Jenelle revealed her shocking heroin addiction on the ‘Teen Mom 2’ season four reunion, and admitted that getting herself off of the hardcore drug was harder than she ever imagined. Watch her emotional confession.
Jenelle Evans has been alluding to her use and addiction to heroin ever since she broke up with her ex Kieffer Delp for good in September, but the troubled Teen Mom 2 star revealed the extent of her terrifying addiction — and how an overdose almost killed her.
Jenelle Evans Reveals How She Got Hooked On Heroin
Jenelle said on the May 6th Teen Mom 2 season four reunion that she turned to Kieffer after she and her ex-fiance Gary Head broke up. But his relationship led to a life of hardcore drug use.
“Everything just got out of ontrol, and I needed his support. And then when I got his support, then he wanted me to do the drugs. That was the first time in my life I ever tried it,” Jenelle told Dr. Drew during the reunion special. “And I didn’t like it at all, and I was throwing up every five minutes. I had to go to the hospital like three different times, get IVs hooked up into me.”
Jenelle also said she was having panic attacks and anxiety attacks and insomnia, which Dr. Drew attributed to heroin withdrawal.
“I never even knew what withdrawing was,” Jenelle said — and added her withdrawals went on for a month.
Jenelle Evans Breaks Up With Kieffer Delp After Overdose
The troubled 21-year-old mother to Jace, 3, also revealed how she finally got to stop using — and she had to break up with Kieffer in the process.
“I left [Kieffer]. I woke up at 5 o’clock in the morning because I felt like I was about to die, I felt like my organs were shutting down. And I called my mom, and I said ‘please, I know you haven’t been talking to me for three weeks, but please come help me. I need your help,'” Jenelle revealed, and said she left Kieffer when they were at his mom’s house in New Jersey. “Before I left, and he shot [me] up so much, I passed out. And I woke up, and I said, ‘what happened?’ And he said ‘oh, it happens sometimes.'”
Dr. Drew revealed that was an overdose, and people usually pass out — and then die. Jenelle was lucky to survive her terrifying addiction.
