          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Relative gone from big success to a total mess?

          “Carrie’s addiction to pain pills has destroyed this family,” Christopher says. “The worst part about it is she takes no accountability for it and she always thinks that she’s the victim.”

          The father of three claims Carrie has driven their kids around while under the influence and she once disappeared for over a month and never contacted him. When Christopher located her at a hotel, he says there were hypodermic needles, and Carrie weighed 95 pounds. Christopher says it’s this addiction that forced him to have the courts remove Carrie from their home, which left this former PTA mom homeless and living out of her luxury SUV.
