    1. Dizzy

      Oops, nevermind. Looks like I don’t have Alissa up here. I was confusing her and Britney. Will work on straightening that out shortly.

    I think Terry is my favorite person ever featured on the show. I hope he is doing ok now.

    1. Wanda Mellette

      Terry’s story, along with his two sons, was the most moving story I have ever seen on Intervention. Any updates?

      1. Ellen Hebn

        I agree. Watching it again now and crying for both families.

    2. Kate

      I agree, He seems like a great guy with a wonderful family.

        God bless you sir! You are a walking testimony for God’s grace and love for you! You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

  3. Melissa

    Heres a really in depth newspaper article written in 2015 about Terry being on Intervention.

  4. Dewey

    Thanks Melissa. Good to see they are doing well

  5. Jordy

    Along with the other addict in this episode, I too think Terry deserved a full episode. Powerful story with his sons and his rags to riches to rags and so forth. This was a good one, despite his relapse.

  6. Alice Schmid

    can anyone summarize that article referenced above? link doesn’t work anymore.

  7. Brooke

      2. Marti

        I worked for you when I lived in GJ in 2008-2009. I am so Proud of you. I remember you talking about writing your story. If you still would like to do that let me know and we can work together again.
        I wish you, Chris, Sean and Theresea the best!

    I just watched Terry’s episode and it hit home, because I am a father of two boys who also suffers. It also hit closer to home because Terry is paison and he reminded me a lot of my grandfather Guido. I hope Terry is doing well 🙏
