I wanted to forward this to you to share with your groups. I have also copied Lisa Bay Adam. She is looking for folks that are struggling with addictions directly related to 9/11 (or had addictions before and they got worse because of 9/11). I love this TV show and have seen them help many people overcome addictions (Drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc.) Pls feel free to contact her if you think someone may need some help, this is a great chance for them to get their life back. I fully endorse this program - Intervention.

I have sent a few other messages out to the survivors network, will let you know what I come up with.

Kindest regards, Linda Gormley

Hi Linda. Thanks again for your time and support today. I really enjoyed our
phone conversation.

As discussed, I am looking to open up a dialogue with individuals and/or
organizations who deal on a consistent basis with those who may be
struggling with the traumatic impact of 9/11 and as a result, have turned to

I'm sure you know most of this information, but here are a few highlights:

INTERVENTION on A&E ­ www.interventiontv.com. Feel free to check out and
familiarize yourself with the simple online application to be a part of the
show - http://www.aetv.com/intervention/participate/

* Documentary-style TV series which offers scholarship treatment
* Many people suffer from addiction (in silence)
* Wešre looking to highlight the realities of the situation/trauma
* Nearly a 100% intake process
* Over 80% of our subjects are currently not using
* Work with nearly 100 of the top treatment centers in the US
* We have won the Prism Award for several years - the Prism Award is given
to those programs on television that provide education and social awareness
to viewers
* We have been nominated for an Emmy three times for our work with addicts
and their families
* We are utilized in clinics, rehabs and youth centers as an educational
tool, and we are getting amazing feedback from addiction specialists who are
stunned by the educational value and SUCCESS of our interventions

I believe there is real educational value that could come with telling a
9/11 story - it was an event that affected every single person, obviously,
some more than others.

Thank you for your willingness to maintain a confidential dialogue with me
about possible candidates/families who might be willing to explore
Intervention as a possible resource. I appreciate any introductions you are
willing to facilitate.

Warm Regards,

Lisa Bay Adams

Casting Producer
