In this debut episode, the residents of Intervention House are on an emotional edge when 30 year-old crack addict "Brenda" disappears; newly-arrived cocaine addict "Russ" reveals a secret about the depths to which his addicted girlfriend has fallen; and chronic alcoholic "Cheryl" moves in after drinking mouth wash and blacking-out. Melba also faces a personal crisis when she attempts to reunite with her gay son after more than a year of estrangement.
