A&E Cancels Intervention TV Show

aetvinterventionFor many years the reality show Intervention on A&E drew millions of people to watch as family members and intervention counselors worked to convince people to enter into treatment for substance abuse problems. It was considered a groundbreaking show by many respects, and despite any criticism, it has helped many people regain sobriety as well as increase awareness for addiction and mental health issues.

The show is finishing out its final five episodes in June and July on Thursday nights, capping a run of 13 seasons. The show won an Emmy® for Outstanding Reality Series in 2009, and has won a PRISM award five times.

The network states that the series has conducted 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, and that 156 individuals are currently sober. This is definitely something that the producers should be proud of.

As long as there are people trying to cope with substance abuse and mental health issues, there will always be a need for some outside assistance. If you’re seeking help for a loved one, contact an intervention specialist today.

Mike Loverde

As a Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), member of NAATP, NAADAC, and accredited by the Pennsylvania Certification Board, Mike Loverde knows first-hand what it’s like to live life with addiction. By overcoming it, he had a calling to work with others who struggle with drug and alcohol addictions—the people who use and the families who feel helpless watching them decay.

With thousands of interventions across the United States done and many more to come, Loverde continues to own the intervention space, since 2005, by working with medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and others who need expert assistance for their patients who need intervention. To further his impact on behavioral health and maximize intervention effectiveness, Loverde is near completion of a Masters in Addiction Studies (MHS) accreditation, as well as a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC), and is committed to attaining the designation of a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).
