America's Next Top Model alum Jael Strauss will appear on Thursday's Dr.Phil to undergo an intervention for her meth addiction.
In the preview, the model is barely recognizable after battling the addiction for the past six years. Strauss, who placed sixth in Cycle 8, appeared on the reality show only five years ago.
