When I first wrote about the planned series here, Peggy from the blog Helplessly Hoping left an interesting comment about her communication with the star of the show, “interventionist” Kristina Wandzilak. Read her comment here.
As I wrote to Peggy in a reply to her comment at the time:
An intervention is of limited value without a realistic, effective treatment plan that is acceptable to the person seeking recovery.
I think the drama is in the intervention (and the TV interest), but the post-intervention plan is also important.
I’ll be watching for the quality of the post-intervention plan when I watch the show…hopefully, they will include that information, but I suspect they will just say they are sending the person to an expensive residential treatment program.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of the program.
