Drug addiction happens quickly, and it can happen to anyone; regardless of age, race, personal background or social standing. It’s important to remember that the disease of addiction doesn’t discriminate. Celebrities, professional athletes, political figures – anyone can become addicted to any chemical substance at any point in time. In fact, we’ve lost a lot of great minds to drug addiction and accidental overdose. Janis Joplin and Sid Vicious died of heroin overdoses in the 1970s. Kurt Cobain took his own life while high on heroin. Allan Woody, Dee Dee Ramone, and Howie Epstein died of heroin-related overdoses in the 2000s. More recently, we lost Mac Miller, Tom Petty, Scott Weiland, Cory Monteith, Whitney Houston, Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith… the list goes on and on. This is just the very tip of the iceberg.
