Intervention is an American television series that premiered on A&E in March 2005, and it ran for a total of 21 seasons before ending in July 2021. The show is centered around the idea of an intervention, wherein a group of family members and friends come together to confront someone they love about their addiction.

Each episode of the show features a different addict and their story. The show focuses on a wide range of addictions, including drug and alcohol addiction, as well as addiction to gambling, sex, food, and more. The show offers a candid look at the realities of addiction, illustrating how it can impact individuals, families, and communities.

Host Jeff VanVonderen and addiction specialist Candy Finnigan lead the interventions, working with families and friends to plan and execute the intervention. Before the intervention takes place, the addict's loved ones are interviewed and share their experiences with the addict's addiction. They also talk about how the addiction has impacted their lives and relationships.

The show then zooms in on the addict's story, featuring interviews with the addict and their loved ones, as well as footage of the addict engaging in their addictive behaviors. The footage captures the toll that the addiction takes on the addict's life, documenting both the highs and the lows of their addiction.

As the episode builds towards the intervention, the show highlights the challenges of confronting an addict about their addiction. This can be an emotionally charged process, and there is always the risk that the addict will not be receptive to the intervention.

However, when the intervention takes place, it is often a transformative moment. The addict is confronted with the reality of their addiction and the impact it is having on those around them. The interventionists offer the addict the opportunity to go to treatment, and the show follows the addict's journey to recovery.

Throughout the show, there is a clear emphasis on the importance of seeking professional help for addiction. The interventions are carefully planned and executed with the help of addiction specialists, and the show offers resources for those struggling with addiction.

Ultimately, Intervention is a powerful and emotional show that shines a light on the realities of addiction. It offers a raw and unfiltered look at the impact of addiction, while also showing that there is hope for recovery. It is a must-watch for anyone interested in addiction, recovery, and the human experience.

Intervention is a series that is currently running and has 25 seasons (394 episodes). The series first aired on March 6, 2005.
