Dr. Phil McGraw isn't wasting any time with Nick Gordon.

In a clip released from the upcoming Dr. Phil Show special featuring Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend, Gordon seems to be completely beside himself with grief over the loss of Whitney Houston and her daughter's ongoing health crisis.

"Mom, I lost the most legendary singer ever, and like, I'm scared to lose Krissi," he sobs during his intervention. 

Although his mom tries to tell him to calm down and just pray for Brown, Gordon continues to hyperventilate and even loses his cool as soon as Dr. Phil pitches the idea of checking into rehab. But he doesn't disagree. He owns up to the choice, but he becomes upset again when Dr. Phil tells him to be strong.

"You can't help Bobbi Kristina the way you are," Dr. Phil tells him. "You've got to man up."

But Gordon insists he has been "so strong for so many people for so long," and can't continue to do it. "So please don't tell me to man up," Gordon adds. Remaining staunch in his opinions, Dr. Phil tells Gordon, "Yes, I will tell you to man up."

E! News confirmed that Gordon checked himself into a treatment facility after his sit-down with Dr. Phil. It's unclear what the exact reason behind the check-in was, but prior to his decision he was tweeting emotional material that alluded to suicide.

"I'm so hurt I wanna do myself in," he tweeted. "I know I have to [stay] strong." 

A source tells E! news Gordon remains in the facility where he has finished detoxing. "He is doing well and making progress and is moving into the next phase of rehab," the source says.

A sneak peek that was also released also showed how much pain Gordon has been in since Brown entered the hospital on Jan 31. His very public feud with her father, Bobby Brown, has only escalated since he continues to claim Houston's ex barred him from visiting his girlfriend.

Bobby's camp, however, insists Gordon "declined" to visit Bobbi Kristina when given the chance.  He claims that the 22-year-old is "not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

The intervention, which seems to focus more on getting Gordon help than exposing family dynamics, airs this Wednesday.
