On July 25, 2014, Dr. Phil continues his intervention with 18-year-old Sara, a pregnant teen who admits to smoking cigarettes and using drugs like marijuana, crack, and heroin. Her mother Kristin is at her wit’s end with the teen and is terrified for the life of her grandson. Sara says it’s her sister Sadie, a self-described drug addict, who is enabling her drug use. On July 24, 2014, Dr. Phil didn’t have much luck getting to the bottom of this situation and getting Sara to admit the truth. Will he have better luck July 25, 2014?
Dr. Phil: Pregnant & Still Using Heroin
Sara told Dr. Phil in the first part that she was only doing hard drugs at the beginning of her pregnancy. She admitted to smoking marijuana and cigarettes still, but at first claimed she was done with heroin and cocaine. Then she later admitted to doing cocaine and marijuana the night before the show. In fact, the hotel where Dr. Phil’s staff had her and her family staying charged Dr. Phil $250 to clean the room and remove the marijuana smell. After her mother and stepfather pressed her about a supposed drug binge she went on a month earlier with her sister, Sara finally admitted that yes, she’d done heroin and cocaine a few times. But that’s not really “using” to her. She also said that she’d done meth in the past.
Dr. Phil: Will Her Baby Be Born Addicted?
In order to get Sara to see the error of her ways, Dr. Phil will show her video footage of babies who were born addicted. Will it get her to change?
Dr. Phil: Criminal Charges Or Rehab?
Plus, Dr. Phil will introduce Sara to Dr. Charles Sophy, director of the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services, and Areva Martin, an attorney and child advocate. The two of them have words of warning for the expectant mom. Could she go to jail for what she’s doing?
Ultimately, Dr. Phil will deliver Sara with an ultimatum: either she goes to rehab to learn how to get off drugs, or Dr. Phil turns over this information to the police. Which option will she choose?
