English Pop Star Admits to Drug Addiction
Sarah Harding, the English singer-songwriter and member of the pop group Girls Aloud, has recently admitted that she was once addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs. Harding revealed that she was addicted to sleeping pills (Zopiclone) and alcohol for four years, and it took her three weeks of intensive detoxification and rehab to get her off the powerful sedatives. The pop star claims that “”I’m just glad I survived. My drinking was out of control and I was addicted to sleeping pills. It was an awful combination.” She also credits her lifestyle to her problems with her past addictions admitting, “I never even enjoyed getting drunk before the band. The drinking was more to give me more confidence — especially when I was going through my little wild-child stage. It was trying to maintain that image that got me in all this trouble.”
It comes as a surprise to few that popular musicians and performers often experiment and gradually become addicted to many different drugs and alcohol, but everyday people also struggle with addictions. The lesson for everyone that struggles with addiction that can be taken from Harding’s story is that she found the right professional help which has allowed her to focus her spare time on healthy alternative habits. Sarah has a strong social support system and she has started to pick up the habit of running and walking with her dogs in order to get back on track. It’s crucially important for addicts to find the professional help that best fits their needs like Sarah did—and for those living in New York (NY) and New Jersey (NJ) Seabrook House is an excellent option.
