Meek Mill – I Was Addicted To Opioids
During a recent press conference, Meek Mill opens up about his addiction to a pain killer. The 29-year-old rapper says he felt the need to hide his addiction to opioids out of fear he’d be sent back to jail for probation violation. Opioids are primarily used for pain relief, including anesthesia. Earlier this week, Kanye West revealed that he too was addicted to opiods. Opening up about his experience, Meek says,
At one point in my life, I was actually addicted to opioids. I think it should be a line drawn where you have a drug problem where you’re scared to tell your probation officer you have a drug problem because you don’t want to be sent to prison for years.
Meek says he told his p.o. and she helped him by putting him in a rehabilitation program to get the help he needed.
