Mama June and her boyfriend, Geno Doak, went to a rehabilitation center in Florida for a 30-day program earlier this year, the family’s therapist said exclusively at the Sun.
Dr. Ish Major revealed to June Shannon, and Geno decided to go into rehab when they “hit rock bottom.
He told the Sun, “She’s thinking, ‘I’m running out of money, I’m selling my stuff, I have legal problems, maybe it’s time to get help. She finally got to the part where she was ready to act.
“They went in very discreetly, very quietly, once they hit rock bottom they went to a treatment center in Florida.” “This is a win, I’ll take it!”
Mama June: From Not to Hot: June Shannon Checked Into A 30-day Program
Dr. Ish has already told The Sun that Mama June is currently “in communication” with her four daughters, Anna, 25, Jessica, 23, Pumpkin, 20, and Alana, 14, from Florida, where she currently lives with Geno.
He said, “The family is being burned. We tried and we never succeeded.” We poured resources, time, attention and affection into you, and none of it worked.” The family is like, “Listen, we’re done.” We’re aggravated.” It’s a very complicated way to reintroduce yourself back into the family”.
He kept going, “We love you, but we’ll love you from here. The last thing I did with Pumpkin was help her understand boundaries. If you can’t behave properly, if you can’t make better decisions for you and for us, then you can’t be a part of our lives. The only way to say that is time. This is June earning her place in the family.”
Dr. Ish revealed that the family has Skype calls and other forms of communication planned to see if June is doing well.
She added, “They’re rebuilding trust. That’s what you said you’ll do, let’s see if you can do it.” History says you won’t. If you do, then we can take the next step. This is how you work to get back into the family and we can trust each other again.” Dr. Ish helped with June’s intervention last season and supported the family in their struggle.
