The Accusation

The Staff of the Dr. Phil Show, as well as Dr. Phil himself, is currently being accused of giving his guests who are addicted to a substance alcohol or drugs. One of the guest Todd Herzog, which is also a “Survivor China” Winner was struggling with an alcohol addiction, he was a guest on the Dr. Phil show in 2013. When he arrived in Los Angeles for the taping of the show, he found a bottle of vodka in his dressing room. Do you think this could be their form of a complimentary?

"Eighty percent of all choices are based on fear. Most people don't choose what they want; they choose what they think is safe."

— Phil Mcgraw

It was there so, why not?

Well since it was in his dressing room, he is an alcoholic in recovery, he drank the whole bottle! Before his appearance on the show, the staff decided to give him a Xanax, which is a medication for anxiety, to “calm his nerves”. So, when it came to the walk on to the stage he was stumbling and struggling to walk. Dr. Phil noticed he was intoxicated, obviously, he provided it right? Dr. Phil decided to do a Breathalyzer test, which showed he below .263, which is more than three times the legal limit.

Todd Herzog is not the only who has accused the show of putting them at risk.


From what I have Watched

I know that multiple times when I have watched the Dr. Phil show, they would be showing guests buying drugs such as heroin off the streets, and state it was “this morning before the show” or “last night”. I would be so confused, like why is a film crew with the guests buying drugs? And why are drug dealers selling to them? Now, I know. It is all to make a good show, to make the guests look like they are struggling more then they are, and to make Dr. Phil look like the super hero.

"We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we're capable of."
