          Dr. Phil Guest: ‘Yes, I’ve Done Drugs. I’ve Caused A Lot Of Pain, But My Family Is Refusing To Just Move Forward’


          September 28, 2018

          “I don’t feel like my family can forgive me for doing the things I’ve done,” says Alex. “Yes, I’ve done drugs. I’ve caused a lot of pain, but my family is refusing to just move forward from that, and it’s making it really difficult for me to recover.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a loved one?

          The 26-year-old says she’s committed to her sobriety after seeking treatment, but that’s not good enough for her mom and sisters.

          “They’ve called me a junkie. They’ve called me a druggie. They said that I will never amount to anything, and I’m never going to change,” Alex claims. “I constantly feel judged, and when they’re looking at me, it’s, like, a look of disgust. They’re, just, kind of sitting there on the side with some popcorn waiting for the next bad thing to happen.”
