          ‘I Need A Reason To Be Clean,’ Says Young Mom Who Uses Heroin


          May 10, 2018

          Brittanie admits that she’s a heroin addict. The 24-year-old has detoxed numerous times but has never remained clean. Her identical twin sister, McKenzie, who has been sober for almost four years, and her fiancé, Chad, say that unless Brittanie stops using, she is not allowed at their upcoming wedding.

          “I need everybody to realize that I need a reason to be clean,” Brittanie tells McKenzie and Chad on Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil. “To kick me out of your lives, and then do it for what? I think we’re being a little harsh on everything I’ve been through and everything I’ve done.”
