Sisters Devin, 24, Riley, 18, and Autumn, 16, say their mother, Linda, has a drinking problem, and it is destroying their family. They say she has never been a good mother and is always drunk, belligerent and abusive. Linda’s husband, Scott, says Linda has become a burden on their family. Linda admits she’s an alcoholic who sometimes drinks as many as 18 beers a day, along with vodka and taking prescription medications but says she shouldn’t be the only one in the hot seat -- she says Scott has a drinking problem, too. How does Scott respond? Dr. Phil offers tools to help repair this broken family. Will Linda accept help? And, will Linda’s daughters give her one more chance? (OAD: 2-12-15)
