A&E Network will tackle the national opioid crisis in the next season of Intervention.

For the first time in the series’ history, this season will follow interconnected stories of addicts and their families. Set within a cluster of communities in the affluent Atlanta suburbs known as ‘The Heroin Triangle,’ this season of Intervention aims to shine a light on the families’ need for support.

Produced by GRB Entertainment, the season will also follow city officials who are trying to save the lives of those affected. Veteran interventionists Candy Finnigan, Ken Seeley and Donna Chavous partner with Georgian interventionist Heather Hayes and new team member Michael Gonzales as they attempt to help victims of addiction.

Intervention executive producers for GRB Entertainment are Gary R. Benz and Tom Greenhut. Executive producers for A&E Network are Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro and Brad Holcman. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for the series.

The two-hour season premiere of Intervention airs on Jan. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on A&E.
