Alex was an out-of-control 14-year-old who was stealing, running away, doing drugs and prostituting herself to older men when her family asked Dr. Phil to intervene. Catch up on what you missed and see exclusive footage from inside The Dr. Phil House!
After a tumultuous stay in The Dr. Phil House, Alex comes to terms with having to leave immediately for the Academy of the Sierras, a therapeutic school where she can focus on getting healthy.
Six weeks have passed since Alex left for the academy, and her family returned home without her. How is she adjusting to a new structured environment?
While Alex has been away, her family has been trying to make changes so that her home life is healthier when she returns. Have Kim, Jeanette and Enza put aside their angry accusations and come together once and for all?
Kim and Jeanette have been struggling to live under the same roof. Kim has resentments from her childhood that she can’t let go of, and Jeanette feels disrespected.
