  • 3. Her Time With MGM  MGM and Judy Garland had a love-hate relationship. The studio put Judy on a very strict diet, plus a mix of benzedrine and phenobarbital (aka amphetamines). But not only was the amphetamines used for dieting it was also to give a lot of the actors energy to keep making a lot of films in a short period of time. Barbiturates where given to a lot of the actors/actresses so they could sleep at night. This began Judy’s addiction to the amphetamines and barbiturates.

Being more self-confident and higher self-esteem
  • 9. Successful or Not?  As you may have guest Judy Garland wasn’t successful with treatment. We had 24 sessions and there seemed to be no improvement. We both mutually agreed that treatment wasn’t helping and she decided to go somewhere else for counseling.
