    She’s an entitled brat ! 😑

  2. Pochely: on June 7, 2023 at 12:30 pm

    She’s such a liar, and so manipulative she acts like she’s so helpful when she creates the problems to begin with

  3. Dawn Walker on June 7, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    Say no,your enabling her.

  4. Andi Leigh on June 7, 2023 at 12:33 pm

    Her dad is absolutely enabling her. She is infuriating.
    Stop giving her money!!!!!!
    WHY would you give her a check instead of driving her to the bank, going inside WITH her, and handing THEM the check without her ever having access to it? 🤦🏼

    I haven’t watched the video but I was suprised at the lack of sensitivity for the thumbnail/screen still used to promote the video. Drug/substance addiction is an incredibly ugly situation that can be more complicated then we want to admit. Using a picture like that (regardless of what the individual has done or gone thru) perpetuates shame and embarrassment to the point people do NOT want to seek help. Each addiction situation is very individual a d incredible sensitive. I find it not only irresponsible, but incredibly unprofessional.

    Boo hooo… Daddy left but she was still able to see and talk to him… My kids were 7 & 12 when their Dad DIED!! …

  7. Jason L on June 7, 2023 at 12:36 pm

    Wait , they don’t know she’s using , but they give her 1000$ a week for Suboxone ? They definitely know she’s using , they probably just don’t want to admit it. Suboxone will never ever ever cost 1000$ a week. How can you be so naive.

  8. Cassy420Blaze on June 7, 2023 at 12:37 pm

    6:35 I’m really not sure how you can talk to your own daughter that way. So now I know why she’s on drugs. This is such a shame. We shouldn’t judge people with addiction because it’s literally a disease that needs to be treated. You wouldn’t treat your daughter that had cancer that way would you? The parents are the problem, not her.

  9. Rockston KILMOR on June 7, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    If DAD’s so worried about her keeping the check money for herself; GO WITH HER???DUH

  10. Marisa Drechsler on June 7, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    I’m sorry I can’t have sympathy for her,she is weak

  11. C Song on June 7, 2023 at 12:40 pm

    Isn’t this an old video? I swear I’ve seen it before already.

  12. Kurayami on June 7, 2023 at 12:41 pm

    I just don’t understand how people even try this stuff once 🤦🏿‍♂️

  13. DJ Jones on June 7, 2023 at 12:42 pm

    Shiiieeet her dad is actually very attractive 😜 I’ll be her step mom ANY day of the week lmaooo hey daddy 😍

  14. samantha gloff on June 7, 2023 at 12:43 pm

    This was me in the height of my alcoholism. Making up stories to get money for my alcohol. I’m so glad I’m sober. And i thank god every day my parents are still here for me. They are truly angels on earth.

  15. Shay Castelino on June 7, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    so proud of her

  16. Y McCormack on June 7, 2023 at 12:46 pm

    At some point you have to stop Dad..choose you

  17. musicmamma on June 7, 2023 at 12:46 pm

    Sometimes toughlove is best.

  18. Sydney Wileman on June 7, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    How does she have a car? How does she have a place to live? Enablers.

  19. P C on June 7, 2023 at 12:50 pm

    meanwhile her father and grandfather are clearly severe alcoholics

  20. Zack White on June 7, 2023 at 12:51 pm

    Bro Suboxone saved my life. I’ve had a couple of heart surgeries and it worked for me. I know it’s not for everyone but it works for me

  21. kimberly quinones on June 7, 2023 at 12:54 pm

    My ex’s family is like this. Three members robbed the family blind–stealing cars, pawning family heirlooms, stealing credit cards and cash, year after year. No security was good enough, and nothing but lies and schemes all day to get the money for their fix. They’d sell their own kids if they could for the next high, and they’d give nothing but excuses for why they were addicts…but it’s nothing but a choice. No one holds a gun to their heads and makes them choose drugs. They do it all on their own.
    Samantha had the guilt trip poor me act down pat, and she put her dad through the wringer. He should have done her a favor by calling the cops and let her get sober the hard way. Maybe then she’d get a taste of the true pain she put him through.

  22. Lis Weldi on June 7, 2023 at 12:55 pm

    Jesus ! She’s beautiful! I hope to goodness she’s still doing great! ❤️

  23. IC on June 7, 2023 at 12:56 pm

    FINALLY. I have tried for YEARS to watch this full episode, literal YEARS. This one is a rare episode. Thank y’all for posting it finally. I have seen the overdrawn bank account scene soooooo many times.

  24. Mr Kipling on June 7, 2023 at 12:58 pm

    People need to realise that addiction is an illness. Addicts don’t want to do the things they do to get money, they need to do it.

  25. Ellie Callahan on June 7, 2023 at 12:59 pm

    She may have had an addiction to theft too…

  26. BIGMOUSE12 on June 7, 2023 at 12:59 pm

    Don’t blame your father for your addiction!!

