Maia Campbell off ‘drugs’ & healthy



LOS ANGELES – Maia Campbell is the actress best known for her role as Tiffany on the 1990s television show, “In the House.”  The show starred LL Cool J and was popular for a couple of years.   But when the lights go out and the paychecks stop coming in, that’s when our demons hit the door. Maia struggled through an ugly drug addiction after the show ended, and found herself humiliated by some embarrassing pictures on the Internet.

She made an appearance with Iyanla Vanzant, where she discussed her addiction to Crystal Meth and how she was used by men to feed her addiction. Over time, Maia says that she was able to get off drugs and regain the trust of a family she’d disappointed.

She also had to work on becoming a better mom to her 11-year old daughter. The 36-year old Campbell got her first Hollywood start on the film “Poetic Justice,” starring Tupac Shakur and Janet Jackson.

Maia Campbell Celebrates Her Authentic Self

After a day of supporting ex-child star Maia Campbell as she confronted the guilt and shame of her past, Iyanla wants Maia to reconcile—and celebrate—who she was with who she is now becoming. Watch as Maia looks at photos of her former self and celebrates the victories in her life. Plus, find out how she is doing today.

Recreational drug use is not recommended under any circumstances, but Crystal Meth has been found to be exceptionally dangerous.  The drug is used because it can create euphoria, increased libido and alertness in those who use it.  It also increases self-esteem, self-confidence and sociability.

But the drug is highly addictive, and can lead to hallucinations, hair pulling, obsessive behavior, and other horrible symptoms.   Using the drug for a long period of time can cause agitation, restlessness and permanent brain damage.

Getting away from the drug can be a lifetime problem.


  1. Valarie Cutthecrap Clark

    Not only was she on drugs, but she was also going through mental health issues…her mother wrote about it in a book before she passed. I hope and pray for her successful recovery…she is such a beautiful and talented Black woman.

  2. Happy that she has finally overcome her drug addiction, and hopefully her mental health issues are being helped as well:) God bless this beautiful and talented black woman!

  3. Beautiful???

    Scrub all of that foundation & lipstick off, remove those eyelashes and take out the weave and you have the real Maia Campbell. See mugshot.

  4. I just saw her mugshot and yes she did not look glamorous, but it was a mugshot. And yes she may wear weave, but her hair is still a fine texture, but it was also pushed all the way back, so you could not see it. Make up does not make ugly people look better, she isn’t ugly. It’s easy to talk about someone when they are down. I think people like talking about celebrities because they have things they we do not, so finding something wrong makes them feel better.

  5. hate to say it but once a drug-head always a drug-head… addiction is hard to fix

  6. Many people have overcome drug addiction and have never gone back. The comment once a drug-head, always a drug-head is not true in every case.

  7. I’m happy for her. And may God continue to bless her with more sucess in recovering. Ashame how some people want to see her down, she’s such a nice person outside of the fame. She needs our encouragement to continue not negative criticism. Remember God don’t like ugly. If it was his desire for her to get clean then who are you to criticise Gods work.

  8. I can appreciate a person that steps up and faces the world (people) in the midst of adversity. That takes courage, strength, and being tired enough to not care what some may think. I’m so happy and proud of her and grateful to God for sparring her life. Once a drug head always a drug head isn’t true, I have ten years clean from drugs, prison, and selling drugs. Trauma, depression, and loss are huge triggers for sensitive individuals and for those that aren’t skilled in using their coping mechanisms.

    I’ve been where she was, and God rescued me. How dare anyone talk about the next person’s faults? When it’s a well known factor that NONE of us are perfect, everyone has a fault or a vice. Love lifts, it forgives and supports, it doesn’t make light of any life hanging in the balance, it reaches out to lend a shoulder, hand, ear, and a heart for understanding. I’m so happy for her.
