Substance misuse and addiction don’t change based on your status. You might be surprised to find that the population who misuses substances the most have steady employment, may have a family, and don’t actually fit the stereotype that has been perpetuated through modern media.

Celebrities are proof that substance use affects people across all socioeconomic levels, social statuses, and geographic areas. However, in the same way, that substances can affect anyone, the treatment provided by recovery centers can offer real, genuine recovery support.

The team at DeCoach Rehabilitation wants to remove the stigma surrounding substance misuse while also deconstructing the barriers that prevent people from getting the help they need.

Famous People Who Have Struggled With Addiction

We share this list with the intention of highlighting that even the ultra-wealthy, hyper-succesful people among us experience their own struggles with addiction. While also noting that the problems at the root of their substance misuse may be relatable.

Ben Affleck

This Academy Award-winning actor and director has received treatment for alcohol addiction in recent years, as well as back in 2001. His most recent stint in recovery is going very well, as he looks to be moving forward in a healthy and constructive way.

Jamie Lee Curtis

In Curtis’ case, she experienced addiction as a result of pain medications, even reporting that her substance misuse evolved to the point that she was stealing medication from family members. These days, Curtis no longer battles her addiction. She is now a mother, has continued to find success in acting, and has even gone on to publish books! A truly inspirational story of recovery.

Sir Elton John

Elton John is an excellent example of recovery success, overcoming his battles with drug and alcohol addiction nearly three decades ago. If this is a testament to recovery programs 30 years ago, imagine how programs today have advanced and improved!

This living legend has expressed that the battle never truly ends for an addict and that it requires constant vigilance and dedication to uphold your sobriety.

Robert Downey, Jr.

Today, he is the star of Iron Man and Marvel’s multi-billion dollar franchise, along with being the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. But it wasn’t too long ago that he battled with addiction to multiple substances and encountered run-ins with law enforcement. It took the help of friends, family, and intensive rehabilitation – but his story is an incredible example of the true potential you can achieve when you remove substances from your life!
