There is a program on A&E network on cable that I watch, it is called Intervention. It is a documentary on persons that are battling some kind of addiction. These people were filmed not knowing that their families asked for some intervention with a professional counselor. These people thought that they were being filmed for a documentary on their addiction. They are all battling different kinds of addiction: alcohol, gambling, food, shopping and drugs. With drug addicts, their families ask the person to go into a drug treatment center. If they refuse, then their families usually tell the person that he or she will not have any contact whatsoever. Usually, the person involved will get upset at the start, but at the end, they concede and go to drug rehab. This is a very intense show and sometimes graphic. But it is something that people need to know more about.
