Season 3 Episode 13
As a child, Caylee was an over-achiever from an affluent family. But despite her myriad successes, her mother, Christy, was never satisfied with her. Christy, herself was sexually-abused as a girl, and believes that she has managed her own trauma well. Except she has hidden her bulimia from her family for 35-years. When Caylee was in grade school, Christy began to teach her daughter to count her calories. In high school, Caylee became a bulimic and began drinking. Now, she is 23 and college drop-out, a bulimic, and a heroin addict. She is 80 lbs, and goes to her 50 year-old "boyfriend" for drugs and money. The family wants to help both mother and daughter, if they can find a way to have the mother present for Caylee's Intervention, and then approach Christy about her bulimia.
