A&E’s acclaimed addiction series “Intervention” has been cancelled after 13 seasons.

The network announced Thursday that the Emmy-winning series is coming to an end and the final five episodes will begin airing on Thursday, June 13 at 9/8c on A&E. The series finale marks the show’s 243rd intervention in eight years.

“As ‘Intervention’ comes to an end, we’re proud to have paved the way for such an original and groundbreaking series,” said David McKillop, executive vice president of programming for the network. “We’re honored to have been a part of the 243 interventions since its premiere in March of 2005, leading to the 156 individuals that are currently sober to this day.”

“Intervention’s” limited run this summer will feature “some of the most intense and gripping stories of the series,” the network says.

According to the press release: “The premiere episode introduces Jessica, a 29-year-old woman squatting in an abandoned house with no electricity or running water on the West side of Chicago. Jessica copes with her past by injecting heroin, a drug that was introduced to her by her own father.

The 14th and final season will also feature: “Dana, a mother addicted painkillers and crack cocaine after a tragic fire turned her world upside down; Gina, a 34-year-old woman who uses heroin to escape the memories of her past; Kaila, a young girl suffering from a fatal eating disorder; Ryan, a 23-year-old who turned to drugs as a way of coping with his mother’s sudden suicide; and Eric, the once funny and generous son who has transformed into a junkie that hustles, steals and pawns to scrape together enough money for his fix.”
