I was very saddened to read this article about an ex-RTÉ star entering treatment for alcohol addiction. Addiction affects so many people and it’s a hard battle to fight. I’m glad that this person is seeking help and I hope that they are able to find the strength to overcome their addiction. It’s also important to remember that addiction is not something to be ashamed of and that people who are struggling with addiction need support and understanding. No one should have to go through this alone.
