Season 22, Episode 19 (Intervention Canada)
Location: Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
Official Synopsis: Elann has suffered through more loss than most 28-year-olds. Unable to process the untimely deaths of her father and brother, Elann obliterates her emotions with an ever-present bottle of vodka. Seeing her daughter’s mental health in steep decline, Elann’s mother believes this intervention is the only hope of pulling her back from the abyss.
What’s Memorable: There were the things that I thought were going to be memorable and then the final screen happened and nothing I thought mattered mattered anymore. “Things can only go up from here. We both have so much to look forward to now” Elann said right before the screen told us what happened after treatment. Shocking and devastating, and so tragic. I can’t stop thinking about how she was sober for her final months before she took her life but was in so much deep pain from everything she had been through that not even sobriety could save her. And I can’t stop thinking about her mother. I just…have no words.
Elann Christine Masters died of intentional overdose at age 30 on March 5, 2019.
