Dr. Phil revisits the story that captivated America. At 21 years of age, Brandon was immersed in drug addiction, prone to violent outbursts that scared his family and left them worried that wouldn’t live to see 22. Dr. Phil conducted an intervention and followed Brandon's roller coaster ride through treatment, relapse and the struggle to get back on his feet. After a year of sobriety, the last place his family expected to see Brandon was behind bars -- but, that's exactly where his disease has taken him. Does black tar heroin have a hold on him? Dr. Phil travels to Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas to find out. He also hears Brandon reveal how a drug addict beats the system. Plus, drug addiction affects not only the user, but the entire family. See the toll it's taking on Brandon’s family and on his parents' marriage. Join the discussion.

Please don't do any more shows on this kid.  He is spoiled and has been given so many many breaks.  Dr Phil set him up with treatment, a spot on a television show, yadda yadda yadda.  I am very tired of seeing him and his enabling family.  The first time it was OK.  Then the 2nd time, it was trite, one more time and I just won't watch that episode.  Please give other people in trouble a chance to use Dr Phil's help and resources since  Brandon seems to keep failing.  The time spent on him, could be put to use on many others that will try and succeed.   


I have enjoyed just about every other Dr Phil show and realize you won't please all of the people all of the time.  My husband and I watch the show all the time and really thank God that we are not in some of the situations that are shown to us.  The shows hit a myriad of topics which is very nice indeed.  Dr Phil also shows a human side and having Robin on once in a while is great.  She is the darling of the show.  Kudos to the staff for doing such a wonderful job too.  The show could not be such a success without you.  I love the show.  It's well done and Dr Phil is so diplomatic (most of the time LOL).   The shows are well done and really hit on some very tough situations that are real and very painful.  Some of the episodes break my heart.  The one where the woman had anger issues (I know which one?), where she was beating her son and swearing even though he was pleading for her to stop.  The one where she hurt his knee..........  Couldn't sleep for 3 nights!  I hope the children are taken away until she has help and is more in control.  These things have to be exposed.  Keep up the good work and good luck to your further success!

Dr. Phil is out to help Brandon. You're asking Dr. Phil to give up on him.... when that is the last thing Brandon needs. If Dr. Phil quit on Brandon, Brandon would feel the world quit on him too. He's already proven that he needs help and can't do it on his own. I know there are other people out there with worse problems but Brandon's story is a good set example for everybody. He has a chance and needs help through it. Dr. Phil can't help everybody but he is standing by one story and not giving up because Brandon hasn't given up. I will be there watching the next episode to support Brandon.
