          February 9, 2017

          Kaitlin says she has been using heroin for six years. The 28-year-old, who is six months pregnant, homeless and jobless, says she shoots up at least five times a day. Her mother, Joelle, admits she gives Kaitlin money on occasion, which Kaitlin says she has used to buy drugs.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil asks the young woman how she gets money to support her habit.

          “I don’t know,” she tells him. “Either I’ll pawn things I have or I’ll borrow money, things like that.”

          “Are you prostituting yourself?” Dr. Phil asks.

          “No, absolutely not,” Kaitlin says. “I’ve always been very self-sufficient. I’ve always had a job until just recently.” She says she was a dancer for a year and made “a lot of money.”

          “I’ve dealt drugs, so that makes a lot of money,” she continues. “I’ve never really been in this position before where I haven’t had money.”
