Intervention is an Emmy award winning series on A&E, dealing with the struggles faced by people with different kinds of addictions. Each episode follows one or two participants with a substance dependence, or other type of severe addiction. The subjects believe they are being filmed for a documentary on their problem, but in actuality an intervention has been planned by family and/or friends. During the intervention, each participant is given an ultimatum: go into rehabilitation immediately, or risk losing contact, income, or other privileges from their loved ones. Addicts are offered a chance to undergo a 90-day, all-expenses-paid treatment plan at one of a number of rehabilitation facilities.
