A Daughter on the Brink: Did Mom Push Her over the Edge?

Dana says her 23-year-old daughter, Melanie, is ripping apart their once-peaceful family with her out-of-control behavior that Dana says began five years ago, after Melanie took a hit of ecstasy. Dana says Melanie is a drug abuser who is physically violent and has experienced psychotic hallucinations — including one that involved Michael Jackson telling her to dig up the front yard. What’s at the root of Melanie’s behavior? Melanie admits to experimenting with drugs but says she’s not addicted and hasn’t had a drug-induced psychosis in at least two years — and she blames her mother for pushing her buttons and causing her to lose her cool. Dr. Phil brings this mother and daughter together in search of a resolution. Is Melanie as out of control as Dana says she is, or is Dana stirring unnecessary drama? And, how can this mother and daughter repair their relationship?
