Tammy Slaton goes back to rehab in ‘Never Say Never’
In the season 3 episode, Tammy has another meeting with Dr. Smith. But this time, Dr. Smith came directly to Tammy to talk about her overall health.
Speaking to Dr. Smith, Tammy detailed how her mental health had declined since she last saw him. “I don’t know how to ask for help,” Tammy told her doctor in the episode. “I think you just did,” Dr. Smith admitted.
Before Dr. Smith visited her, Tammy was drinking and vaping. “I know turning to alcohol and vaping … could be doing more damage, but I just want to be free,” Tammy admitted to Dr. Smith.
At the end of their conversation, Tammy wasn’t ready to go back to rehab, but she was willing to see a psychologist. A few weeks later, Tammy called Dr. Smith to inform him her mental health had “gotten worse” and that she was ready to reenter rehab.
