          Teen Who Admits She Has Behavioral Issues Claims She’s Working To Fix Them


          January 10, 2018

          Madie, 18, was adopted at birth. At 9, she says she was diagnosed with ADHD and bipolar disorder. Since then, she says, “Stuff just went downhill.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          Madie claims she’s been to upward of 20 different doctors, medicated and hospitalized against her will. She says she feels unloved and believes her parents, Beth and Jim, regret adopting her. “They have told me that they wished that they would have thought more about this before they proceeded with an adoption.”

          Beth and Jim say Madie’s behaviors are out of control. They claim she lies, steals, manipulates people and sometimes becomes physically abusive. “Yes, I admit to those, but I am working on fixing them to this day,” says the teenager who claims her parents have thrown her out of the house – twice.

          Does Dr. Phil have a plan to help Madie and her parents resolve their differences? Tune in to Wednesday’s episode.
