Christe and her mother, Marilyn, both wrote to Dr. Phil: Christe claiming her 43-year-old brother Ryan is being “enabled” by Marilyn and their father, Joey, while Marilyn said Christe has severed communication with her because of her “jealous and judgmental” attitude toward Ryan.

Ryan, who currently lives with Joey and admits he has no steady job, smokes marijuana and is driven to a methadone clinic regularly by Marilyn or Joey, claims Christe is “psycho” and a “pathological liar” who wants to sabotage his recovery. Can Dr. Phil get to the heart of this family’s estrangement?
