"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."

Addiction specialists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan and Donna Chavous will return for the final episodes. Ken Seeley also returns "for one of the most difficult and dramatic episodes in the series' history."

The Season 14 premiere of "Intervention" follows Jessica, a 29-year-old woman squatting in an abandoned house on the West side of Chicago, who uses heroin, a drug introduced by her father, according to A&E.
