          A House On Fire, A Dog in Flames – "Our Brother Is Out Of Control"

          September 16, 2016

          Carolyn and Laura reached out to Dr. Phil pleading for help with their brother, Matt, who they say is out-of-control and bipolar. They claim Matt self-medicates with alcohol and is repeatedly getting himself into trouble. Carolyn and Laura say that Matt’s wife, Nancy, is the reason for Matt’s manic episodes; including setting his own house on fire and leaving his dog with burns and paint marks.Nancy says that the majority of Matt’s issues stem from his mental illness and that she refuses to leave him because he doesn’t have anyone else he can rely on. Can Dr. Phil help this dysfunctional family make amends and construct a healthy lifestyle for Matt?
