Famous Celebrities Who Have Battled Drug Addiction and Alcoholism 1 of 2

Here’s the list of some celebrities who have struggled addiction and attained their sobriety in spite of the hurdles of going through addiction recovery in the spotlight.

Daniel Radcliffe


 Who would guess that this Harry Potter star has admitted that he struggled with alcohol addiction? Back in 2010, he called it quits on his alcoholism, got himself into alcohol addiction rehab centers, and got clean.  After a full two years of abstinence from alcohol, he also went to seek tobacco addiction treatment, which involves counseling, stress management, and herbal treatments for his withdrawal symptoms, and also exercises such as swimming, yoga, and running. Now aged 22, he said it was his “personal crusade” to prove that child stars do not have to burn out.

Kelly Osbourne


Kelly Osbourne, an English singer, songwriter, actress, and fashion designer, tells all about her substance abuse past, including spending time in two mental institutions and seven rehab centers. “My Mom put me in the ‘padded cell’ to thwart my addiction,” she revealed in an interview. Her friends and family also pushed her to get clean. According to Osbourne, no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to.

Kirsten Dunst


Another celebrity who found herself in addiction rehab centers in 2008 was Kirsten Dunst, who has played Spiderman’s sweetheart. The actress leads a hard, party-loving life and takes a drink every now and then. Rumors say that she sought help at Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah due to alcohol and substance abuse, but she claimed that she came for depression. Her doctor urged her to take some anti-depressants, which helped her and get back on her feet and meet some professional commitments.

Britney Spears


Oops, she did it again! One of the most influential pop stars has also been in and out of rehab. Revelations about her substance addiction began to surface in the wake of her divorce from Kevin Federline. Erratic displays of public behavior, like shaving off her hair with electric clippers, followed. Soon after, she admitted herself to addiction rehab centers. Now she’s back on track and in the spotlight with new music and a popular Las Vegas show.

Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan’s trips to addiction rehab centers are perhaps the most documented of any celebrity. Yes, she admitted that she was a drug addict, and has used cocaine, but her main problem is alcohol. She also confessed that she wanted to get sent to jail, in a subconscious effort to get the help she needed. After her sixth attempt at trying to get clean, things seem going better for the actress, who has resumed her film career.

Johnny Depp


He has portrayed a lot of different characters, but this pirate also experimented with drugs and admitted to abuse of alcohol. He decided to quit alcohol once he realized he could function just as well with or without it. “I don’t have the physical need for the drug alcohol,” he said. “No, it’s more my medication, my self-medication over the years just to calm the circus. Once the circus kicks in, the festivities in the brain, it can be ruthless.” He is now focused on his children and obviously on his work
