Parents: How do you sound an alarm when your out-of-control teenager thinks he or she is invincible? When 16-year-old Chris and 19-year-old Brett last appeared on the show, they said they were just acting like normal teens ” drinking, smoking marijuana and vandalizing property. They say jail is a joke, but with the help of Dr. Phil, they find out that life behind bars is no laughing matter.
Behind the Walls
At Dr. Phil’s request, Chris and Brett participate in San Quentin State Prison’s S.Q.U.I.R.E.S. program, which deters juvenile delinquency. Dr. Phil cameras follow the young men as they enter prison for the first time.
As the inmates strike up an unlikely camaraderie with the young men, they try to delve into the root of Chris’ anger and Brett’s drinking problem.
A Close Encounter
While on their tour, Chris and Brett are confronted in the hallway by three inmates who aren’t a part of the S.Q.U.I.R.E.S. program. How do they react coming face-to-face with prisoners from death row?
A Sobering Encounter
Brett sits down for a heart-to-heart with Mark, a father who suffered a tragic loss because of a drunk driver. Will the teen finally change his rebellious ways?
