November 13 The face of addiction has changed over the last decade. Studies are proving that more and more seemingly successful stay-at-home moms are silently suffering from some form of addiction.
Dr. Drew Pinsky, American board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist and television and radio personality (VH1's "Rehab," syndicated radio show "Loveline") joins Ricki to shed some light on the alarming increase in full-time homemakers who have severe addictions to, among other things, prescription pills and compulsive shopping.  Ricki introduces Dr. Drew to a modern-day "Carol Brady" -- a woman with three lovely girls and three lively stepsons -- who seems to have it all, but is secretly suffering from a crippling addiction to prescription pills.  Will Dr. Drew be able to convince her to go straight from the show into rehab?
