Renee Graziano has had a rough start to 2022.
"I take Adderall every single day of my life," the Playing With Fire author replies in the sneak peak clip of her appearance when asked by Dr. Drew Pinsky if she was on any drugs at the time of her arrest. "I have ADD, HDHD, PTSD," she continues, as she clarifies all of her medications have been prescribed by a doctor.
"My brain is very congested," Graziano tells Dr. Pinsky before being overcome with emotion. "If you had to live in my brain, which I wish everyone in the world could, you probably wouldn't make it through a day."
The former VH1 star explains that the stresses of her family, past sexual assault and abuse, as well as her addiction have taken an extreme toll on her mental well being. "I am still standing," Graziano notes of her journey.

As OK! previously reported, Graziano was taken into custody on January 4 after she crashed her 2020 Nissan Murano into a parked vehicle on Staten Island.
The former consigliere of the Bonanno crime family was charged with driving while impaired by drugs after she admitted to authorities that she had taken Adderall earlier that day. Witnesses at the scene reported that Graziano was incoherent, had watery eyes and slurred speech.
During her appearance on the daytime show, Graziano also discusses getting over the trauma of her ex-husband, Hector Pagan, Jr., allegedly cheating on her.
"So the ex-husband was sleeping with some hooker," the New York native boldly reveals before the Celebrity Rehab host, 63, cuts her off to dole out some advice about breaking toxic patterns in relationships.
"Next time you see somebody you are interested in, you should be looking for butterflies not lighting bolts," Dr. Drew informs the troubled reality star.
