After becoming "dependent" on Xanax, Delilah Belle Hamlin claims she sought medical attention.
In a new Instagram video posted on Tuesday, Nov. 2, Delilah Belle Hamlin states she became addicted to Xanax and other prescription drugs when a doctor overprescribed the medication, causing an overdose.
“I found a psychiatrist and he over-prescribed me. He over-prescribed me with one medication that one of my friends takes for 10 milligrams and he gave me 20 milligrams a day,” the 23-year-old model revealed.
“And then he gave me three milligrams of Xanax a day, so my body got dependent on Xanax number one, and number two I over-dosed,” she continued.
“I didn’t mean to at all. I over-dosed on this one medication called Propranolol. And I took Benadryl with it and for some reason; I ended up in the hospital.”
“I wasn’t a drug addict,” Hamlin stated, “but my body was dependent on [Xanax] because of how much the doctor had prescribed me,” she explained.
Hamlin found a treatment clinic in Arizona that might address her health problems with the help of her family, including her parents Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin.
“I thought this place was going to be like, a place to, like, cure me, just cure everything, help me,” she shared. “Everything got to the point where sometimes I couldn’t even walk to the toilet.”
“But unfortunately, I was I think a medical risk so I was politely asked to leave after three weeks of being there,” she added. “That was really hard because, in my mind I was like; well if I’m too sick for this place then I’m too sick for anywhere.”
Hamlin began having seizures “left and right” in July due to brain inflammation and the seizures “scared” many of the physicians at the institution, prompting them to urge her to leave. She arrived home on Monday.
“I would really love some support and some recommendations if you’re in the LA area,” she concluded. “I’m on a really strict diet. I take a crazy amount of supplements to detox my body. I’ve been sober from alcohol for two months.
