          Woman Says Her Daughter Gave Up A ‘Bright Future’ To Use Drugs


          May 12, 2017

          “As I watched my daughter on life-support in the hospital, I felt absolutely helpless,” says Clyde of his youngest child, Bethany, who recently had valve replacement surgery, and spent 10 days in a medically induced coma to recover from concurrent infections. Her medical condition, says the family, was the result of Bethany’s ongoing addiction to heroin.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          Clyde says he looked at his daughter, and couldn’t tell if she realized what she’d been through, or how serious it was. “I issued the tough love. I told Bethany, if she were to die in this situation – we would cry and we would hurt – but our lives would go on. She didn’t give me a response.”

          Charlotte says her daughter was once a high school soccer player with a bright future that included plans for college – but that all changed, she claims, when Bethany started using drugs and getting in trouble with the law. “The Bethany that I see now, is definitely not the daughter that I want to know.”

          The family says they’re angry and frustrated with Bethany. Who do they claim is her biggest enabler?
