Could family intervention save Michael Jackson?

According to reports and television interviews, Michael Jackson's family stated they did try interventions with the popular King of Pop. However, in a recent interview given by former wife Lisa Marie Presley with Oprah Winfrey, Presley stated that the singer could simply "ice you out" whenever he decided, making it extremely difficult for many to intervene. "Icing" a loved one or friend "out" according to Lisa Marie, simply meant to cut you off and out of his life. If you live in South Carolina and suffer from any form of addiction, including insomnia drug use see: Drug Addiction South Carolina.

This isn't exactly unheard of with many drug addicts, however with the money and access afforded only the rich and famous it is highly effective. While Jackson's physician does bear a great deal of the blame, the truth is, Jackson was not going to be deterred in his acquiring the drug Propofol.
Dr. Conrad Murray will no doubt be found guilty in his part of this deadly lifestyle, however one has
to wonder, what more could have been done?

In cases like this, those closest to Jackson might have considered the children's welfare. Although
by most accounts Jackson was a wonderful father, the truth is, an addict, even a famous one can not
be beyond reproach. If an addict engages in a behavior that can ultimately cause an untimely death,
this is negligence on some level. Should someone have raised these questions to the proper authorities, child welfare, etc. and might we have seen a different outcome in Michael Jackson's life?

Presley also stated in the same interview that on many occasions where Jackson was on television she could tell he was under the influence. Perhaps during the time when he so carelessly dangled his infant son from a balcony in Berlin, the red flag was waving prominently. Again, one has to ask, if child protective services had intervened, would this have made a difference? Had this been anyone else, surely an investigation would have ensued. In summary, the death of Michael Jackson was fostered by more than just one person, there were many that could have done more, and getting “iced out” may have been worth it to not only spare the singer's life, but spare his children of the grief and loss they suffered as well.
