Dude said:I like the show, but last nights episode was a loss. It just didnt focus enough on her actual use... was she a chronic pain patient turned additc? Street buyer? What? How much does she use?
And it made out like you can die from opiate withdrawl, which I didnt *think* was true.
I didnt care for this one.
StayinAwake said:I have seen a few of them and the only one that seemed real was the one where he was shooting up oxycontins. I don't remember his name. It just seemed real because they were showing photos of him when he was younger and he looked "healthy" if you could call it that. Then in time, he really started to look bad because he was shooting it 24-7.
ellua said:the only one i thought seemed fake was the one where the guy figured out that he was on intervention and not some other documentary, and they had to hurry and intervene asap...

Sadly only 15% of addicts ever make it into rehab... And the number for the people that actually STAY sober is much much less. Its sad but true...firesilverlullaby said:i think its a good show, its just sad how many of them relapse.

And yes, I've made things up with my mother and we have a good relationship now, although she doesn't know that I'm still using (chipping, no habit).
I wondered this to but sometimes it does go into a part about how they make they're money...Ungoliath said:I have a question.......
Does the show buy them the drugss (if it were real) seems like alot of these people would be sober and sick alot more if there wasnt a camera around, they always seem to get a nice lil score when the cameras roll, if so, thats pretty fucking immoral

They filmed the one guy that used to be a 4 star chef stealing out the cash drop parking boxes. Then at the intervention he said he needed to go score one more time if he was gonna go, one of his friends drove him downtown, did his business and got on the plane... i dont know if the friend or the interventionist paid for the last shot though
then on another one fabian i think was his name said he needed something like 40 bucks or something to pay someone or maybe it was enough money for a 40? and the intervention leader said if thats all it would take for him to go they'd give it to him
