The following year, she began working with a psychiatrist who recommended she take Klonopin. Although she was done with cocaine, Stevie became strongly addicted to the tranquilizer, and was under its influence throughout the better part of the late '80s and early '90s. During this time, she continued to tour and turn out independent records as well as albums with Fleetwood Mac, including the solo effort, The Other Side of the Mirror (1989),
Behind the Mask with Fleewood Mac (1990) and a solo compilation, Timespace (1991).
After years of addiction, weight gain, and exhaustion, Stevie fully detoxed in 1993, and ended her ties to Klonopin. The next year she released Street Angel, another solo album. As her health improved and she regained energy, Stevie returned to the studio to record new songs for multiple soundtracks.
In 1997, Fleetwood Mac reunited and released The Dance. The related tour earned them $36 million. Stevie also put out a boxed set dubbed Enchanted, and added two songs to the soundtrack for Practical Magic (1998). That same year, Fleetwood Mac was given one of the greatest honors in the world of rock: induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Stevie went on to work with rocker Sheryl Crow on Stevie's 2001 solo release, Trouble in Shangri-La. She also put out a new album with Fleetwood Mac, Say You Will, in 2003. Since then, Stevie has recorded and performed as a solo act and as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Her band, unfortunately, had to cancel part of their 2013 tour because of John McVie's ill health.
That same year, Stevie filmed an appearance on the cable drama American Horror Story. She played herself on the show in an episode that is expected to air in 2014.
