Delilah went on to insist that she "wasn't a drug addict" and had ended up addcated to the pills because of how much she was prescribed by the doctor.
She said: "I wasn’t like a drug addict, but my body was dependent on it [Xanax] because of how much the doctor had prescribed me.“
While it was "amazing" for the influencer to feel cured, she went on to claim that she had been classed as a a "medical risk" and was asked to leave the hospital.
She explained: "It was amazing. It was really hard at first being there but everything seemed to work and I cut down so much. I was super excited to just get cured of everything,” Hamlin said. “But unfortunately, I was a medical risk, so I was politely asked to leave after three weeks of being there."
