Stacey Dash Reveals Her Past Struggle With Opioid Addiction
Actress and conservative pundit Stacey Dash appeared on The Dr. Oz Show on Thursday and opened up about what she describes as her “deepest, darkest secret.”
Dash revealed that she fought a secret battle with opioids, particularly Vicodin, for several years. She says that while she was deep in the throes of her addiction, almost no one in her life knew what was going on.
Dash is actually no stranger to addiction. In fact, her relationship with drugs began at a very early age. She explained that both of her parents were also addicts, even revealing that her own mother gave her her first line of cocaine when she was just 16 years old. After being introduced to drug use in her teenage years, she went on to have an abusive relationship with a boyfriend in her early 20’s, which only exacerbated her drug use.
