          Admitted Heroin Addict Says Addiction Is ‘Spiraling Down,’ ‘Reaching The Bitter End’


          September 18, 2017

          Jerry Jr. admits that he abuses heroin and crack cocaine. The young man says he uses up to 20 bags of heroin and eight to 10 rocks of crack a day, which he affords by stealing money or getting cash from his father, Jerry Sr.

          Jerry Sr. admits he has given his son over $3 million, he says, to save his son’s life. The father admits that recently, he has also been driving his son to get drugs to help keep him safe.

          In the video above from Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil questions both men about their behavior.

          “Would you say this is spiraling down?” he asks Jerry Jr.

          “It’s spiraling down, yeah, we’re reaching the bitter ends of this,” he replies. “It’s going to end one way or another: either me dead or, you know, getting help.”
