Plot Synopsis

From the creator of INTERVENTION, this one-hour series features subjects who believe they are participating in a documentary about their life of crime, but instead face an intervention that offers only two choices: accept treatment or face the possibility of prison time. Each surprise intervention is conducted by Darren Kavinoky, a criminal defense attorney and certified intervention professional, whose insights into illegal behavior are based not only in professional clinical interest -- but, also his personal experience fighting his own addictions to drugs and alcohol, and committing crimes that led him to handcuffs, himself. Following real criminals through their daily lives and revealing the devastation their behavior has brought to themselves, their families and friends, each 60-minute episode of BREAKING POINT features a different person, including: Alex, 26, who has two different identities -- Bang$, a violent criminal, and Bella, a money-hungry prostitute; Sahara, a 23-year-old make-up enthusiast, who lives with her boyfriend Matt in a rundown motel outside of Palm Springs, CA; Pierce, 26, who regularly engages in stealing, conning, and petty crime to support his meth addiction; and more criminals who face a life-changing decision.
