‘There Were Signs We Should Have Seen,’ Says Woman About Daughter’s Substance Abuse

Lindy, who worked for three years at Dr. Phil, says she left the show in 2015 after “Everything came crashing down.” She says her dependence on Adderall, Vicodin, and alcohol was adversely affecting her life and her ability to do her job. Lindy’s parents, Susan and Butch, say they had no idea their daughter was in trouble. “When we found out about Lindy’s addiction, we were in denial,” says Susan. “Looking back, there were signs we should have seen.” Lindy says she went into treatment for substance abuse in 2016 and has been sober for nearly five years. She was hired back as an Associate Producer at Dr. Phil in 2020. “We believe in Lindy, and we’re so grateful that Dr. Phil gave her a second chance,” says Butch. “Dr. Phil shows others [that] if you stumble, you can come back stronger than ever.” Watch the video above to hear more about Lindy’s journey to sobriety and why Dr. Phil says, “We need you.” This episode, Update: “Dr. Phil Saved My Alcoholic Wife’s Life,” and “Dr. Phil Gave Me a Second Chance,” Check your local listing.
