HVRC and Sage Retreat Featured on A&E's Intervention

Jackie's Story

Once known as the "prettiest girl in town," Jackie had a promising career as a radiation therapist. She became a wealthy doctor's wife, a country club member and a proud mother.

But Jackie was haunted by childhood traumas. She was devasted when her father dies when she was 13. And as an overweight adolescent, she was teased wth the nickname, "Fat Jack" and felt she was never as good as her pretty sister.

After Jackie's second pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, she turned to alcohol. She's had three failed stints in rehab and an ugly divorce. Prior to treatment, Jackie drank two bottles of wine a day.

Today, Jackie is 125 days clean and sober, "feeling good and is happy but would be happier if she had her daughter in her life." She currently resides in California.
This episode, filmed at our Hemet, CA faciity, will chronicle the treatment of patient Jackie.

Tune into A&E network on Monday, January 11th 9:00 pm PST (the episode will also re-run Tuesday, January 12th 1:00 am PST)

  1. I watched Jackie's story last evening. It was interesting, thought provoking. We just never know what is going to impact our children. A lot of what ifs...I do wish the show could show a bit more on the recovering Jackie and her thoughts about HVRC. Maybe there will be a follow-up on A & E.
