Playing Has Aaron Carter Tackled His Health and Addiction Issues?

The following material contains mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.

Aaron Carter first came to The Doctors in 2017 with concerns about his health and well-being and now he returns with an emotional update about his struggles and all the progress he has made in the last 2 years. He also reveals he is seeking help for his mother Jane Carter who he says is struggling with alcohol addiction.

During his first visit, the pop star underwent a battery of tests to better understand the state of his health. During his wide-ranging and extensive interview, he spoke candidly about his life and set the record straight about his arrest, drug abuse allegations, extreme weight loss, family issues, and his sexuality. During a sit-down with Dr. Travis Stork and gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, we revealed Aaron had tested negative for all STDs and that his liver, kidney, thyroid, and stomach were healthy, but it was determined that he was suffering from malnourishment and endangering himself with the mixing of prescription medications. "I don’t want to be on these pills, so let's get off them. I want the tools… to not dig my own grave," he said at the time.

And now Aaron exclusively tells The Doctors, "My experience with The Doctors was very scary. I was in a really terrible place. I was abusing medications. I was in a toxic relationship. I was in complete denial. I was so into the addiction, I was just like, 'I'm just going to let myself die.' Aaron credits The Doctors for helping to save his life. "I still struggle, but... I'm creative. I'm starting to get acclimated to my medications. I gained 45 pounds. I manage my career, I negotiate my contracts. That's what it's like for me being sober." He adds, "I love you guys. You guys were more a family for me than anybody else."

"The Doctors saved me... they saved my life," an emotional Aaron continues.

Now that Aaron has better control of his life and health, he is asking The Doctors to come to the aid of his mother Jane.

"My mother is struggling. She's a very bad alcoholic. Alcohol is her best friend," he tells us, saying she drinks every day. Aaron says his mom begins drinking at 5 AM and will consume an entire bottle of vodka. He tells us he is worried his mom's life could cut short due to drinking.

Aaron vows to help his mother get sober, saying, "I love my mom and I will do everything it takes to save my mother. I will give up all that I have." Aaron, who is one of four children including fellow popstar Nick Cater, claims he is the only person in the family who is concerned about his mother's wellbeing. "What scares me the most is that she is dying. If she doesn't get the help now, she's going to die in the next 6 months to a year," he says.

Before The Doctors address his mom's concerns, Aaron takes a moment to apologize to Dr. Travis and clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho and reveals the true reason he went to rehab 2 years ago.

"I lied to you when I came here. I have a truth that I'm going to reveal... the reason why I went to rehab is for huffing. Aerosols, duster cans. That's why I went... I lied to you and I'm sorry and I'm here to make amends... you guys saved my life."
