About Stacey Dash’s drug addiction
According to reports, Stacey Dash first tried drugs when she was 8 years old. Her mother, Linda Dash gave her her first line of cocaine eight years later, when she was sixteen years old. Stacey Dash then developed a drug addiction that spanned her twenties. Luckily, Dash later got clean.
Sadly, she relapsed when she was prescribed Vicodin to help with painful fibroid cysts. Hydrocodone, sold under the brand name, Vicodin is a prescription opioid that is often prescribed as a painkiller for moderate to severe pain. This substance can cause physical dependency even when taken as prescribed and has a high risk of addiction if misused. In order to fund her Vicodin addiction, Stacey Dash spent an estimated $5000 to $10000 each month. She added that she was taking eighteen to twenty pills per day.
“I’m not blaming doctors at all because it was my choice to take more, you know? It was my choice to take that extra one even though I wasn’t in pain. I chose to do that because 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 got addicted. It’s no one’s fault but my own.”
As a result of taking too many pills, Stacey Dash almost died. Her kidneys became infected and her blood was septic. Dash had to get a full blood transfusion and was in the hospital for three weeks. In 2021, Stacey Dash celebrated her 5th year of sobriety.
