The show follows real addicts and raises awareness of the treatment options available to alcoholics and drug addicts.

For those that don’t know much about the intervention process, Burr Cook, of Family Intervention Now, answers: What is an Intervention?An intervention is a deliberate process of bringing a family together with a professional to lead them, to educate them, to guide them and unite them through the process of intervening on behalf of a loved one’s addiction. More specifically, an intervention is a deliberate and structured process of bringing a group together to address a harmful or destructive behavior and to provide a solution for the person engaging in that behavior. Typically the group consists of family, friends, co-workers. The behaviors are usually drug and alcohol abuse, but can be gambling, sex, eating disorders, mental illness etc.
