The Heroin-Addict Actress, The Interventionist and a Grieving Mother’s Court Fight: “She Didn’t Want to Die”

by Scott Johnson December 08, 2016, 6:15am PST

Eight months after Warren Boyd, who helped the likes of Robert Downey Jr. and Courtney Love get clean, took on aspiring Beverly Hills actress Amy Breliant as a client, the young woman was dead. Now Boyd — along with ‘Star Wars’ actress Carrie Fisher — will face a civil lawsuit.

Two LAPD officers working the 15-ADAM-85 beat responded to a call about a suspicious death.

They came to a well-tended home in Studio City around noon on Sept. 21, 2010. In one of three bedrooms, they found Amy Breliant, an aspiring actress and model from Beverly Hills. She was slouched over on a bed wearing a blue shirt, a computer in her lap. Crime scene photos show a syringe and cellphone in one hand and a string of rosary beads around her neck. A tinfoil ball with an off-white substance, a spoon and a green lighter lay next to her. She had been dead for several hours. A roommate who had made the 911 call told the coroner he had been staying with Breliant for two months to “help her sober up and stay away from the drug scene.”

Amy was 21, beautiful, vivacious —


and a heroin addict. Seven months earlier, she had begun another attempt at sobriety under the guidance of Warren Boyd, a self-described “extreme interventionist” who tied his public image to the successful recovery of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. A convicted felon and former addict himself, Boyd reportedly had helped Robert Downey Jr. get clean. Courtney Love later hired Boyd, and paparazzi caught the two coming and going from court hearings and rehab appointments. Such Hollywood royalty as Mel Gibson and Whitney Houston reportedly had been on his client roster. In 2008, A&E aired a fictionalized version of his life called The Cleaner, starring Benjamin Bratt. In a behind-the-scenes advertorial, actor Ashley Hamilton, another client, said Boyd’s “by any means necessary” approach was harsh but effective. “Warren’s great for addicts because he can convince you you need to get sober,” said Hamilton.

But Boyd’s unorthodox intervention techniques hadn’t saved Breliant. Amy’s mother, Gianna, believes Boyd exacerbated her daughter’s heroin addiction and contributed to her death. Court records and depositions from former employees suggest that Boyd may have crossed the line from “extreme interventionist” into something more dangerous.

AMY deserves better – All those with Substance users deserve to be treated by real Doctors and real therapists. Not some ex con who thinks he is a cool 12 stepper with an edge.

  1. The real crook, swindler and scammer, …He never took care of Amy or any of his “victims” clients. He took Amy to a lots of places kidnapping her and never with healthy companions, “addicts” without control on themselves. … Kind of organized crime, That Hollywood Rubber Stamp Shop, a place for trading and trafficking girls. That Constantinescu was on “To Catch a Predator ” NBC Date Lane. …
    “boyd” The Crook!!! Is the real cleaner… He knows how to clean any suspicion on naive people who needs desperate help. … Is when “The Crook” comes to the scene… recommended by another Crooks with credibility “Doctors” who work for Boyd an ex con.
    1. Dr. Stephen Marmer head of the UCLA and is in Dennis Preger radio show Friday Happiness Hours.
    2. Dr. Gary Chase
    3. Dr. Eric Lifshitz. Those who write the prescriptions for “boyd” in the name of Victims, (clients) without even seeing the patient.
    “boyd” controls the lowest world of abuse of innocent in need using names as: The Extreme Interventionist” The Cleaner. Lack of license or authority to prescribe or inject any person.
    Lack of CARE to a person who needs to be under surveillance 24/7 by a professional and not by drug addicts sent by “boyd” to hang out with Amy doing what ever they wanted to do calling them “sober companions” with more problems than Amy and in more need to do drugs… What kind of CARING is that on someone who is paying top dollars to a Crook like “boyd” for him to screw Amy’s life like many other under his “care” placing her in the Wolf’s mouth not avoiding her to any of these situation with sick people under “boyd”‘s payroll?
    “boyd” took Amy to her death… and is something he will

    • Trial Date Change to 10/22/18; if Judge does not change her mind again or defense does not find new excuse, again.

