Nicole says she knows her alcoholism is a “life or death situation,”
but the morning she was due to meet with Dr. Phil, she left the hotel and was later found intoxicated at home.
Still under the influence, she was brought back to see Dr. Phil; but refused to come out on stage. In the video above he visits with Nicole backstage.
“I know it’s pretty inevitable that if I don’t stop, I will die,” says Nicole. Continuing, she says, “I’ve been on Death’s door for a long time now, and I’m pretty self-destructive.”
When Dr. Phil refers her to the dual diagnostic and treatment program at Creative Care,
does Nicole accept the offer of help?
