Intervention Canada

Intervention Canada is a five-part documentary series that takes the viewer deep inside the roller coaster of addiction. From a Winnipeg family determined to rescue their talented musician son from a deadly crystal meth addiction to a Hamilton family's struggle to save their daughter from the grips of an addiction to computer keyboard duster, the series provides an unflinching glimpse at the horrifying reality of the life of an addict, as well as the gut-wrenching toll their addiction takes on their family and friends. With the help of returning interventionists Andrew Galloway and Maureen Brine, each episode culminates in a dramatic intervention where 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.
