The 5 Most Unforgettable Episodes of Intervention

Intervention starts its final season tonight on A&E after eight years and almost 200 episodes, each one as frightening and heartbreaking as the last. The show's subjects came from every possible social demographic, from supportive and stable families to dysfunctional, abusive ones. What Intervention did best, though, was show the person behind the addiction — a person with a sense of humor, a set of values, an identity that was getting subsumed in their addiction crisis. Some episodes of the show were overwhelmingly tragic, some incredibly frustrating, and some made us want to leap through the television, grab people by the shoulders, and shout "stop blaming your child for being the victim of sexual abuse." And other episodes? Well, some we'll never forget.
