I’m finishing up on entering all the data I need in order to start crunching numbers and finding statistics and patterns, which I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I want to verify who ended up not going to treatment at all and I thought you might be able to help, instead of me having to go back and re-watch episodes.
Here are all the addicts I know of who did NOT attend treatment. If they didn’t attend treatment right after the intervention but the followup said they eventually went, they shouldn’t be on this list. These are only the folks who, at the end of the episode, still had not agreed to treatment and never went as far as we know.
Am I missing anyone?
It would be interesting to know if any of the surviving addicts now regret refusing the opportunity.
Sean died so his family obviously does.
Larry is in prison for the foreseeable future so hopefully he regrets not going.
Is this the music producer who had a band once?
I remember seeing Adam’s episode on TV with a new update saying that he was no longer drinking, but I’m not sure if that was because of treatment or other means
And surprisingly he stayed with his girlfriend and they’ve since had a child.
I just found out that said update is from 2011, so who knows what’s going on with him.
Did Katie go? The booty bumping meth/heroin camgirl?
Yup but she quickly relapsed and is now in prison.
Betsy- the missing episode alcoholic. She got on the plane with her boyfriend but they had a connecting flight and decided not to go.
I thought that she went to treatment later though?
She didn’t go on the episode (at least originially, maybe there was an updated on I missed). Though from her social media profiles she is with her family a lot so either she eventually went or they didn’t stick to their bottom lines.
An update at the end said that she went to treatment in August of 2006.
she passed away not long ago…check her episode’s entry.
Alissa eventually broke up with her boyfriend and has since remarried. She claims to have significantly reduced her gambling.
Marquel remarried and had another daughter. She claims to have stopped drinking.
Also, she apparently did two months in jail for a DUI charge not long after her episode aired.
Alissa actually did attend Gamblers Anonymous meetings, but I take it that doesn’t count as treatment.
The show’s original series finale (Eric) ended by saying that 238 of the 243 people profiled went to treatment, so this list is accurate. I don’t believe anyone since the show was brought back hasn’t gone correct?
According to this, Zac from the Heroin Triangle refused treatment. Does anyone know if he’s since gone?
Also, did Taylor ever go before she passed away?
What about the one guy who was a realtor and pastor? I thought he ended up skipping out on his way to treatment like Sean.
Nevermind I’m thinking of Dennis. Funny enough the episode came up on my Youtube page today as a recommendation. Thanks again Ramoin!!!
I don’t think Fabian went…?
He did but didn’t stay long.
Richard from Intervention Canada didn’t go.
He eventually did go and is now sober.
What about this girl who lived in squalor in an apt, I forget what drug it was, but I think she was a dancer/prostitute. Ken Seeley was her Interventionist. She has dark har, I want to say her name with Christy or something ….earlier seasons of Intervention
Katie Y is who you’re thinking of. She did go but didn’t last long as it was like her 15th attempt at rehab.
Ken wasn’t Katie’s Interventionist.
Everything you mention except for the dark hair is Cristy. Her sister had dark hair. Cristy did have dark hair in certain pictures that they showed of her but during the intervention it was over-processed, do-it-yourself, bleached white hair with dark roots.
Forgot to add…..Cristy did got to treatment but didn’t last the 90 days. She ended up doing 90 days in prison and soon relapsed after getting out. She hasn’t been sober ever since.
Tina (aka the Amber Rose showboating episode) didn’t go at the end of the episode and unless there are any updates I assume she hasn’t gone.
You are correct. She didn’t go.
