Aaron Carter sat down for a telling two-part interview with “The Doctors,” during which he spoke candidly about his drug use. The troubled musician submitted to drug testing during the show, shocking the show’s hosts with his results.
While the test came back negative for cocaine and meth, Carter, 29, did test positive for a dangerous combination of benzodiazepines and opiates.
“What scares me about the drug panel is that your sister (Leslie Carter) perished from a drug overdose,” Dr. Travis Stork warns in a preview for the episode, part one of which is set to air on Wednesday.

“You have a mixture of benzodiazepines with opiates, which is how many people accidentally can die. These medications — and I’m speaking now purely from the doctor’s perspective — can be very, very scary.”
Carter owned up to using the medications, admitting that he occasionally turns to “the streets” to obtain the prescription drugs.
Still, the “Aaron’s Party” singer said he doesn’t use illicit drugs and is careful not to mix medications, many of which he actually has been prescribed for various ailments and mental health-related issues.
“I’ve never smoked crack in my life. I’ve never smoked meth in my life. I tried cocaine when I was like, 16. My doctor has prescribed me Xanax, Klonopin, Oxycodone…I don’t mix medications, I do it to relieve stress or pain or angst,” he said.
