There are recent reports that guests on the Dr. Phil show, who struggle with addiction, have been given alcohol and drugs prior to appearing on the show.
Todd Herzog, winner of Survivor: China, has appeared on the show multiple times and reveals what goes on behind the scenes.
Before appearing on the show, you must stay in a hotel for 48 hours to ‘detox’ without any medical attention or help. Herzog reports that after his 48-hour detox he arrived at the Dr. Phil studio to find a bottle of vodka in his dressing room. He proceeded to drink the entire bottle and was then offered a Xanax to ‘calm his nerves’. Herzog had to be carried onto the set and lifted into his chair to appear on the show.
Another guest claims that show staff instructed her to buy heroin for her addicted niece.
The Dr. Phil show has denied all allegations.
