          Dr. Phil On Being Raised By An Alcoholic Father


          May 25, 2016

          “I was raised by an alcoholic father. I know when your dad is subject to being drunk, I know what that’s like. I know you don’t bring your friends home. You don’t bring your friends home because you don’t know what you’re going to find when you open the door,” Dr. Phil tells his guests on Wednesday’s show.

          He speaks with McKenzie, Mariah and Jake, who claim their dad – former Professional Baseball player Richie Lewis – has been “abusive” and “belligerent” when he drinks.

          Dr. Phil continues: “I brought friends home one time in the sixth grade in Denver, Colorado, in February and my dad was asleep on the driveway, in his underwear, with his pillow and it was 24 degrees out. And I walk up with six friends. What do you say to your friends?” Dr. Phil says.

          Watch the video above as Dr. Phil talks with these siblings and their parents about coping with a loved one who may be struggling with an addiction.
