A&E PRESENTS THE FINAL FIVE EPISODES OF "INTERVENTION" BEGINNING JUNE 13 AT 9PM ET/PT

SERIES FINALE MARKS SERIES' 243RD INTERVENTION IN EIGHT YEARS

NEW YORK, NY, MAY 23, 2013 - After thirteen seasons, spanning more than eight years, A&E's Emmy Award-winning series "Intervention" returns for its final five episodes. The culmination of the groundbreaking series begins on Thursday, June 13 at 9PM ET/PT.

"As 'Intervention' comes to an end, we're proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series," said David McKillop, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E Network and BIO Channel. "We're honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day."

The final season of "Intervention" will feature some of the most intense and gripping stories of the series. The premiere episode introduces Jessica, a 29-year-old woman squatting in an abandoned house with no electricity or running water on the West side of Chicago. Jessica copes with her past by injecting heroin, a drug that was introduced to her by her own father.

The final season 14 will also feature Dana, a mother addicted painkillers and crack cocaine after a tragic fire turned her world upside down; Gina, a 34-year-old woman who uses heroin to escape the memories of her past; Kaila, a young girl suffering from a fatal eating disorder; Ryan, a 23-year-old who turned to drugs as a way of coping with his mother's sudden suicide; and Eric, the once funny and generous son who has transformed into a junkie that hustles, steals and pawns to scrape together enough money for his fix.

Addiction specialists, and fan favorites, Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan and Donna Chavous each return for the series' final chapter, along with Ken Seeley who comes back for one of the most difficult and dramatic episodes in the series' history.

Twice nominated and in 2009 awarded the Emmy(R) for Outstanding Reality Series, the five-time PRISM Award-winning series "Intervention" brings attention to the enormous social, economic and environmental cost of drug addiction, alcohol abuse and compulsive behavior. Each episode follows addicts through their daily life and the devastation their dependency has brought to their family and friends. Upon reaching the brink, their loved ones stage a surprise intervention conducted by one of four specialists. In the end, they are pushed to get the help they so desperately need with the hope of turning their lives around before it's too late.

"Intervention" is produced by GRB Entertainment for A&E Network. Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Dan Partland are executive producers. Sam Mettler is executive consultant. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Holcman.
