When producers for “Intervention: In-Depth” heard about Allison’s involvement in educating others, they decided to feature the PSA’s production in the February 1st episode of the series. You don’t have to wait until then to see it. Click here to view all three.
The PSA(s) feature the story of Allison Fogarty, whose episode of the A&E Television Series “Intervention” remains one of the most watched and controversial in the program’s history. With the help of her family, her mother Nancy and her sister Sue, Allison was able to overcome a life-threatening addiction to inhalants. Her mother Nancy says, “I firmly believe God saved Allison from this horrible addiction for a reason; to educate, to encourage and to spread hope!”
Thanks to Aristides & Alex, of NBC Productions, for their hard work and efforts in raising awareness of Inhalant Abuse. Also, thanks to Ben of Vidicom for writing and directing the PSA, and VideoLink for shooting. (Sidenote: here is a VideoLink blog post on the power of the PSA).
