who he adored so much, despite the fact his dad wasnt exactly a good role model for him. It was so sweet to see the way he reacted to his grandma’s letter in the intervention and, man, the followup was amazing! how well articulated guy he is when he’s not under influence of pills.

    Well, I searched for him on the internet and he seem to be doing fine! He is not very active in social media, but his girlfriend has lots of photos of their family (i hope the link works here):

    They have 2 kids and both of them are SO. ADORABLE. <3
    We can see also some interaction with his twin sister and mom. Hope he got sucess in found his real self, developing his talents with music and living his dreams.

    i decided to post this here for you to be as happy as i am for him <3 Sorry for my bad english hahah

    He’s ALIVE, no idea if he’s clean though. After looking at that posted Facebook link, I figured out his last name is “Sorto”. He’s employed at Realtor’s office. Last one on the contacts page:

    At the same start where he was in his car saying he is a music producer, worked with artists, Sony records etc – I thought he was in some exotic sports car and then it zooms out and it’s a shit box lol.
