Stacey Dash is opening up about her past addiction to Vicodin.
While making a recent appearance on Dr.Oz the Clueless actress revealed that she had a “serious addiction to pills and that she would take 18 to 20 Vicodin a day.”
The Vicodin filled that hole inside of me. It filled that anger. It calmed that anger down. It slowed my brain down. It gave me the ease so that I could deal with life. That’s how I became addicted. It’s no one’s fault but my own.”
Her addiction almost cost her her life. “My kidneys were so infected that my blood was septic, and my organs were shutting down. That’s what stopped me. I almost died.”
Stacey Dash shared that she has since been sober for five years and counting.
“I just celebrated five years of sobriety. I’m clean, five-years. And in these five years, my blessing- the greatest blessing is that not only have I been able to be honest with myself and become a better person,” she said.
We’re glad to see that Stacey is doing better. We will keep her in our thoughts.
