Watch as three sisters in their 20s, Valeen, Amanda and Tiffany, allow Dr. Phil's cameras to reveal what a day in their life is like as heroin addicts.
“Once we found out that each other was using, we were, like, what the hell? We might as well all get high together,” says Valeen, 27. “We shoot up every single day, five, six, seven times a day.”
It wasn’t always like this. Valeen was once headed to college; Amanda was homecoming queen and had plans of becoming a dental hygienist; and Tiffany was a star athlete. But now their lives revolve completely around scoring drugs. “When we wake up in the morning, the first thing on our minds is to get high,” Valeen says. “It’s like I’m married to it.”
Amanda, 25, adds, “As soon as it goes through my veins, I just feel 100 times better.”
“It’s just a vicious cycle of misery,” says Tiffany, 22.
On Dr. Phil on Thursday, he offers the sisters help — with very specific conditions. Will they agree? Check here for local listings.
