What Happens When Celebrities Share Their Stories of Addiction and Recovery

Celebrities are individuals that so many people look up to. While there are countless people who think that celebrities have everything they want in life, the reality is that celebrities can also struggle with substance abuse issues. However, there are many celebrities who overcame drug and alcohol addiction and have gone on to share their moving and powerful stories. Although taking this step is something that is deeply personal, it’s something that can trigger another person who is also struggling with substance abuse to take steps toward working through their own addiction problems and finally getting the help that they need.

However, what no one realized is that she was also struggling with a series of mental health issues which ultimately led to substance abuse. Lovato has been open and honest not only with her substance abuse but also with her relapse issues which is one of the leading reasons why so many of her fans love and respect her.

Robert Downey, Jr. 

Robert Downey, Jr. was known as the bad boy of Hollywood. Although he was a talented actor, for a long time his talent is something that was overshadowed as a result of his substance abuse. In order to save not only his career but also his life, he made the decision that he was going to commit himself to his sobriety. He worked through an addiction treatment program and was able to regain his fame and his life. 

Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck is another example of a Hollywood actor who has struggled with alcoholism. Alcoholism is something that runs in Affleck’s family and it’s something that has plagued him for years. He has suffered from very public relapses and has been open and honest regarding not only his substance abuse but also his issues with mental health. Although he continues to struggle at times, there are many people who look up to him for his determination to continue to battle against addiction. 

Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore rose to fame at a young age. As a result, she was exposed to substance abuse not only from those in the Hollywood family but also from other Hollywood celebrities. She ultimately started to drink and use drugs before her teenage years and ended up committing to a treatment program in order to save her career as well as her life. Today, she is proud to proclaim that she has remained sober and still remains a much loved and respected Hollywood actress.
