Despite Gladys Corbin’s best efforts to help her daughter-in-law, Sasha continued to use drugs to cope with stress and anxiety, especially after she found out her friend Willow Tait is pregnant, via Daytime Confidential. In July 2022, Sasha was filming an infomercial for Deception when she was asked to model a baby carrier. The presenter placed a doll in the carrier as she carried it, which resulted in Sasha breaking with reality on live TV and starting talking to the doll as if it were her son Liam. Her husband Brando rushed her to the hospital, where she eventually admitted her substance abuse disorder and was placed in a psychiatric detention center, according to SoapHub.
After her release, Sasha refused to go to rehab despite her loved ones’ best attempts to convince her, though she agreed to outpatient therapy through Soap Central. Unfortunately, Sasha missed her first date, which led to a falling out with Brando. She has yet to receive the proper treatment to treat her substance abuse disorder.
To make matters worse, Sasha recently discovered that slimy reporter Smoltz (David Lautman) was working with Sienna (Cynthia Zitter), the makeup artist who had offered her drugs, to try and get Sasha to relapse suffering and admitting her addiction on tape so she could sell the story on soap operas. When Sasha confronted the pair, Smoltz taunted her by bringing up Liam. Enraged, Sasha then vandalized Smoltz’s car and was immediately arrested. Unfortunately for GH, many fans are disappointed that all of Sasha’s storylines seem to revolve around her affliction. Hopefully the character has finally hit rock bottom and can start getting her life back on track.
