Daddy's Little Girl

August 10, 2012
When Tiffany, 23, last appeared on the show, she shocked her parents, Ken and Susie, when she revealed that she was hooked on heroin. With a history of OxyContin addiction, Tiffany had been in — and checked herself out of — three rehabs, but her parents believed that she had finally cleaned up for good on her own, until they heard otherwise from Tiffany on Dr. Phil’s stage. Tiffany blamed her addiction problems on her broken relationship with her father, a police detective who said he was embarrassed to have an addict for a daughter. Ken and Susie both admitted to enabling her with their financial support and vowed to change their behavior. Did they do as promised? And, find out how Tiffany sent shockwaves through her family once again.
