Jaime Returns

August 24, 2011

Three months ago, Dr. Phil viewers witnessed one of the most dramatic interventions yet with Jaime, a 23-year-old addicted to OxyContin. Former guest and recovering addict Brandon and his mother, Debbie, helped Jaime's family perform the life-changing confrontation, but Jaime didn't respond well to the tough-love technique. The young woman flew into a rage, the police were called, and she was taken away in an ambulance. Find out how Jaime is now. Plus, two more addicts reach out for help.
