The roller coaster of addiction. With the help of interventionists, the subject must make a life-and-death decision - continue their descent to rock bottom alone, or accept the offer of a clear path to recovery in one of Canada's top addiction treatment facilities.
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!
