Erik wrote to Dr. Phil begging for help with what he called his codependent relationship with his mother, Kathy. Erik says that he and his mom have had an ongoing battle with drug addiction. In fact, Erik admits that he spends up to $30,000 on heroin each month. Erik claims that Kathy begs him for heroin as soon as she wakes up every morning and says Kathy flips out if he refuses to give her drugs. Erik says that Kathy is the reason why he has not been able to get clean.
Kathy claims that watching Erik use heroin made her curious and she asked him if she could try it. She says she has kept the secret from her daughter, Stephanie.
Stephanie says she is horrified with her family’s behavior and has threatened to disown them if they do not get clean.
