Do You Think the Show “Intervention” Does More Harm or Good?

Question by blaukrieg: Do you think the show “Intervention” does more harm or good?
I’m thinking back on the episode about Allison the huffer who used duster to get high, and I have read numerous accounts of people (I’m guessing teens, but who knows?) not believing it, but then trying it BECAUSE of the episode. I somehow doubt that many people with real-life addiction problems get help from this show, but this episode in particular may have done more harm than good.
