Ok so they don’t do whole followup episodes anymore unfortunately, but they do the Skype “Legacy” updates. So let’s say we have a say in who Intervention reaches out to next. Who do you most hope to see on a future Legacy segment?
This will be done in several parts so that there aren’t too many to choose from. I couldn’t include every single person that’s ever been on the show, so I had to narrow it down. The people who will be listed in these polls will have 1) not already had a follow up episode or Legacy update 2) have not provided updates here (meaning we know how they’re doing based on their comments) and 3) are the ones who have gotten at least a few “where are they now, does anyone have an update” comments. If there’s someone you know meets those requirements and they aren’t listed, let me know and I’ll add them to the poll.
If there’s someone listed here that DOESN’T meet those qualifications, just assume that I know that and I included them for a reason.
Vote! This is PART 4, Seasons 9-10. PART 1 is here, PART 2 is here, PART 3 is here.
Also hey, I figured out how to make each choice clickable so you can go to the episode page in a new tab if you don’t remember who it is. I’m so clever!
Well if you want a update, I won’t name names but here it is. Sarah & Mikeal went to there respective rehabs did well but then Sarah cheated on Mikeal causing him to relapse. She stayed in Texas as far as I know, Mikeal returned to Ohio spent some time in Michigan. Continuous battles with substance abuse left Mikeal powerless to fend for himself. He got help and as far as it looks like he’s doing good. Now Darick as one poster said appears to be living his dream with a family of his own.
I take issue with the statement “Sarah cheated on Mikeal causing him to relapse.” She might have cheated; she might not – I don’t know them. But Mikeal’s sobriety is his responsibility. If he relapsed after infidelity on the part of his partner, that’s not her fault. It could have been a trigger or a contributing factor, but ultimately, it’s Mikeal’s disease and Mikeal’s recovery.
Luke was one addict that I really found myself rooting for. He’d been treated like feces by his stepfather during his entire childhood and turned to drugs and alcohol in his teens, and eventually found himself hooked on crack and living on the streets. His toxic relationship with his mother (who, driven by her guilt over how she let her husband mistreat her son, grew into perhaps the worst case of codependency ever shown on the program) didn’t help matters either. But he seemed to do very well in treatment and seems to have embraced sobriety.
I’d love to know about Cassie
I voted for Erin just because her marriage struck me as so odd that I really want to know if she and her husband have made it work or not.
Going by her Facebook page, it seems it wasn’t the case unfortunately.
