DESCRIPTION: (from Nat Geo WILD's press release, January 2014) Imagine not being able to support your family or love your spouse, or feeling like you have lost all control of your life. Your loved ones don't know what to do. You feel alone. Is there hope? Can you get your life back? Will you be able to feel alive again? With the help of adventure and survival expert Tim Medvetz, Americans around the country who have hit rock bottom are discovering themselves through a rigorous three-day wildlife intervention adventure forcing them to face their fears and problems head on. Going Wild premieres with back-to-back episodes Monday, March 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD. We're packing our bags to tag along with host Tim Medvetz and ordinary people stuck in extraordinary ruts, who embark on epic physical, mental and emotional journeys that brings them closer to nature and, at the same time, closer to their true selves. After hearing from their loved ones, Tim drops in unsuspectingly to take everyday people away from the monotony of their lives and throws them into remote and unforgiving locations.
