"My Drunken Daughter Will Die if She Doesn't Stop Drinking Hand Sanitizer"

Toni says her daughter, Kristine, is battling an alcohol addiction and has resorted to drinking hand sanitizer as a cheap way to get her fix. She says her daughter drinks nearly a gallon and a half of hand sanitizer a week and believes it’s only a matter of time before Kristine dies. Toni, along with Kristine’s sisters, Dawn and April, say they’re concerned for Kristine’s 8-year-old daughter, who has become Kristine’s caretaker and is witnessing her downfall. The siblings also say their mother enables Kristine, which is preventing her from getting her act together. Kristine says her family is dysfunctional, and they’re the reason she can’t stay sober. Dr. Phil has words of warning for Kristine. After three failed stints in rehab, will she agree to try again -- or risk losing her daughter forever?

"My Father Offered Me as a 'Maiden' Sacrifice to an Alleged Cult Leader"

Lindsay claims that from ages 13 to 23 she was one of 10 “maidens” and was sexually abused by alleged cult leader Victor Barnard — a fugitive currently facing 59 felony charges, including criminal sexual conduct. Lindsay blames her father, Carmen, for turning a blind eye and says she can never forgive him for failing to protect her. Carmen says he had no idea what his daughter was going through, because Barnard had such a mental hold on him -- and he’s desperate to repair his relationship with Lindsay. Emotions run high when the two come together for the first time in more than a year. How does Lindsay say she finally escaped nearly a decade of alleged abuse? And, what red flags does she say her father ignored? Plus, can this father and daughter move forward in healing and forgiveness? This program contains strong language and adult subject matter. Viewer discretion advised.

The War of the LaRosas

Dana and Frank LaRosa say they got married after knowing each other only eight weeks, and their one-and-a-half-year marriage has been filled with screaming fights and included police interventions. Dana, who has three daughters, says Frank completely changed for the worse after getting married, and being with him is like raising a fourth child. She also says he is “sneaky” and “conniving” and has a chronic gambling problem. Frank admits he’s not happy in the relationship and has left Dana five times. He says Dana cries wolf and has had him arrested twice for domestic violence -- conduct which he denies. What do Dana’s children have to say about their stepfather? Was this relationship doomed from the start, or can Dr. Phil help them find a solution?

"Cyberbullied after My Son's Death"

Dr. Phil sheds light on the dark and dangerous side of the Internet: Cyberbullying. First, grieving mother Alicia tragically lost her 5-year-old son to drowning nearly three months ago, and ever since, she claims her former high school friend, Jessica, has been posting outrageous comments about her online — even accusing Alicia of being responsible for her son’s death. Jessica admits to making nasty comments about Alicia online but claims they were in retaliation. What does she say Alicia did to provoke her? Can these mothers stop the mudslinging and reach a truce? Then, in October 2012, Carol’s 15-year-old daughter, Amanda, took her own life after the teen was cyberbullied by a man she met online. Carol shares her heartbreaking story with the nation — and offers words of wisdom to Alicia and Jessica. Will her story make an impact?
