          Watch How A Woman Addicted To Heroin Reacts When Dr. Phil Offers Her The Chance To Enter Treatment


          February 9, 2017

          Joelle says her 28-year-old daughter, Kaitlin, is six months pregnant and addicted to heroin. She says the mom of two was once a high school cheerleader but for the last six years, has been shooting up at least five times a day and is now homeless. Joelle says when she found out her two little grandchildren were living in a hotel room filled with trash, cigarettes and drug paraphernalia, she quit her job and took custody of the girls. Fearing if Kaitlin doesn’t get clean she is going end up dead, Joelle and her other daughter, Amy, turn to Dr. Phil for help.
