Several media outlets reported in 2005 that the once missing actress had been found in the hospital receiving methadone treatment with a collapsed lung, heart infection, Hepatitis C, and arms covered in track marks.

According to a 2008 NY Mag article she has moved on from her "random dudes sprawled on the couch" phase.

Today she is best known for her role as Nicky in Orange is the New Black where she doesn't have to try hard to play the role of a drug friend inmate. Before that she was best known for her role as Jessica in American Pie and Vivian in Slums of Beverly Hills.

This report has been updated to include a radio interview in which she talks about her history with drugs and other struggles.
