Celebrities Raising Drug Addiction Awareness and Ebb Tide Treatment


We are used to seeing our favorite celebrities while watching TV and movies, but what about the celebrities who speak out politically or to raise drug addiction awareness and substance abuse. Are their opinions worthwhile? Can they help educate the American people about drugs? Maybe hearing an actors story of addiction and achieving sobriety can help Americans struggling with addiction. It may be enough to know you are not alone.


Well known celebrities are sometimes more well known than neighbors and some family members and their messages can have far-reaching effects on the public. With many celebrities having experience with alcohol or drug dependency, they can bring the issue and their experiences to light. If they have had treatment, they are able to encourage the public to seek treatment and to not be ashamed to do so. Many celebrities attend private treatment facilities, so their speaking out on the subject may be the only way to make the public aware of their struggles with alcohol or drugs.

Famous Celebrities Who Have Fought Alcohol or Drug Addiction

  • Matthew Perry, a famous friend on Friends has said that helping others who share his struggles is the thing he likes best about himself.
