The recent death of Amy Winehouse has shown us that the celebrity life isn’t always glitz and glamour but, instead, may be plagued with problems of its own.
A friend of Ms. Winehouse has said that in past years Ms. Winehouse had given up drugs but began drinking due to boredom and the inability to leave her home without being chased by paparazzi, bringing up the obvious question, “Is it possible for celebrities to fully recover from their addictions to alcohol and drugs?”
“While fame and fortune can buy you many things, unfortunately it can’t buy or guarantee recovery,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “It’s true that many celebrities get caught up in drug and alcohol addictions but, it’s also true that they can recover from those addictions, provided they seek proper treatment. There are several celebrities who have either dabbled in drugs and gotten away from this practice before it was too late; and, there have been those who have had a full-blown addiction and were able to conquer their problem. Robert Downey Jr., Robin Williams and Drew Barrymore are just a few examples of celebrities who were able to overcome the demons of their addiction. Proper treatment and support is always key.”
As cost is always a factor in obtaining any type of medical treatment, it’s commonly thought that drug and alcohol rehab is available to only for celebrities and the wealthy. Fortunately, that’s not true: effective, affordable drug rehab is available at Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center.
