    I know they sometimes knock people out for several days to get through the worse of addiction withdrawal...I've read about that for drug withdrawal, don't know if it works for alcohol. Sounds like he would need something like that...something to let his liver recover.... 90 liters a month....so 3 a day!!! Yikes.

    This is sad. On Survivor, he was so with it. Seemed like a very intelligent young man with a very bright future. I really hope he can pull it together.

    Re: Todd - China

    I watched the show the other day and it was painful to watch. I don't know Todd outside of watching him on Survivor but to see someone in that condition was very sad. It was his family that went to Dr. Phil asking for help because they didn't know how to help him anymore. They tried to get Todd to go to rehab but Todd refused saying he would do it on his own but he was failing at that. Why they chose Dr. Phil who knows, maybe they couldn't afford the type of facility Todd would need and knew Dr. Phil could get him into the right facility. Also putting him on that show they were probably trying to give Todd that wake up call he needed to see that he really needed help and rehab was the only way to get it. So hate Dr. Phil or like Dr. Phil don't really care, he was able to get him to agree to finally go to rehab and if Todd gets all the help he needs than that's all that matters here.

    I will never watch Dr. Phil. My initial thought when he first appeared on the scene was that a century ago, he would have been been a snake oil salesman traveling the road and selling 10-cent pseudo cure-alls to the masses. Never saw anything that would modify that impression.

    They tried to get Dr Phil ( or get him on the show)more than once. I agree, if that's what it takes - do what you can!!

    I can agree that it really doesn't matter why or how he got to rehab as long as he did. I just hate seeing Dr. Phil using this seriously sad and messed up situation to his advantage, but I suppose to a family at the end of their rope it probably didn't matter.

    Hope that he gets help. As well as some love and care. As he needs to do that. Wish him nothing but the best.
