A&E NETWORK'S AWARD-WINNING SERIES "INTERVENTION" RETURNS FOR A SEVENTH SEASON MONDAY, MAY 25 AT 9PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY, MAY 5, 2009 � The 2008 Emmy-nominee for Outstanding Reality Program, A&E's series "Intervention," which profiles people who are struggling with addictions and the friends and family members who are seeking to help them, returns for a seventh season with all new episodes beginning on Monday, May 25 at 9:00pm ET/PT.

The new season of the four-time Prism Award-winning series will feature some of the most compelling stories to date including: a fireman traumatized by a fire that nearly took his life and the partner he rescued who is desperate to save him from alcoholism; a young man adopted from India at age 3 who refuses to accept the love of his adoptive family and is losing his life to heroin addiction; anorexic identical twins who would rather die than lose the title of being the thinner sister; and a young man whose picture-perfect suburban life was shattered by the Columbine High School massacre 10 years ago struggling with feelings of sadness and guilt and an addiction to heroin and cocaine.

"Intervention" is a powerful and gripping series in which people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. The series profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the addict, and which is conducted by one of three specialists: Jeff VanVonderen, Candy Finnigan and Ken Seeley. Exclusive updated interviews with past subjects from the series first six seasons are available on AETV.com/intervention.

The series has conducted 125 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, 102 individuals are currently sober. In its sixth season "Intervention" averaged 2.1 million total viewers, 1.4 million A25-54 and 1.5 million A18-49. The series is A&E's #1 program among these demos.

Inspired by the incredible response from viewers, individuals and families in recovery to the series, A&E Network along with leading federal agencies and non-profit organizations launched The Recovery Project. The multi-year, multi-platform initiative was designed to help raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible. This past September more than 5,000 people, including Individuals and families in recovery, treatment partners and advocates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, gathered in New York City for a historic walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to symbolize unity and hope for recovery. The walk ended in City Hall Park and was followed by a rally featuring public speakers and musical performances. This year's rally and walk will take place in New York City on September 12th .

A&E continues to co-host, along with the Partnership for a Drug Free America (PDFA), and leading MSOs such as Time Warner Cable, Cox and Comcast, Intervention Town Hall meetings in cities across the country. The Town Hall meetings offer opportunities for parents, teens, addicts, government officials, health professionals, substance abuse prevention experts and educators to develop a better understanding about the root causes and consequences of addiction.

Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway are the executive producers for A&E Network. INTERVENTION is produced for A&E Network by GRB. Dan Partland and Sam Mettler are executive producers. The series was created by Sam Mettler.
