Doug Hehner Reveals Secret Addiction He Didn’t Tell Jamie Otis During MAFS Season 1



Married At First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner recently shared some personal news on their podcast, Hot Marriage Cool Parents. Doug revealed that he has been struggling with opioid addiction, which he has been trying to overcome. Jamie took to Instagram to express her thoughts on her husband’s revelation, admitting that she had no idea about his addiction during their time on the show. She also revealed that her family has been affected by drug addiction in the past, making this a very personal issue for her. Despite this, she commended Doug for opening up and hopes that their story can help others who may be going through similar situations.

Jamie and Doug first met during the first season of Married At First Sight and are considered a success story from the show, as they never got divorced and even started a family. However, Doug’s addiction was a secret that he had been keeping from everyone. Jamie discovered it while she was pregnant with their daughter Henley Grace in 2017. She found an empty Suboxone wrapper in the toilet and immediately searched online to find out more about the medication. She was devastated when she realized that her husband had been struggling with addiction.

In her Instagram post, Jamie admitted that drugs were a deal breaker for her, but she’s glad that she fell in love with Doug before finding out about his addiction. She also shared her personal experience with drug addiction in her family, which has affected her deeply. Despite this, she doesn’t think people with addictions are bad people and believes that it’s the drugs that are the problem.

Doug’s openness about his addiction is commendable and shows real courage. Jamie hopes that by sharing their story, they can help others who may be struggling with addiction. It’s important to remember that social media photos don’t tell the whole story and that people may be going through personal struggles behind closed doors. Jamie and Doug’s story is a reminder to approach everyone with kindness and understanding, as we never know what battles they may be facing. Married At First Sight airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.

Married At First Sight alums Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner opened up about the latter’s opioid addiction that was kept secret from everyone. The couple first met during Married At First Sight season 1 and ended up getting married. They are the success story from that season, as Jamie and Doug never got divorced (unlike many others on that show) and even started a family.


In the latest episode of their podcast Hot Marriage Cool ParentsDoug made a huge and very personal revelation when he admitted to having an opioid addiction, which he is still trying to overcome. Jamie took to her Instagram page to open up about the podcast discussion and her thoughts on the secret that her husband held for many years.

It was so secret, in fact, that she had no idea about his addiction when the two of them appeared in Married At First Sight season 1. “He eventually told me about his addiction to pain pills but he kept the med he’s currently on secret by flushing the wrappers,” she revealed.

MAFS Alum Jamie Otis Admits Drugs “Ripped” Her Family Apart

It wasn’t until Jamie was about seven months pregnant with their daughter Henley Grace, who was born in 2017, that she discovered what Doug had been doing. While her husband was outside, Jamie went to use the bathroom and to take a shower when she “saw an empty Suboxone wrapper in the toilet. I reached right in there & grabbed it.” After searching online to find out about the medication, she “immediately fell crying. I thought for sure my husband was a drug addict.” In her Instagram post, Jamie admitted that “drugs were a deal breaker for her,” so she’s glad she fell in love with him before she found out about his addiction.

This is a very personal issue for Jamie because, as she mentioned on Instagram, “drugs RIPPED my family apart.” She explained that her stepfather physically abused her mother while high, and “the cops would show up at our trailer & I’d watch them haul him away to jail over and over again.” Unfortunately, the drug issues in her family didn’t end there, as her mom “eventually succumbed to drugs too.” After her mother’s death, she was granted custody of her younger sisters when was only 20 years old. Jamie made it clear that she doesn’t think people with addictions are bad people but that it’s the “drugs that are bad,” a view that she learned from Doug.

Doug should be commended for opening up about his addiction. Clearly, both he and Jamie hope that by sharing their story, they can help others in similar situations. It can be easy to look at social media photos and make assumptions about people’s lives and the family they’ve built. No one truly knows what’s going on behind closed doors. It takes real courage for Doug and Jamie to open up in the way they’ve done. Hopefully, their future updates reveal that Doug is making great progress on this very personal journey he’s going through.

Married At First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on Lifetime.
