Interview, Excerpt


The intervention was supposed to help Barbara's family---not thrust them into a new nightmare. But when her 18-year-old daughter, Emily, is escorted to drug treatment, the therapist is murdered and Emily vanishes. Barbara and her 14-year-old son are frantic. The police think Emily's the killer---but what if they're wrong? And where is she now? 352 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
     

 

 Intervention Discussion Questions: Terri Blackstock


 

1.     Did Intervention give you any insight into what families endure with addicted loved ones? What moved you the most about Barbara’s situation? What would you do in her situation?

 


2.     According to her journals, how does Emily view her mother? Does she blame her for her addiction? Do others judge Barbara’s parenting because of her daughter’s behavior?

 


3.     What characters in the story suffer at the hands of Emily’s addiction, and how are they impacted? Would you call addiction a family illness?

 


4.     After finding out about what happened to Sara Leigh at Road Back, Barbara realizes she made a mistake by choosing a rehab too quickly. What could she have done differently? How does Road Back’s method of dealing with drug addiction differ from Greg Leigh’s? What are the downsides of each approach?

 


5.     Barbara believes that our culture sows addiction into its young. Do you agree with her? What beliefs and attitudes does society instill in its children that could contribute to addiction? Can Christians minimize the negative effects of these beliefs and attitudes in their children? If so, how?

 


6.     How did Emily’s previous visits to rehab only make her addictions worse? What causes her to finally decide that she wants to get better? Do you think true healing from addiction requires more than rehab can offer?

 


7.     Greg’s ex-wife Joan deals with the death of their daughter very differently than he does. What does Joan do to cope with her grief? How does this guard her against the bitterness that plagues Greg? What does this say about the importance of faith and support groups?

 


8.     Barbara tells Kent that she hopes good will eventually result from Emily’s hardship. Do you think Emily’s life will have a more defined purpose because of her suffering and addiction? Have you or someone you know ever experienced good as a direct result from pain?
