          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          “My mom got into drinking, and that’s when her addiction started,” she says. “Whenever she would get drunk, we don’t know how to act because I was so young. It always scared me.”

          The teen says that when she lived with her mom and her boyfriend, she felt like she had to take care of her younger brother – and she also witnessed abuse.
