Artie Lange: “Drug Rehab Saved my Life”
Comedian and actor Artie Lange, most known for his part on the radio broadcast The Howard Stern Show, is a great current example of the healing powers of drug rehab. Like many others in Hollywood, Lange has had a pretty dark past with substance abuse, drug use, and alcoholism. Lange has had extended periods of addiction to heroin, half hearted attempts at rehab and therapy, and even a disturbing suicide attempt in 2009. This lifestyle lead him to dark, unhealthy, and life threatening habits but he’s proof that the right treatment can change a person’s life.
Lange had an extensive drug rehab stint back in 2010 that according to him literally saved his life. For the first time Lange recently spoke about his rehab stint and how his counseling and therapy changed his perspective and turned his life around. Lange is now sober and he currently hosts a sports talk radio show on DirecTV called the Nick and Artie Show. This story really exemplifies a few important characteristics of the drug rehab process. Lange had apparently unsuccessfully tried drug rehab a few times in his life, but obviously wasn’t committed to the process so it never worked. His heroin addiction had the best of him, and because of his lifestyle and habits, he simply quit rehab and went back to his ways. Lange had a particularly dark incident with his suicide attempt, but this seemed to be the time where the light bulb went off in his head where he knew that enough was enough. Now after a committed and dedicated attempt at drug rehab, Lange has his health back and he claims to feel fantastic.
Committing to the drug rehab process is extremely important, and so is finding the right treatment center. Some programs are structured to cater to large groups, and this often leaves many people without the individual treatment that they need to recover.
