Who didn’t go to treatment?

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.

    1. Stefan

      Sean died so his family obviously does.

    2. Stefan

      Larry is in prison for the foreseeable future so hopefully he regrets not going.

      1. Brenda

        Is this the music producer who had a band once?

  2. Bob

    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

    1. Stefan

      And surprisingly he stayed with his girlfriend and they’ve since had a child.

    2. Stefan

      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?

    1. Stefan

      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.

    1. Dizzy

      I thought that she went to treatment later though?

      1. kittynyc

        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.

      2. Stefan

        An update at the end said that she went to treatment in August of 2006.

    2. Sue Ellen Hegstrom

      she passed away not long ago…check her episode’s entry.

  5. Stefan

    Alissa eventually broke up with her boyfriend and has since remarried. She claims to have significantly reduced her gambling.

  6. Stefan

    Marquel remarried and had another daughter. She claims to have stopped drinking.

    1. Stefan

      Also, she apparently did two months in jail for a DUI charge not long after her episode aired.

  7. Stefan

    Alissa actually did attend Gamblers Anonymous meetings, but I take it that doesn’t count as treatment.

    1. Brenda

      Treatment has medical professionals. Otherwise, those are just meetings. They do count as aftercare.

  8. Stefan

    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?

    1. Stefan

      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?

  9. Stefan

    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.

    1. Stefan

      Nevermind I’m thinking of Dennis. Funny enough the episode came up on my Youtube page today as a recommendation. Thanks again Ramoin!!!

  10. Owen

    I don’t think Fabian went…?

    1. Stefan

      He did but didn’t stay long.

  11. Courtney

    Richard from Intervention Canada didn’t go.

    1. Stefan

      He eventually did go and is now sober.

  12. Marni

    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

    1. Stefan

      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.

      1. Kitty Katt

        Ken wasn’t Katie’s Interventionist.

      2. Brenda

        No, it was Christy. Very early episode. I believe she ended up going on the show too, but was such a behavior problem they asked her to leave. Dad flew her home.

    2. Kitty Katt

      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.

      1. Kitty Katt

        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.

  13. Stefan

    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.

    1. Brenda

      You are correct. She didn’t go.
