Lisa Marie, who shares actress Riley, 33, and late son Benjamin, with ex-husband Danny Keough, struggled with addiction for a long time, but in 2019, she shared how she was "grateful to be alive."

"I was recovering after the [2008] birth of my daughters, Vivienne and Finley, when a doctor prescribed me opioids for pain," she shared of the twins she shares with Michael Lockwood. "It only took a short-term prescription of opioids in the hospital for me to feel the need to keep taking them."

"[It's] a difficult path to overcome this dependence, and to put my life back together," she stated. "Even in recent years, I have seen too many people I loved struggle with addiction and die tragically from this epidemic. It is time for us to say goodbye to shame about addiction. We have to stop blaming and judging ourselves and the people around us … That starts with sharing our stories."
