Following his last appearance on "Dr. Phil" past year, Herzog wrote a letter addressed to the show confirming that there was really a bottle of vodka inside his dressing room. Todd believes it was a deliberate move to get him drunk to make for better TV.
Herzog says his dad was pissed because he knew he had just been sober.
After STAT and the Globe sent detailed questions about specific guests' allegations, the show issued a statement claiming that guests with substance abuse problems are medically supervised "100% of the time".
Herzog's father, however, told the Globe that Todd was not intoxicated when he arrived at the studio; when McGraw used a breathalyzer on Todd during the taping, he blew a 0.263 - more than three times Utah's current 0.08 legal limit for driving and more than five times the 0.05 limit that goes into effect in December 2018.
"I had been drinking and took a Xanax, which I've never taken Xanax before in my life, and I know that can be a deadly combination, so why it was given to me, I don't know", Herzog stated.

McGraw later scolded King-Parrish on the show for taking her daughter to buy drugs instead of taking her to the hospital.

Greenberg told STAT News that the show's producer, who filmed the scene in Skid Row, "simply documented the natural behavior she observed, which would have occurred whether she was there or not". One guest had the support of show staff when buying heroin, a family member told the site. Past guest Marianne Smith revealed she was instructed by Dr. Phil's production team to get heroin for her niece, who was there to discuss getting help with her addiction. In a statement provided to Stat and the Globe, he said that "addicts are notorious for lying, deflecting and trivializing".
Reporters note that the alleged actions of staffers can make for "riveting" television, but the show's guests, who stay in hotels up to 48 hours before taping an episode, can experience a possibly unsafe withdrawal period during that time. "But if they are at risk when they arrive, then they were at risk before they arrived", Greenberg told STAT/The Globe.
