'In the House' Star Maia Campbell Talks About Her Drug Addiction (VIDEO)

After years of battling her addiction to crystal meth, former child star Maia Campbell is learning it only takes two words to start mending the rifts in her family: "I'm sorry."

On the November 17 episode of "Iyanla: Fix My Life," relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant supports Maia -- best known as Tiffany on the '90s sitcom "In the House" -- in apologizing to her stepfather, Ellis Gordon. "Forgive me for taking the family through so much," Maia says. "I know it hasn't been easy. It's been a rough road trying to take care of me. "

Ellis is moved to tears. "Thank you for being there and thank you for making it easier," Maia says. "I knew that I didn't belong to those places because I had someone like you to pull me up and pull me out."

"Iyanla: Fix My Life" airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
