Great Show
26 January 2006 | by angelalyn14612See all my reviews

I am not the reality show kind of chick...or at least I wasn't. This show is the best. The people know their are taping a documentary about their addictions but don't know about the intervention. Its actually kind of scary to know that people actually go through different addictions and see how it affects them mentally and physically. I always cry (happy tears) when the intervention comes and they end up going to get help.

They always do follow ups as well letting us know how the treatment went and if they are still doing good. Very inspirational and it shows that even the "strongest" can be even stronger getting help and overcoming their addictions! I love this show!
