Parents Blame Their Daughter's Boyfriend For Her Heroin Addiction (VIDEO)

Huffington Post

Alyssa and Steve say their worst nightmare has come true: Their 21-year-old daughter, Paige, who has overdosed 16 times, is now living in a motel with her addict boyfriend.

"Paige's boyfriend Brandon is the reason she's a heroin addict. He was the first one to shoot her up," says Alyssa, who believes Brandon taught Paige to shoot heroin when she was 18.

"To do that to another human being ... it just infuriates me," says Steve. "It makes me want to rip his head off."

They say their daughter's life spun out of control after she got addicted to heroin, including her arrests for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, a DUI, and burglary of a pizza delivery guy.

"Nobody should be living the way she's living," laments Alyssa. "If Paige is going to be clean, it's imperative that Brandon is out of the picture once and for all."

"It's dire, she's dying," Alyssa says to Dr. Phil, asking for help.
