Everything You Need to Know About 'Intervention Canada'

Ever wish you could talk to an interventionist about what you just saw on 'Intervention'? The addictive show, which offers a window into the life of an addict, often leaves viewers thinking and talking about what they just saw for hours -- or even days -- after watching.

'Intervention Canada' is debuting this week on Slice, and AOL TV jumped at the chance to preview an episode and discuss it with one of the show's interventionists, Maureen Brine, and producer Karen Wookey. We decided to bring along superfan Trish Appleyard, a Kingston, Ont.-based lawyer, to represent 'Intervention's devoted fanbase in this unique discussion.

The episode we screened featured Andrew, a lovable young Windsor man who found himself sleeping behind dumpsters after his crack addiction led him to rock bottom. His older sister and grandparents desperately want him to kick the habit and get his life back on track. His troubled mother Leela also wants the best for him, but she's facing demons of her own. This moving episode culminates in a surprising double intervention -- something Brine and the producers didn't see coming.

This is an update to a special that aired not long after 9/11, and told the story of Engine 7 Ladder 1. It's also the only special that has footage of the first plane hitting Tower One. As astounding as it may seem, there is a whole generation of young people out there who did not see it happen the first time and are old enough now to watch and understand.
