“I feel like all of these rehabs have been a scam just to get my money,” she continues. Michele says she’s been supporting Stephanie financially ever since she dropped out of college nearly 10 years ago, and since then, her daughter’s struggle with alcohol dependency has only worsened.

To date, Michele claims she’s spent nearly $300,000 on caring for her adult daughter and says she feels like she’s run out of options.

“Not a single rehab has worked for me,” says Stephanie, adding, “I stay sober for a short period of time, and then I go right back to drinking,. Stephanie admits she drinks a box of wine a day.

“I’ve tried Alcoholics Anonymous a number of times, the guys there just wanted to hit on me. It creeped me out. I just stopped going,” she continues, adding, “I need a lot of advice and a lot of direction and a lot of guidance because everything I’ve tried has not worked.”

She says she’s crashed three cars, has two DUI’s, and a suspended license.
