          Husband And Wife Blame Each Other For Their Own Substance Abuse Problems


          October 9, 2018

          Heather and John say the last five years of their nine-year marriage have been tumultuous. John says after a back injury, Heather, a nurse, began abusing prescription drugs, which he claims has caused her to become physically and verbally abusive. Heather says that it’s John’s drinking that causes her to inject a variety of drugs.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          Heather tells Dr. Phil what she calls the “real story” of how John drinks.

          “He will take a 12oz glass, and he will fill it with whiskey, and he will chug it down,” she claims. “He’s gagging the whole time to get it down … He doesn’t even pass out. He falls asleep for three hours, and wakes up and does this whole thing over, and over, and over.”
