TLC has announced it has ordered Addicted, a new Intervention-like docu-reality series that will follow individuals as they struggle with substance abuse before receiving help from an interventionist.

"This is a series about family, change and hope," said TLC President Eileen O'Neill.

"Addicted is a raw and authentic portrait of addiction in America and while viewers will see the brutal battle for sobriety, it ultimately demonstrates the importance of substance abuse treatment -- and makes for powerful television."

Each one-hour episode of Addicted will follow a different individual as he or she struggles with addiction, while also looking at how it is impacting their life and their loved ones.

With the help of family members and friends, the addict will then participate in an intervention led by interventionist and former addict Kristina Wandzilak, who will attempt to put them on the road to recovery.

"Addiction happens to good people and decent families all the time," said Wandzilak. "I know how to change a life, and I know how to live better. I can do that. I am an example of it, and if I can do it, anyone can."

TLC has ordered six episodes of the series, which is currently slated to debut in March. Addicted is being produced by Asylum Entertainment.

New Intervention eighth-season episodes currently air on A&E in the Mondays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot. The series won Outstanding Reality Program honors during the 2009 Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony in September.
