Whether it’s smoking, drinking or eating, if you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, you're not alone. The Doctors gives you the tools to quit in the brand new series “The Doctors' Wake-Up Call with Jillian!”

“It’s pretty intense,” health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels says. “We took three couples who were destroying their health and their families due to addictions, and moved them into The Doctors’ House. What you’re going to see if terrifying. You’re going to cry, but you’re also going to laugh and hopefully we’re going have a happy ending.”

Meet the Couples

Meet three husbands grappling with addictions that are not only destroying their health, but their marriages, too. Can they confront their demons and reclaim their lives?


“The fact that they came [to The Doctors’ House] showed there was some hope, some desire to change,” Jillian says.

Corey, 29, & Gena, 32
Addiction: Food
Facts: Weighing 320 pounds, Corey says he eats fast food at least four times a day, drinks up to seven sodas daily and once consumed 13 slices of bacon in one sitting.
Gena says: “Right now, the way Corey’s going, I can’t see him being here in 10 years. He’s eating himself to his death.”
Patrick, 51, & Terri, 43
Addiction: Chewing tobacco
Facts: Patrick chews every single day, despite the fact that thehabit is ruining his teeth, his health and his 22-year marriage.
Terri says: “I can’t remember the last time we had a real kiss.”
Steven, 35, & Kelsey, 19
Addiction: Smoking
Facts: Steven, a leukemia survivor, smokes up to two packs of cigarettes a day. Kelsey is pregnant with their first child.
Kelsey says: "After hearing all the harm second-hand smoke can do to our baby, it really changed my outlook on being around those situations."

“I’m not a doctor and I’m not a therapist, but what I do are three things: push people to see the reality of the disaster they’ve created, push them to do things they don’t believe they’re strong enough to do and most importantly, show them that they are worth the effort of making a change,” Jillian says.

Cameras roll 24/7 as three couples struggling to face their demons are given the wake-up call of their lives, every Thursdsay on The Doctors.
