A&E Network will premiere a special new season of the Emmy® Award-winning and critically-acclaimed docuseries Intervention. For the first time in series history, this season will follow interconnected stories of addicts and their families suffering at the hands of the national opioid crisis. Living in a cluster of communities within the affluent Atlanta suburbs known as “The Heroin Triangle,” the families chronicled highlight the desperate need for support and help during this national drug emergency.
Intervention profiles people whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behavior has brought them to the brink of destruction and has devastated their family and friends. This season focuses on the journey of those plagued by their opioid addictions and their families who are left to pick up the pieces, as well as the city officials who are on the ground fighting as they attempt to intervene and save the lives of those affected as well as help heal the community. Veteran interventionists Candy Finnigan, Ken Seeley, and Donna Chavous partner with interventionist and Georgia native, Heather Hayes, as well as new team member, Michael Gonzales as they face the biggest challenge of their careers and attempt to help these victims of addiction.
The theme song of Intervention is “Five Steps” from the album “Speaking of the Davenports” by the band The Davenports. For more information visit their web site.
