  1. I am glad that they were able to get treated for their substance abuse. We need to be happy for those that have completed treatment.

  2. Who is the scuzz in the rehab who ratted him out?

    It’s not just a “weakness.” It runs in families. Some people can drink without getting into trouble. Others can’t, and sooner or later they find that out. It’s not how much you drank or how often you drank. It’s what happens to you when you drink.

    You people think it’s a joke? I pray you never see a loved one struggle with this disease. Your ignorant opinions and arrogance will be forever changed.

    Sorry to hear this! I admire him as an actor. We must all remember alcoholism is a disease. Implanted in our DNA as other diseases are!

    • Jeff says:

      alcoholism is not a disease, it was convenient to call it that to remove the stigma but its a compulsive disorder. Its not a disease.

      • Jacques Strappe says:

        Disease or mental illness (compulsive disorder), it is bad to drink excessively and will ultimately kill you due to some alcohol related malady. There is a contrary school of thought about alcoholism NOT being a “disease” but that debate is best left to the medical and scientific experts. The alcoholism gene, the wife beating gene, the murdered gene, the obesity gene, the sexual addiction gene and the stupid gene all have yet to be identified. One thing is certain we humans are all capable of behaving very, very badly. I though Jon Hung was a sexual addict but I guess I am confusing him with some other celebrity.

      • Sam Smith says:

        Jeff you ignorant slut

      • Dodi says:

        Sorry to tell you, Jeff, but it absolutely is a disease. Look up any reputable research on addiction in the last 5 – 10 years. Look in the DSM-V or ICD-10. Not sure where you’re getting your information from, but it is not a compulsive disorder.
