Meth is bad

| PEOPLE – Mama June Shannon is focused on getting her life back on track.

On the most recent episode of Mama June: Family Crisis, the WE tv reality star opened up about her past and present drug use — including Fioricet, a prescription pain medicine used to treat the symptoms of tension headache, and Xanax, a benzodiazepine medication used to treat anxiety and panic disorders — during a tearful reunion with daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon.

“The only reason I sold the house, we was dead f—ing broke,” June, 40, admitted on Friday’s episode.

But for Pumpkin, “it’s been the first time since we’ve been older that you’ve ever been strung out.”

“The thing is like, you can’t get clean and then Geno not get f—ing clean,” Pumpkin said.
