She said the thing that she loves most about Dax, who she married in 2013, is that “he was able to tell me and tell us and say we need a different plan.”

“If he has to take medication for any reason, I have to administer it,” Bell said of their conversation when Shepard admitted to the relapse. “He was like: ‘So we need a stronger plan. I was faltering. I have to do some emotional work to figure out why I wanted to use again.’”

He also shared his side of coming clean about his problem to Bell and Padman, who had grown suspicious. (He said he tells both women everything.) He recalled how he gave them his remaining pills and said, “Please help me.”
