          New Hope For Lauren


          January 26, 2017

          Sixteen years ago, Lauren was rescued from a dark, urine-soaked closet where her parents had kept her locked away from the rest of the world, while they beat, terrorized and abused her from the ages of  2-8. Since then, the now 23-year-old has struggled with the aftermath of her ordeal – but the road hasn’t been easy.

          Lauren admits that while she has had some triumphs – like graduating from college and finding a relationship – she has also struggled to overcome substance abuse, severe depression, and multiple suicide attempts.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY:At your final breaking point?

          Turning to Dr. Phil for help, he tells her, “You’ve got sleep deprivation, you’ve been drinking too much, I do think you have PTSD and perhaps some other things. I want to help unravel those things for you.”

          On Thursday’s episode, Dr. Phil offers Lauren help with her recovery, steps to start a career and a new place to call home.
