Exclusive: Mark Your Calendars Because a New Season of ‘Intervention’ Returns This Summer

In need of a new summer show? Look no further. A&E’s Emmy-winning series Intervention returns on Tuesday, August 6, with a brand new season. This time, the episodes will focus specifically on the ever-growing drug epidemic in various cities and neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Watch the exclusive sneak peek above for more. Warning: This video may be disturbing to some viewers.

In a press release obtained by In Touch, the CDC revealed that, shockingly, more than 130 people in the United States die from a drug overdose every day. As a result, the show will revolve around those plagued by their opioid addictions and their families in what is dubbed Philadelphia’s “Heroin Hub.” Interventionists Ken Seeley, Donna Chavous, Heather Hayes, Michael Gonzalez and Jim Reidy face the biggest challenge of their careers as they attempt to help nine victims get clean and gain control over their lives.

According to the clip, “Philadelphia County suffers one of the highest rates of drug overdoses in the country,” the narrator reveals. “The neighborhood of Kensington is Ground Zero.”

As one interventionist says, “This is Armageddon. It’s complete chaos.”

Will the victims get the help they need? Tune in to find out.

Intervention‘s one-hour season premiere airs on A&E Tuesday, August 6, at 9 p.m. ET.
