          Dr. Phil To Guest Who Says He Is Facing Jail: ‘I Have A Plan’


          September 5, 2017

          Josh is accused of having become physical with his wife, Sky, as well as “stealing” her identity, opening up credit cards in her name, and, Sky claims, attempting to empty her bank account. Josh admits to hitting Sky, and to taking the money, which he says he used to gamble with. He also says he’s a recovering meth user.

          After acknowledging that he may be facing jail time in connection with domestic violence charges, Josh says he has to turn himself in to authorities within 72 hours. Dr. Phil says he would like to help Josh. “I have a plan.”

          He introduces Josh to T.J. Howard, Corporate Director of Origins Behavioral Healthcare, saying, “These folks deal with addiction and psychological issues at the same time.”

          “Independently of one another; drugs, gambling, anger, depression – those are all highly dangerous,” says Howard, offering to help Josh with a placement at the residential treatment facility.

          “We’re extending this to you because we think you deserve it,” says Dr. Phil.

          Will Josh make the commitment?
