Ashley Benson Anti-Addiction Promise

Celebrity News and Gossip: Pretty Little Liars star made anti-drug pact due to her family’s addiction issues in her past.

This talented actress may have just starred in a role that played a drug-taking party girl, but in real life, Ashley Benson has vowed to never try or experiment with drugs. Growing up, Benson watched addiction destroy the lives of the people that she loved. She stated to Cosmopolitan magazine that drug and alcohol abuse was an issue on both sides of her family, and that she’s seen her family’s lives ruined and them going to jail due to their substance abuse. Ashley Benson is fully aware that an addiction can start from that very first time; she never wants to let herself be out of control with her body.

Dennis Rodman Rehab Again

Celebrity News and Gossip: Former NBA star checked into rehab for his alcohol addiction again.

Dennis Rodman has reportedly entered rehab- again! His first time going to rehab for his alcohol addiction was back in 2008, where he went to a treatment in Florida. He then relapsed and appeared on Celebrity Rehab in 2009, and ended up relapsing yet again just before the show hit the air. He is now checked into a treatment facility in New Jersey, where he is reported to be there for at least 30 days. He knows that he struggles with addiction, and wants nothing more than to be a good father.

 Desperate Housewives’ Shawn Pyfrom Speaks Addiction

Shawn Pyfrom- AKA Andrew Van de Kamp, Bri Van de Kamp’s gay son- has posted a heartfelt and quite personal blog which revealed his long-term battle with the disease of addiction. The 27-year-old actor, who played the roll of the son of an addict/alcoholic (Bri) on Desperate Housewives, played a character that had numerous encounters with drug and alcohol abuse in the show; it turns out that he was acting from personal experience. In the blog, Shawn wrote about his struggles and poor decisions that he had made during his use, but can now proudly call himself an addict with 5 months clean and sober (full story here).

Even celebrities can struggle with addiction. If you, or someone you love, is suffering from a substance abuse problem, please contact us today. There is hope outside of addiction and recovery is a reality.
