During a recent appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, the 54-year-old actress spoke candidly about her journey, revealing that at one point she was taking between 18 and 20 Vicodin pills per day.
When Oz asked how much money she had spent on drugs each month, Dash guessed about $5,000 to $10,000. “I lost everything,” she added.
“That’s what stopped me. I almost died,” Dash recalled. “My kidneys were so infected that my blood was septic, and my organs were shutting down. So, I got rushed to the hospital and I had to have a full blood transfusion and I was in there for three weeks. And by the grace and mercy of god, I lived.”
