          Addictions

          June 25, 2004

          It’s a silent epidemic that could be hidden by your sister, your best friend, even your wife. Dr. Phil delivers a wake-up call to some guests with very dangerous addictions.

          Vicodin
          A highly addictive painkiller has a hold on JoAnn, who takes 20 extra-strength pills a day just to feel normal.


          “Your whole life is a lie,” Dr. Phil tells JoAnn. 


          Ephedrine
          Laura’s 11-year addiction to an over-the-counter drug has caused her to lie to everyone she knows and has even landed her in the hospital for a blood transfusion.


          “You are dying as you sit there before me today,” Dr. Phil tells Laura.
           Update: How is she doing now?


          Sex
          Anne is a sex addict who’s had more than 200 partners, putting her health and her life in danger.



          “It has nothing to do with sex,” Dr. Phil tells Anne.
