Intervention And African Americans.


Intervention is a powerful and gripping television series in which people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. The Intervention Television series profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. This show touches my heart because I think about my own son and his denial of a drug problem.

Each Intervention episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the alcohol of drug addict, and which is conducted by one of four Intervention specialists. Why aren't more Africa American feature on the show? Is it the lack of finances or we don't think we need the help? When it come to stupid stuff like the Flavor of Love or I love New York we are not short on people who want to be part of this mess. So what's up with this? I think the show help raise the awareness about the alternatives and treatment options available to those who suffer from alcohol or drug addiction.
