** There are also a significant number of addicts featured who grew up in a home where one or both parents were addicted to drugs or alcohol. Naturally this creates some deeply unhealthy relationships that often include abuse and neglect.

* FallenHero: Several addicts were exceptional students and/or shining citizens, then again no one would want to watch the show if all anyone had to say about the addict featured was that they're an asshole.
** Notably, Jeff [=VanVonderen=], one of the show's stable of interventionists, suffered a relapse of his own and took a leave of absence in Season 5 to work on his own sobriety. He returned the next year, healthy and happy, and continued with the show through the end of Season 13. When the show returned in 2015, he did as well.

* GenkiGirl: Allison, an inhalant addict, is an incredibly dark example "I'm walkin' on sunshine," indeed.

* UnwittingPawn: In many episodes, the addict's family members have fallen into patterns of co-dependent/enabling behavior without realizing it. Taken to its extreme in an August 2011 episode; the addict's grandparents, who were largely responsible for getting her onto the show, called her just before the intervention to tell her what was about to happen. The interventionist then asked them not to participate, and the meeting turned into a shouting match in the street.

During each episode, we'll see the addicts (or addict if there's only one) being followed around by a camera crew as they go about their daily lives and cope with their addictions. Towards the end, they will face the intervention, where their loved ones will implore that they get help or else they'll have to put their foot down. The addict will then either decide to go to rehab or will refuse treatment. If there's enough time between filming and airing the episode, the viewers can occasionally see what happened since the filming wrapped. There have also been a few episodes strictly devoted to following up with past addicts.
