Intervention is an American television reality show dealing with the struggles faced by many different kinds of addicts. Each episode follows one or two participants, each of whom has a substance dependence or other mentally and/or physically damaging problem. The subjects believe they are being filmed for a documentary on their problem, but their situations are actually being documented in anticipation of an intervention by family and/or friends. During the intervention, each participant is given an ultimatum: go into rehabilitation immediately, or risk losing contact, income, or other privileges from the loved ones who instigated the intervention. Often, other tactics are used to persuade the addicted person into treatment, which vary depending on the situation; some of these include threats to invoke outstanding arrest warrants, applying for custody of the addict's children, foreclosing on the addict's property, and break-up of marriages or other relationships. The producers usually follow up months later to monitor the addicted person's progress and film it for "follow-up" episodes of the series or for shorter "web updates" available on the show's website.
The interventionists arrive at Philadelphia's "Heroin Hub" and meet Nicole, a 39-year-old heroin addict and prostitute who's lived in the area for five years, and Janine, a 22-year-old addict whose father recently died from a fatal overdose.
Donna Chavous must rethink Janine's intervention now that she's in jail; Jim Reidy meets with Nicole's family and learns how she ended up on the streets; the city of Philadelphia organizes a mass eviction to remove addicts from Kensington.
Alana tries to stay sober while maintaining a relationship with her addict boyfriend; Nicole's fiancé's reaction to Nicole getting help throws her whole intervention into question; addict Amanda risks losing custody of her 2-year-old son.
Michael Gonzales strategizes with Bill's family on ways to intervene once Bill is released from jail; Alana's mother suspects that Alana may have relapsed and kicks her out of her home; Janine must decide if she's ready to get clean.
