ACTRESS MAIA CAMPBELL HAS KICKED HER DRUG ADDICTION, NOW LIVING A HEALTHY LIFE. By Healthy Black Woman
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.
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.
