Season 22 Episode 2
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Official Synopsis: After a series of tragic losses, Tristan relocates to Las Vegas for a construction career only to become an alcoholic. (Oh come on, they can do better than that!)
What’s Memorable: The intense family dynamics that linger from what happened with their brother, Tristan’s terrifying hair-trigger anger and violence, the fact that he really cannot believe his family loves him. I honestly didn’t think for a minute he was gonna stay in treatment, so that 87 days later was so beautiful! It’s crazy how even after 22 seasons you can still never predict who’s going to take to rehab and who isn’t.
Interventionist: Michael Gonzales, last seen on the Heroin Triangle season I believe. He did a great job with this one, effectively navigated some really sensitive stuff. Hope we see more of him.
