          Dr. Phil's Get Real Retreat

          November 06, 2008

          Part 2


          Dr. Phil continues his intense three-day retreat with 14 people who say they’re ready to change their lives. Struggling with issues such as addiction, anger, abuse and grief, guests confront their personal demons once and for all. 


          See what you missed in Part 1. 



          “When times are tough ” like they are now ” we tend to lose sight of ourselves,” Dr. Phil says. “So why not do something about it? Why not change your life for the better starting right now. I want you to say, ‘This hour is for me,’ because if you take this journey with me and these 14 amazing human beings, it will make you stronger, see things with more clarity and will create peace in your life.”
