          A United Front
          Three months ago, Sue, Allan and their daughter, Abby, sought Dr. Phil’s help for Jennifer, who was battling anorexia and bulimia and weighed only 90 pounds. They share with Meagan’s family what they’ve learned while Jennifer was in treatment and how they can take their lives back and stop enabling the disease. Find out how Jennifer is doing now. 


          “I won’t give up, but I also won’t enable the disease anymore.” 

           


           

          Giving Up Control
          Dr. Phil addresses Tom’s biggest fear about what caused Meagan’s illness. And, Meagan rejoins the discussion. Will she give up control and say yes to treatment?
