Anyone else watch this show? "Allison" was on lastnight. During the intervention when her Dad was reading his letter, I was crying like a baby. Woke up this morning with swollen eyes. :eek:

i try to watch it but DH says it's too depressing for him so i have to catch it on the sly. most of those episodes get me when the family confronts the abuser.

I watch it. I missed it last night, though. I think the new season starts pretty soon.

I can't watch it. We did this more than once for my brother and it really hits too close to home. Brings up way too much anger that I've spent years trying to repress.

I think it's a great show for people who haven't had this in their lives and wonder why family's can't just get their mother/brother/whatever into rehab and straightened out.

We've done this with my brother (when he was a teen) and my oldest sister more than once. Oldest sister is 47 years old and has been an alcoholic since she was about 13, and she won't get help. So I see it the other way, that is exactly why I like the show. I can totally relate.
