Buy Me a Coffee

Season 16, Episode 10

Jasmine

Age: 26
Location:  Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada
Addiction: Fentanyl

What’s Memorable: Damn, that followup. She looked so much healthier, it was amazing.

Official Synopsis: Jasmine was extremely close to her grandparents, Reg and Pauline, so when Pauline suddenly passed away, Jasmine couldn’t cope and turned to opioids to erase the pain. Amazingly, Jasmine got control of her addiction and her life gained some new additions: a new career, a new boyfriend and a new baby. But when her relationship became abusive, Jasmine descended back into drugs. After losing custody of her three-year-old son, her use escalated to smoking fentanyl, a habit that costs her $1200 a day. As her family readies themselves for the intervention, they get devastating news: Reg has cancer.

Date Aired:  January 2017
Interventionist:
Maureen

    Any updates on her? I thought she was a sweet girl underneath her addiction. You could see how much she loved her grandmother, grandfather and her son. I hope she is well!

    I was so hoping to see her doing well. Unfortunately, it looks like she may have had a relapse in 2020, in which she committed some serious crimes The fact that she is pregnant in this article and date matches up with her Facebook page. Very sad.

      “The lawyer said that since the incident, Legault has sought help form Monarch Recovery, the Freedom from Addiction program, and the Pregnancy Parenting Outreach program.

      “She was severely addicted last year,” he said. “She is still on the methadone program.”

      Toffoli also produced a letter from Legault’s doctor indicating the doctor was happy with the progress she was making. He noted that Legault is currently living with her mother, who accompanied her in court Thursday.”

      I am so sad to see this turn of events. Hopefully she is successful from this point forward.
