Clueless’ Stacey Dash Recalls “Taking 18 to 20 Pills a Day” Amid Her Addiction Battle

After she left the hospital, Dash continued to abuse drugs. “That again was when I thought, ‘OK, Stacey, then give up. You can’t do this life.’ And I almost did something stupid. I didn’t,” she recalled. “I called my sister and I told her ‘Come over right now.’ And then I called my attorney and I said, ‘I need help.’ And she sent me away. Within eight hours there was an intervention guy at my house and I was on a plane to Utah to go to rehab….It wasn’t until the last 10 days that I said, ‘Oh, snap. I’m an addict.'” 

Today, Dash is five-years sober. “I just celebrated five years of sobriety,” she said. “I’m clean, five years. And in this 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, I’ve been able to understand my parents and that they did love me and that they were doing the best they could and they were just sick. They were addicted.”

Dash credits her faith for helping her get sober and hopes that, by sharing her story, she can help people battling with addiction.

“There is no shame in getting help because that’s what we need,” she said. “And for people who are not addicts, I would ask them to please look at people with more compassion and empathy, understanding because they need help. They need help. They can’t do it on their own.”
