Jason says he has always had an uncontrollable temper and that when he is provoked or feels disrespected, he can be “a dangerous person.” His wife, Sara, moved out of the couple’s home with their three sons in late 2021. She claims that Jason physically and verbally abused her for 20 years and says she won’t go back until he changes his behavior.

“If you really want this, we’re willing to take a shot and do this with you and give you the tools that you need,” says Dr. Manion to Jason in the video above.
