          Drug Testing

          Alex was hurt in a serious car accident over a year ago. Her family claims she’s abusing the medication she was prescribed to combat the pain, but Alex maintains she’s drug free.


          Will Alex agree to submit to random drug testing?


          Disturbing News

          Dr. Phil receives an e-mail with serious and troubling allegations about Alex and her boyfriend, Tony. He takes immediate action.


          “I knew something was wrong with that baby.”


          The Custody Battle Begins
          Dr. Phil’s number one goal is to ensure that Alex’s children, Nathan and Leilah, are safe. He speaks with Erin before she appears in front of a judge to offer advice for the emergency custody hearing.


          Find out who else is fighting for custody of Leilah, and why Alex was a no-show in the courtroom.


          Dr. Phil Confronts Alex
          Alex didn’t appear in court for the custody hearing of Leilah. When Dr. Phil calls her to find out why, the conversation turns tense. And, Alex and her lawyer join Dr. Phil to give details about her warrant, and she makes a shocking statement about the pictures of Leilah.


          “Don’t say something that you don’t really mean.”
