Addiction is a brain disease, and while there is no cure, there are ways to appease the monkeys on the addicts’ backs. Support groups, therapy, and medication help, and all three options are usually incorporated into rehab. As celebrities share their stories about their experiences with clinical care, they remind everyone about not just a serious problem, but a beautiful journey to embark.
The “Take It Off” singer is stronger than her critics believe. Ke$ha is an open book about everything, from her sexual assaults to her eating disorder. In Chicago, Illinois, the pop princess entered a rehab for bulimia nervosa. “That first day at the treatment center was the scariest of my life. I was terrified and vulnerable. I feel stronger now, strong enough to admit that I needed help and strong enough to have faced it head on,” she wrote in a piece for Elle UK. Her stay lead her to more than one battle, though. She confided in her doctors about the sexual abuse she has survived for a decade.
The heartfelt confession continues to stir controversy because people either believe Ke$ha or her purported predator, her producer Dr. Luke. Hopefully, justice will be served soon. Until then, Ke$ha stands tall as a human rights activist and role model for women everywhere.
№2. Demi Lovato
The 2008 Camp Rock star, Demi Lovato, is beautiful inside and out, but her own self-image shows an ugly reflection. She binged on cocaine (even smuggling the stimulant on her flights) every thirty minutes, but rehab really helped her in recovery and self-discovery, but not without discomfort.
“Treatment was so difficult at first, I remember walking around saying ‘I’m in prison!'” Even though her stint was painful, she is now grateful for the stay. She is healthy and happy, dealing with her past by becoming an ambassador for Secrets “Mean Stinks” Anti-Bullying Campaign. Lovato has finally given her heart a break.
№3. Gerard Butler
The Scottish hunk, Gerard Butler, is known for his roles in various blockbusters such as: 300, The Bounty Hunter, and Train Your Dragon. His lesser known roles reside in the confines of a rehab. In 2012, the actor attended the Betty Ford Clinic for alcoholism and opiate addiction. “The Scottish star injured himself yet again in December 2011 when he shot a surfing scene for Chasing Mavericks.
‘I started taking more, and I started taking them very quickly. Maybe a stronger person wouldn’t have needed to go [to rehab]. But I’m glad I did it,” the actor asserts in Men’s Journal. Strong people admit they need help, and Butler proves he is strong where it counts; he is not just physically fit, but mentally.
