Mr. Ferrero,

The executive producers of the show received your letter and appreciate your thoughtful comments.  They are very concerned about the integrity of the interventions we conduct and the information we provide to the public.

There is a strict division on "Intervention" between the television professionals and the clinical professionals.  Ms. Chavous is a BRI Level II interventionist (trained at "Intervention 911") and was the ranking clinical professional at the intervention and so, was expected to conduct the intervention with the highest professional standards, and without direction from the show's producers. The executive producers are taking your concerns about Ms. Chavous very seriously and will review her overall conduct with appropriate clinical professionals.

If there are any specific inaccuracies in the language concerning the Marchman Act (in text on screen) in the "COURTNEY" episode (or specific inaccuracies that Ms. Chavous articulated), the executive producers would be grateful for your feedback.

Many thanks,
The Intervention Team
