          Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness ” 20 percent who have this disease will die. Dr. Phil continues his discussion with two families dealing with 26-year-old daughters who are battling eating disorders. Tom, Donna and their daughter, Erika, fear for the life of Meagan, who weighs just 73 pounds. Will they be able to convince Meagan to go to a treatment center to get well? Plus, see an update on former guest, Jennifer!

          Catch up on what you missed in Part 1!

          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?  


          “I’m doing everything I can to mess up your world.”
