Drug-Abuse Treatment Prevented Stevie Nicks From Having A Child
The very treatment that helped Stevie Nicks battle her cocaine addition may have cost her the chance at motherhood. According to Nicks, the eight years she battled her addictions should have been her “prime” years. She says that instead of meeting with a psychiatrist and being on the prescription tranquilizer Klanopin, she could have “met someone”.
“That was just a stupid doctor making a groupie mistake and just wanting me to come in there, tell him about all my music friends and young Hollywood and that nearly ruined my life and nearly killed me,” she said. “That’s eight years that I could have. God knows, maybe I would have met someone, maybe I would have had a baby. That was my prime eight years. That was a big mistake. Everything else was exactly how it should have been.”
