What Episode Was That?

“I swear there was an episode where the guy was an alcoholic pilot and was trying to mentor a protégé but was drunk and made no sense, do you remember who that was?”

Yes! That was Robin, Intervention Canada, Season 21.

    It was a Canadian episode, a man with a wife and a few kids. He worked as a carpenter or something and was good at his job… and soon as he got home, he’d drink like 30 beers, argue with his wife, punch holes in the wall. Wake up the next morning started again. Can’t remember his name! Thanks for the help!

    PS — what a great idea to start this page!

      I wonder if you meant Kent? I can’t find his episode on this site but here is an IMDb link – https://m.imdb.com/title/tt4800876/

      I like this idea for a q&a section, too! Thank you so much for all your hard work, Dizzy.

        Sadly most of the early Intervention Canada episodes are unavailable in the US.

        Yes, Kent! Thank you!

        I didn’t realize they weren’t available anymore.

    Dizzy, the other day before recent comments got lost you were asking about a girlfriend named Alex. That would have been Joshua Turek who died in 2017. His gf was Alex.

      Thank you!

    Hi Dizzy. I sent you an email about this before I discovered this page. I am looking for a guy, I believe he was an alcoholic. The only scene I remember from the show is that he lived in his mom’s basement (?) and as he was returning to his room, he fell down the stairs. The camera crew missed him falling but you could certainly here him bumping into stuff. When the camera finally caught up to him, he was at the bottom of the stairwell groaning. Please help! Thanks!

      I’m afraid we are going to have many such occurrences of someone intoxicated falling down the stairs. One such occurrence was Andrew, in an Intervention Canada episode. Andrew was addicted to crack and alcohol. I know that Andrew did well after the show for a while, but then relapsed at one point and then I kind of lost track. [edit] I just remembered that Andrew was homeless then came back living with his grandparents, not his mother, while his family was getting ready for the intervention.

    Dizzy, you need to add Tamela from season 1 to the Less Common Addictions under self injury. She was actually the first one that was highlighted for self harm.

      I’ve never seen anyone on this show that is a cutter like Tamela. OMG it was so hard for me to watch her doing that to herself. Especially the one scene where she’s a bloody mess.

    Hey y’all!
    I just went through all of the alcoholic episodes and can’t find this one I remember: they are in the intervention and she asks for a break to use the restroom. She goes in there and chugs a fifth of vodka she has in her purse.
    Y’all remember this one?

    1. Dizzy

      I think that was Kristen in Season 2 – http://intervention-directory.com/2011/12/episode-19-kristen/

      She’s under the Heroin category because that was her primary, but I do remember her getting drunk on liquor at the intervention.

    2. Holly Berry

      It could also be Jennifer. If I recall correctly she took some pills in the bathroom too.

    Where the family member says “JVV”! during the intervention.

    BTW, whatever happened to JVV?

      1. MR B

        Thanks!

        It’s been a long time since some of these episodes, I wonder how some of these people are doing?

    What episode was it where the addict’s mom thought she was like a reincarnation of her recently deceased daughter
