Intervention Stars Who Sadly Died

Megan Wood’s story aired during Season 10 of “Intervention.” The 27-year-old’s childhood had been traumatic. Her parents divorced when she was 3 and her mom, Laurie, remarried. Megan’s stepfather abused her emotionally and physically, but Laurie admittedly chose to “try to keep it together” rather than go through another divorce. After Megan left home, though, Laurie became the target of his rage, and she quickly filed for divorce. Megan’s anger over her mom’s refusal to protect her was all-consuming. “It was on the heels of that, that my drug use absolutely exploded,” she admitted.

During her first week of college, Megan started by taking mushrooms. “I felt like I could just breathe. I felt free,” she explained. Megan graduated to shooting up cocaine and heroin, in addition to popping Xanax, Oxycodone, and Dilaudid. She turned to sex work to help fund her $120 a day habit. “I’m just going to continue to get higher and higher and higher until I kill myself,” Megan vowed.

Megan’s intervention resulted in her going to rehab. “I feel good, I feel really good,” she said after two months of treatment. Megan acknowledged she needed to let go of her “resentment” towards Laurie. She wanted to get her Ph.D. and “live a normal life.” After leaving rehab, she moved to North Carolina to continue working on her sobriety. However, as per The Journal Times, Megan died in February 2014 after overdosing on heroin.
