Rod Espudo from "Intervention" is one of the interventionists in the A&E reality docu-series.

Born and raised in Riverside, California, addiction specialist Rod Espudo has carried out 629 interventions in his 21 years of practice. Over time Rod has become the "interventionist of choice" in the music, television, and motion picture industries. His clients have ranged in age from twelve to eighty-six years old. He likens his role as an interventionist to a conductor of an orchestra, believing he is responsible for leading a range of "noisy" human emotions to facilitate harmonious clarity for the addict.

Espudo was intervened upon in 1988 after struggling with a 10- year addiction to absinthe, crystal meth, and heroin. After successfully completing long-term treatment, he began an extension program at the University of California, Riverside in Basic Drug & Alcohol Studies and working at Holman Professional Counseling Centers. He has also attended Terence Gorsky classes dealing with Relapse Prevention, Post Incarceration Syndrome and Denial Management.

In his spare time, Espudo competes in amateur golf tournaments and enjoys spending time with his 5 1/2 year-old daughter, Emma. He has been living in the Los Angeles area for the past 18 years.
