Dr. Phil & Kathy
Kathy Chambers: From Resistance to Surrender
Like many people who show up on the doorstep of BRC Healthcare, Kathy Chambers arrived physically, mentally and spiritually bankrupt. Kathy’s body was badly damaged, apparently from her prolonged exposure to drugs. She had a difficult time sitting still and focusing on her step work. Kathy was told at the beginning of her rehabilitation that the spiritual program of action would be the solution to her addiction and her life. This was the moment she recalls as the turning point: a moment of clarity in an otherwise hopelessly dark state of mind. “No one had ever told me I never had to use drugs again,” she says.
