After walking off set during his first interview on The Dr. Phil Show three months ago, Nicholas Brendon has returned for another shot at facing his struggles with substance abuse and depression.
In October, the troubled actor attended a 90-day rehab program in Florida for his depression, after his attempted suicide was caught on camera.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Brendon tried to slit his left wrist twice while in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., in September, just one week before he was arrested for felony robbery, criminal mischief and obstruction of breathing in an exchange involving his 33-year-old girlfriend.
"I love you all so much and I truly do appreciate all of your love and support," he wrote on Facebook when checking into rehab. "We're going to beat this #kickingdepressionintheballsack #loveyou #huglife."
But the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor appears to be in better spirits for his follow-up interview.
During a preview of his return to Dr. Phil, set to air Tuesday, Brendon embraces his demons and willingly shares the "darkest parts" of himself on national TV.
"I feel a lot better than I did last time. I think I need more help than I realized," he tells Dr. Phil, after admitting to "reeking of booze" on set during his first interview. "I just felt this was the right thing."
In an emotional moment, Brendon also confesses: "I look at my life and I just think, you know, how things could've been different.
Tune in for the explosive interview on Tuesday at 3 PM & 7 PM ET, on CBS.