  27. Ella Doz on June 7, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    When a person dies from a drug overdose and there’s no family, friends to call for help that’s when it’s the end of the road 😔 sad but True ♥️🙏. Realize your family and does love and care about you

  28. Matt grelee on June 7, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    I wish my family gave me 120$ everyday when I was using drugs lol

  29. Joe G on June 7, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    This is likely going to be a controversial comment. I can see now why the daughter continues to take heroin. All she wanted was acceptance and love but since she didn’t get what she wanted, she’s now getting the dislike and shame from her own father, which whom she craves love from the beginning of birth.

  30. Katie Lou 🌸 on June 7, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    I commend her for being honest to her dad despite the agony experienced in telling him the truth and to sit in discomfort while he yells at her some awful things in the heat of anger. That’s a hard part of addiction as the addict and the people that enable and still love and support the person in active addiction.

  31. Ghost Rider 33 on June 7, 2023 at 1:05 pm

    Just get a 6 pack and become a geek nerd and online gamer ! It works for me great escape from reality just limit the 6 pack to about 2 week and eat heathy food ! 🫵

  32. Kim on June 7, 2023 at 1:05 pm

    The dad had to know it’s not for Suboxone. Living with an addict, you just know. It’s something you disassociate from because it makes you feel better about giving them money. You know. It’s complex and you lie to yourself in order to get through the day. It seems like her family truly loves her. Her dad is her number one friend! He’s got her back. I’m so happy she’s well now.

  33. derek stamper on June 7, 2023 at 1:07 pm

    My mom wouldn’t help me with $300 extra for rent one month when I broke my foot! Duck these POS

  34. Joe Malone on June 7, 2023 at 1:09 pm

    I’m not trying to put blame on people but her father is definitely codependent and most likely has always been and when you grow up in a codependent relationship like that you can often develop abandonment issues yourself codependency and addiction and or narcissism

  35. Mandy on June 7, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    This was hard to watch. The dad was way too harsh.

  36. Eric R on June 7, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    This is the parents fault for spoiling this adult child. I don’t feel bad for them. She’s completely entitled

  37. chief 1 redwolf on June 7, 2023 at 1:12 pm

    You will know the truth 📖nkjv and the truth will set you free John 8:32. Look up scripture that deals with where you are struggling. Memorize, live and be free 🕊

  38. Terra Albritton on June 7, 2023 at 1:12 pm

    Addiction is so awful. I don’t understand why they don’t want to get help. They have to be talked into it with consequences. She was so gracious at the end and about going to intervention. I am so proud of her!

  39. Chaznad on June 7, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Part of me wants to feel bad because her lousy personality stems from her addiction BUT still no excuse…she beats up on the only people that care for her , it’s disgusting

    I hope the family don’t give her the home n land because she will 100% sell it. If they love her and want her to succeed , sell it all and move somewhere she knows nobody and give her a fresh start.
    Ultimately it will come down to her REALLY wanting to quit vs kinda wanting to quit…
    Many addicts are weak mentally and say they wanna quit but don’t like the work it
    Comes with. They want it to just happen on its own and everything stops , it’s not that easy

  40. Jordan Enzie on June 7, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    When is intervention going to make a show from this decade? 2014 was 9 years ago, come on

  41. Steven W. on June 7, 2023 at 1:15 pm

    Everytime i try watching this show my anxiety goes through the roof and i have to turn it off its just to much

  42. Angelica Delaney on June 7, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    Lying about what your using the money for your addition is so scummy. The dad shouldn’t be enabling her for that long but interesting tead get her some help

  43. Darren Rieger on June 7, 2023 at 1:18 pm

    WOW! Sam is so kind inside, friendly, smart and could become anything that she wants to be. This one was particularly hard to watch and heartbreaking because it shows that drugs can take anyone away, no matter who, or how strong the person may be. I hope she is doing well!

  44. Mike the Mechanic on June 7, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    I don’t get why people get hooked on oxy etc. I did it for 4 years and quit. I would only take 1-2 that it. And on a day off a few times a month. You have to approach drugs that they are dangerous and will kill you. As a teen I did not do drugs. I was scared. I did not do drugs till my late 30s. Don’t do drugs till you are older and have a house and family first.

  45. Catharine Du Plessis on June 7, 2023 at 1:21 pm

    SHE IS SHAMELESS. Throw her out!!!

  46. Adam M on June 7, 2023 at 1:23 pm

    “I wish you would die he says.” 😂 what a transformation! I can understand his anger though and hope she’s still well seems like a loving family.

  47. zeloacraft : on June 7, 2023 at 1:23 pm

    My God, shes beautiful. I hope she stays clean.

    When you know the dealer is stocked up and you’re imagining getting those glistening $20s.. all you have to do is beg and lie and be pathetic to your own Dad. He hands over the money for the 50th time and you walk away in utter disgust and shame to blow the money on a high that’ll be over in a day or 2 and you’re back to square one.

  50. zDan on June 7, 2023 at 1:28 pm

    I completely understand the father’s anger – and he’s justified to feel that way. She manipulated and lied her way through his fatherly love of doing everything for her. My step sister was the exact same to my step mother. A liar, a cheater and an addict who would come up with ridiculous stories as to why she needs money… money for ice
