      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.

    Heres a really in depth newspaper article written in 2015 about Terry being on Intervention. http://www.gjsentinel.com/news/articles/a-business-owner-millionaire-and-philanthropist-te

    Thanks Melissa. Good to see they are doing well

    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.
