She had enough close calls
Jenelle Evans has been more open about her troubled life than ever before, and we want to listen to every word she has to say so that we can better understand where she’s coming from. In a new interview, Jenelle opened up about her experience with drugs and why she felt the need to turn to something that could kill her just to get some relief. After she nearly lost her life one day, she knew that it was time to stop and face her fears.
In her upcoming book Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, Jenelle holds nothing back about her past and all of the trauma that she suffered.
One of her darkest times is when she became addicted to hard drugs, and they almost cost her her life.
Jenelle found drugs with a mystery man named William, but she didn’t give them up when she lost him and hooked up with a guy named Keiffer. This guy was happy to turn Jenelle’s home into a dangerous drug den, and the couple was filmed freaking out over lost drugs then nodding off on camera.
Jenelle was deep into heroin and admitted to shooting up numerous times a day. That kind of heavy drug use can be lethal, but Jenelle couldn’t stop until one fateful night. She explained in an interview with Ken Baker of E! News, “I think my low point was with my drug issue and the whole heroin thing, I almost overdosed and died. I was trying to run away from my problems.”
Jenelle finally realized that her biggest problem was heroin, and she needed to get help for it.
