Janie has cirrhosis of the liver and says she struggled to stop drinking alcohol long after doctors warned her in 2018 that she’d be dead within five years if she didn’t quit. Her family said that if Janie didn’t stop drinking and get some help, they were ready to walk away from her for good. After appearing on Dr. Phil, Janie began online counseling sessions with Doctor on Demand and attended virtual AA meetings before going to Westwind Recovery Center for treatment. “Westwind has just been amazing and had me really start thinking about what am I missing and why did I start drinking,” says Janie in the video above. This episode, '"Last Call for My Former 'Party Animal' Mom!"' airs Friday. Check your local listing to find out where to watch. Doctor on Demand is owned in part by Philip C. McGraw and his son, Jay McGraw. WATCH: ‘I Don’t Want To Be A Slave To This Anymore,’ Says Woman Living With Alcoholism TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?
