Former America’s Next Top Model contestant Jael Strauss‘ episode of Dr. Phil yesterday and it was just as harrowing to watch as expected.
Jael’s mother initially believes her daughter is addicted to Vicodin, Oxycontin, and possibly meth; through the course of the episode, they discover she’s on a cocktail of “five different substances”. To make matters worse, Jael’s mother confesses to doing coke with her daughter, while Jael’s godfather admits to substance abuse problems of his own. Eventually, Jael agrees to go to rehab (paid for by Dr. Phil). Check out some clips of the episode below.
