Chandler, Michelle's son.

11 of 15
 
When Michelle was hooked on meth, she found out she wasn't the only one in her family with a problem—her 13-year-old son, Chandler, was using the drug, too. Michelle and her ex-husband discovered Chandler was smoking meth by using a common household lightbulb.

Michelle and Mike confronted their son and took him to rehab. On the ride home, all Michelle could think about was her next fix. "I felt guilty," she says. "How can I say, 'Chandler, this is what you need to do,' when I've gotten high?"

Chandler learned of his mother's addiction a few weeks before appearing with her on the show, which left him feeling upset. But he's happy to share that he's been drug-free for five months.
