Intervention Canada

About the Show

Based on the hit A+E format, INTERVENTION CANADA, now in its second season on CBC documentary Channel, is a one-hour docu-series that takes the viewer deep inside the roller coaster of addiction. 

From a family in Halifax determined to rescue their talented athlete daughter from a deadly crack cocaine addiction to three Ontario born brothers struggling to save their mother from the grips of crippling alcoholism, 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 interventionists Andrew Galloway, Maureen Brine, Jesse Hanson and Geri Bemister 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.
