          A Former Addict’s Message For Parents With A Child In Rehab


          April 6, 2017

          Rick and Joanne came to Dr. Phil twice begging for help with their then 19-year-old son Michael. They claimed he was a liar with no remorse or guilt, who stole from them to fuel his addiction to opiates. And, they admitted to enabling his behavior.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          Michael went to LaHacienda and completed a treatment program, but relapsed shortly after he got out, leading to the Dr. Phil show staging an intervention at his home.

          In the video above from Thursday’s episode, Dr. Phil speaks with Michael for the first time in six years. See how he is doing today and what message he has for parents who have a child in rehab. What does he say was the most important thing his parents did for him?

          Also on Thursday's episode, see other unforgettable updates. Check here to see where you can watch.
