Dennis Rodman Struggling with Alcoholism
Former NBA player Dennis Rodman has unfortunately experienced a fall from grace since his playing days with the Chicago Bulls. Just last year Rodman was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame, but problems in his personal life have apparently made him turn to alcohol to cope. Rodman is apparently broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, his wife divorced him, and he can’t make the child support payments. His manager claims that the stress from these issues along with the fact that he isn’t able to see his kids has led to his drinking problem to worsen.
Rodman joins an unflattering list of famous former athletes or actors that have blown their impressive live earnings only to be currently broke or bankrupt—and a common ingredient in these scenarios is usually a drug or alcohol abuse worsening their financial and personal problems. The reality of life for all people is that things are going to happen that are going to be hard to deal with. No one is exempt from this reality and it’s important to understand that abusing alcohol or drugs to cope with problems is a slippery slope that only makes everything worse. Many people make the mistake of piling a drug or alcohol addiction on top of their current problems. There are situations in life that are very difficult to deal with, but there are many more healthy and practical ways to deal with them.
Substance abuse is a path that many people unfortunately travel down, but it’s not the end of the world for them. There is advanced treatment available today to overcome alcoholism and drug addiction—but there needs to be a level of commitment for lasting results. A half hearted effort will most certainly result in a half hearted recovery, which then becomes a revolving door of ineffective treatment efforts.
