Dr. Phil: Drug Addict Stealing From Her Boyfriend
Dr. Phil has been talking to an out of control pregnant teen named Sara who admits to doing drugs and her mother Kristin, who is at her wit’s end. Sara says she does drugs while pregnant because her self-described drug addict sister Sadie enables her. Now, Dr. Phil sat down with Sadie and her boyfriend Keith.
Keith and Sadie both say Sadie has stolen money from Keith in the past for drugs, even going so far as taking his credit card to get money out of the ATM. Keith tried to help her by locking her in the house during the day with padlocks and watching her every move with a video camera in order to get her off drugs. This has had mixed results. Keith said the last thing Sadie stole from him was a digital camcorder. Sadie said she used it to pay somebody back. Keith said that he thought she used it for drugs.
Dr. Phil: What Did The Drug Test Say?
Sadie took a drug screen and she tested positive for THC, cocaine, and meth. Sadie seemed visibly surprised by the meth, as though she didn’t remember do it. Sadie tried to water her urine down to sabotage the test. She openly admitted doing that. She just ran it under water.
Dr. Phil said that the problem with taking street drugs is that you have no idea what’s in them. He said marijuana can be fertilized with anything. He said that people that sell drugs aren’t necessarily lab savvy. They could be cutting it with baking soda. “Just anything to get rid of the pain. Honestly, that’s all that matters at that time,” Sadie said.
Dr. Phil: Is She Still Using Drugs?
Dr. Phil asked Sadie what Sara was doing, since Sara refused to do a drug test. He’s assuming she has something to hide.
“If anyone here besides me cares about this unborn child, then tell me the truth,” Dr. Phil said.
Sadie said she didn’t want to be the one to tell him. Kristin said that what she knows is that Sara has used cocaine, ecstasy, meth, and marijuana. Kristin said that they both had to admit that one month ago the two of them were using together. They were smoking crack and snorting heroin together. Earlier, Sara vehemently denied having used these drugs a month ago. Now, she said, “I mean, like, once or twice isn’t really like using.”
Dr. Phil: Did She Steal A Laptop?
Sara said her drug test would be the same as her sister Sadie’s. She said she would test positive for meth and cocaine. When her mother suggested crack, she seemed shocked.
Then Kristin and her husband Ralph revealed that a laptop went missing from their house last week and was traded for crack cocaine. Sara said she had nothing to do with that and seemed really surprised by this information. The laptop ended up coming back to the house. Sara said that she didn’t take it.
Ralph said that he’s at his wit’s end with Sara because she crossed a line by stealing from them for drugs.
Dr. Phil: Why Won’t She Share Her Medical Records?
Sara said that she’s been going to the doctor and her baby is doing fine. But for some reason, she refused to allow Dr. Phil’s staff to look at her medical records and to contact her doctor. Sara vehemently denied that was true. There was a huge argument about whether she did this or whether she didn’t.
Dr. Phil said that everything Sara is doing seems like addict behavior to him. He said his primary concern is the unborn child Sara is abusing through her drug use.
