Breaking Amish star Sabrina Burkholder has revealed she nearly died after relapsing on heroin, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In a shocking Facebook post, Burkholder, 32, told friends she had a year sober from heroin when she was “in a mood” and wanted to get her hands on some drugs before her birthday in June.

“Sean got some molly and some heroin,” Burkholder said of her friend. “We did the molly and then Sean did some heroin and handed me a capful of it. I asked him if it was all for me because it looked like a lot. He was like ‘yeah happy birthday,’ so I mixed it up and shot it.”

“I remember feeling very weird and that was my last concious [sic] thought. Half an hour later I woke up surrounded by paramedics. I remember seeing Jethro staring at me with tears running down his face.”

Burkholder went on to explain that her boyfriend Jethro Nolt was in a state of shock, and her friend performed CPR after her “heart had stopped beating.”

“Jethro was kneeling on the ground crying out to God to save me. Sean and Jethro both told me later that Sean tried to stop after he realized I was gone, but Jethro kept screaming at him to keep on going and wouldn’t let him stop giving me CPR,” Burkholder wrote.

While she was unconscious, Burkholder wrote that she had died and gone to heaven for a moment and had seen her late mother.

“My mom put her arm around me and said ‘Why are you here you still have work to do.’ And I wanted to stay.”

She said she was administered Narcan twice before she was revived. Demi Lovato was similarly saved by Narcan after her July 24 overdose.

On August 4, Burkholder said she was headed to rehab.

The reality mom has had her share of troubles with the law.

In May 2016, she was arrested by the Lancaster police department in Pennsylvania on a slew of drug charges.

According to cops, she sold an undercover police officer a Tylenol container containing nine stamp bags of heroin.

She was charged with manufacture of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, and criminal conspiracy, and served jail time.
