S22E6 Lexi

Season 22 Episode 6

Lexi
Age: 27
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Addiction:  Heroin, Meth

Official Synopsis: After being seduced at a young age by the notorious party scene of Las Vegas, Lexi got clean and started a family of her own, only to lose it all to a dangerous meth and heroin addiction

What’s Memorable:  The many mugshots, the motel living, that crazy smoke/snort utensil, the relapsing on heroin at 7 months pregnant, “Yes I love my daughter more than the heroin but it’s so much more complicated than that.”  I couldn’t decide on what the possible “Addiction Trigger” would be for Lexi. Didn’t seem like there really was one, other than just being around people using drugs?

Date Aired: April 19, 2021

Interventionist:  Dave Marlon

    I mean it’s obvious it was her dad leaving for work that was a huge trigger.

    I also found it interesting that they had the intervention on her birthday (I don’t believe that’s ever happened on the show before). Had she relapsed that could’ve been disasterous as she would always have that association (I lost my dream job four years ago on my mom’s birthday, so I can relate in a way).

    The Vegas interventionist, Dave Marlon, handled this intervention quite deftly, I think. He seems to be a fine addition to the regular crew of interventionists. In fact, I found this episode to be one of the most especially-memorable episodes in some time. Kudos to all. I wanted to give poor, lost Lexi a big hug. This episode amplifies (for me) how some addicts simply drift into addiction. No trigger necessary. Sometimes, it’s just boredom, poverty, unfortunate life circumstances. It just…happens. And when the addict realizes they are hooked, it’s so often too late for self-help. Best of luck to Lexi. She seems like a beautiful person. I hope she realizes that, too.

    I hope for the best…but I have a sinking feeling about her.

      Lexi’s mother and father didn’t recognize that they both had drinking problems and, in my opinion, weren’t very convincing in their bottom lines. I wish the best for Lexi and hopes she stays away from Las Vegas.

      Me too :/

      Same. She has never had a job, dropped out of middle school, has been an addict over half her life, has never had a relationship that wasn’t toxic…living sober is going to be so foreign for her.

        In the show the mom said she used to work at a diner in New York and it was good money

    It’s such an uphill climb when people have been addicts throughout really important identity establishing years but it CAN be done. I wish Lexi the best.

    Super cool that she has a special day to remember her sobriety date; being on her birthday! That has to be the best gift someone can get on any day let alone on their birthday… If I could say anything to Lexi, it would be that I’ve been in her shoes with the meth, heroin, and prostitution/ Las Vegas street life- so I know the struggle; but I also know that sobriety can be achieved (14 months here). Congrats on making the choice to stay sober and you go gurl. Haterz goin to hate. U just keep doin you! 😘💋

    I think Lexi is pretty, she really looks like Mariska Hargitay from SVU.

    I saw a lot of clear triggers for her addiction, but the clearest one is that she was groomed by an older man and she was basically indoctrinated into his cult. She was so young and doing so many hard drugs that she was doomed after that. No one in her family helped her out of that, and she would have needed a LOT of intensive treatment. Do you not see how her being taken in by that man as the same as when girls are assaulted?
