    Yes the woman at 36 looks rough, but even a non drug user is not going to look as fresh faced and dewy TWENTY-THREE years later….like they have NO pictures that are a little closer in age?

    Why would Dr. Phil think a heroin addict would travel without drugs to keep from getting dope sick? Like why was he shocked about that? You also can't just walk into a methadone clinic in another state and get free help. Its very expensive if you don't have insurance. It's not the parents fault this adult woman traveled with drugs.

    They are lying they knew

  • Reply MrsFoley 1 February 3, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    She looked 30 at 13. Plus, the parents just wanted to make it clear that they didn’t know she was smuggling. Unfocused.

    Not a fan of this episode because of how hostile dr Phil was with these parents…

  • Reply Jillian M February 3, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Wait…Dr. Phil, do you understand how opioid withdrawal goes? She would absolutely get dope sick. Now, I’m not saying there weren’t other ways of avoiding her getting sick—there’s methadone, as the father suggested. He also belittles the power of the disease of addiction. Again, he shouldn’t be advocating it, but degrading the person while discussing their addiction does not help.

    I often find Dr. Phil is just looking for shock lines that will get a reaction from the audience. Truly disgusting.

  • Reply Jillian M February 3, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    It’s always so frustrating me that Dr. Phil closes down the comment section (“for the sake of the guests”) when in actuality, I believe he’s afraid of receiving any criticism.

    dr phils way of dealing with the parents is kinda sad coz clearly they are distraught and don’t know what to do; and are clearly aware they are enabling her but are past knowing how to fix that. they are here for him to help them with that not shame them for what they failed to do?

  • Reply Pamela Santiago February 3, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    For him to say that she would not have gotten sick if she didn’t smuggle it is a lie she absolutely will get sick and severely ill. I don’t know what he thought was gonna happen with his show he wouldn’t have been able to do it if she didn’t have her fix. I don’t think he understands how drugs work or this drug in particular but you get really sick if you don’t have it daily. I get that they had set up a methadone program but I think that is something that needs to be introduced when she’s ready to get clean not just to be on the show because she may have very well still endured withdrawals even with the methadone while they adjust and find the right dose.

    Anyone else been noticing that for about the past year, people that come on the show say “I didn’t say that” or “I didn’t say it like that”? I know it’s happened in the past, but more so recently.

    Sometimes being called out is ideal in certain circumstances. It's calling out the truth. People like to deny things. Hopefully she had a wake up call and so did they on how the drugs are killing their kid.

  • Reply Breakneck February 3, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    If Phil thinks you can wake up a heroin addict and not use heroin and not hey sick then he absolutely doesn't know wtf he's talking about.

    Addicts wake up after 8 hours of sleep and haven't used for 8 hours!
    ANY heroin addict is starting to get sick after 8 hours of not taking anything.

    It's what drives the addiction Phil!
    How can't you know that???

    I find it interesting that some people are pissed off at Dr Phil…but not either the heroin addict or her enabling parents??? Dr Phil talking sweetly or gently, at this stage of the game is pointless. No doubt others have done the softly, softly approach… Without any success. You can't break through the barriers of 'denial' that way. Dr Phil is on the right track.

  • Reply Pennylane is Almost famous February 4, 2020 at 6:25 am

    let me sum up ALL/ANY Dr.Phil episodes for you

    • he states the person or families issues
    • the people seeking help get interviewed
    • he brings them on stage to act like he knows everything even though he lost his license years ago
    • he constantly tries to make each party look stupid
    • they discuss the problems
    • he brings out coach Mike or one of the doctors on the Dr.Phil advisory board
    • then they put their 2 cents in as far as what should happen
    • then the guests either go to the ranch, rehab, get a life coach, go to a mental facility, get xtra therapy, go to one of those hiking programs & that’s about it. (I might be missing one or two other things but that’s the gist of it.

    More and more I am disappointed in how he treats some of his guests. He seems to do it more and more. Let’s beat home the laws broken by flying with drugs. The first 3 times he said it over and over, they denied knowing that they knew. The 4th time he mellowed. Beat them first and make them insecure. Then he tries to challenge the guest he is trying to start a fight. She never opened her mouth or said a word. She was being respectful and waiting until he was done talking. Makes me so upset. He is taking advantage of the ones struggling. When he is bully he makes me so mad. When he is kind and heartfelt he shows me why I watch him. But those moments are becoming fewer and farther between others. So sad, he does have a great opportunity to teach. Wish he wouldn’t abuse his fame.

  • Reply prmad0nna February 5, 2020 at 3:43 am

    BELIEVE IT OR NOT DR. PHILLIAM MCNAHH, most addicts DO smuggle drugs across states if they’re going on vacation because they WILL get sick without them Dr. SMARTASS .. does he not know anything about withdrawls ? some addicts who use needles can literally start feeling sick within hours of their last use and honestly it’s in humane to just let someone suffer like that from heroin withdrawls ! with alcohol and benzo withdrawls, you can literally get a seizure and die because of the receptors craving more but lacking it so in that case, YES they DO need their drugs because I doubt a first aid kit in the sky will satisfy their damaged receptors. Another thing is that rehabs don’t even let you suffer cold turkey from withdrawals, they’ll give u a maintenance drug to feel normal so it’ll satisfy your receptors and then taper you down safely. Honestly I would do the same thing if I knew I was going to be sick in a couple hours, especially on an airplane and the pressure of the flight, things can get bad really fast..

He's just giving them a realty check !! Just because thèse people seem well to do and put together doesn't mean they get a free pass when it comes to not helping their drug-addicted child !!

  • Reply SteelCity1981 February 6, 2020 at 4:28 pm

    Her daughter needs to go to federal prison. This whole given people choices to go to rehab or prison is stupid, because the vast majority of these addicts don't stop after they get out of rehab because they were forced to go to rehab to avoid going to prison. People only stop being drug addicts when they choose to want to stop, and not when they are forced to stop.
