Intervention is definitely one of the more serious shows that I really get into. There is something so raw and real about the show.
If you’ve never had an opportunity to tune in to A&E when the show is on, it’s definitely one of those shows that you just do not want to miss, especially if you have ever dealt with an addict in your life or have been in someone’s life who was either dealing with an addiction or dealing with a loved one with an addiction. It can definitely give you an insider’s look that is so true and to the point and they certainly don’t try to censor this show. Needless to say, it’s not one you want to sit down and watch with your children, but it could be a great segway into a drugs or alcohol discussion with your teen.
Okay, but back to the show. Each show features a different addict who is struggling with some kind of addiction– anything from alcohol, drugs, eating disorders, cutting. It follows these people in their lives, and they are unaware that they are going to be a part of an intervention, and rather think that they are filming a documentary.
The season premiere is not an exception to this format, and in fact, it looks to be great. Straight from A&E’s website, they give a short description of Monday’s upcoming show:
“When he was three, Gabe’s mother abandoned him on the streets of Calcutta, but he was adopted by a young American couple. Gabe seemed happy in America, but he secretly felt like an outsider. In high school he started to rebel and resent his Christian upbringing. He began using marijuana and cocaine, and later graduated to heroin. Then he squandered all of the $37,500 he received after a car accident to support his drug habit. Now the family fears that without an intervention, Gabe’s addiction and depression will soon lead to his death.”
Don’t miss it. It sounds like another sad, but true and heart felt show.
