An Intervention, Part 2: Behind the Scenes

DrPhil.com Exclusive
Dr. Phil facilitates an intervention with a family desperate to save their drug-addicted son.

While Dr. Phil speaks to the audience after the show, an audience member stands up and addresses the studio: "I want you to know that what you see here is what Dr. Phil does on a personal basis. I've known him for a while and I called him up out of desperation, and he basically interceded and did just what he did today, and the reality and outcome was that he saved a child. And so even though you see him doing this on a professional basis, I've seen him do on a personal basis and I'm proud to call him a friend." The audience applauds.