  2. Some people need unorthodox method: When it does work, you sue them.. WTF. I know it’s a tragic in Amy’s case. Boyd help out a lot of people get sober when conventional program did not work. I believe that he did really tried, but some people are beyond help. Boyd is NOT GOD. He can’t save everyone.

    • He is untrained and should not be doing what he is doing. He is a dude who did 5 years in prison and had 9 DUI’s – He should be slinging a hammer – building a bridge- Driving Uber – ( maybe not ) , I would not trust him with my life or my children- I prefer a Phd Trained in addiction .

  3. I think its time there are regulations made on treating persons with substance Use Disorder or issues.

    These are serious matters that need professionals – not some ex addict know it all. Weather Warren or Clancy – or any persons with AA “time” who thinks because they had an addiction they now are an expert.

    They are not an expert.

    I had breast cancer – – still I prefer talking and being treated by a Real Surgeon and Real Doctor for treatment.

  4. Marky,
    You are correcct some people have the capacity to improve their brain disorder with the help of experts, while others with lay people that via research is rare and limited in length clean and sober; but it is not possible with no plan, provision/access of the very drugs you relapse from, and providing care in the capacity of a physician; when instead you are a felon. It is not possible when you hire companions 24/7 to keep one safe; instead, they “loose” the clients. It is not possible. when there is no continuity of care or coping skills taught, but a supply of neverending drugs.

    Trial date move to Oct 22; simply due to LA does nothing to assist the victims of unregulated drug treatment, but always blames the victims even if they are forced into using (DDA Passow, DDA Baxter, DA Lacey); that changes the brain diorder to survival mode. So many lost to one; why defend the actions instead take a stand – show up in court, and support the victims – Carrie Fisher, Whitney Houston, Bobbi Brown, Corey Haim, Amy Breliant, and those with no one to fight for or financially able to fight for their loved ones lost to this grossly negligent individual with only $ signs in front of his clients.

  5. I’m sad that Amy lost her battle with addiction. Don’t put the blame on Warren Boyd. Warren didn’t put the needle in Amy’ s arm. Traditional rehab has proven time and time again not to work. Heroin addiction iOS extreme and extreme measures need to be taken to end it.

    • Jane- back again for a fight I see.

      Traditional rehab is as old as the 2nd World War. Thats AA based rehab – Fails 95 % who go. Now we have Dr Drew telling ANderson Copper that rehab failing is a part of the process ! Like WTF ….

      AA rehabs are even older 1935 religious conversion , filled with two hatter AA members playing by an antiqued cultish frenzy- of AAs BillShits 12 steps of lunacy.

      Addiction in today’s America is already controlled by AA and its members and their thinking that when a person even of great wealth and fame seek help- all too often then will not receive the new science that is available.

      Warren is an ex con with no training – no knowledge of mental health care ( no PhD , no MFCC after his name , no knowledge of how medications MAT work today – He is not a Doctor . He is not a nurse. He has NO credentials what so ever and should not be telling people how to get off drugs or prescribing medication as if he were a Psychiatrist. You are barking up the wrong tree – I know Warren . I met him many times and spoke to him .

      • Addicts die, and those who use heroin (because the nature of the element) get a head start towards a demise unfortunately. Overdoses happen easier and in frequency . I’m from Hollywood and have heard of Mr. Boyd before. The message I got ,was that he’s more of a self proclaimed life-coach. Someone who earns trust well, is easy to talk to and word of mouth is how he networks around the celebrity web of clients. That maybe or may not be true , I’m not able to validate anything . Still, the question I’m left with is would this girl have overdosed or even used again if Mr. Boyd and her had never even met ? After reading previous pdf files re: Deceadants family vs Mr. Boyd ,I fail yet to see how he provided and/or fostered in the girls demise.

        One persons opinion is all , I want no fighting please
