Kelli says she’s been struggling with addiction since she was 8 years old. She says it started with drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana, and now she uses heroin daily – recently overdosing twice within five days.
 
Kelli says when she started using, she did it to escape the pain of her childhood.
 

Dr. Phil provides his perspective on why she now uses heroin every day. “I think the reason that you do heroin the way you do is because you are a heroin addict. That’s what you do. That’s who you are,” he says. “You do heroin today because you did heroin yesterday.”
