I recently read an article about Matthew Perry and his struggles with addiction during the filming of Friends. It’s really heartbreaking to see someone struggle with a substance abuse disorder, and it speaks to the fact that addiction can happen to anyone, regardless of fame or fortune. I’m so glad that he is now on the road to recovery and has been able to stay sober for the past 16 years. This article is a reminder to us all to be more aware of how addiction can affect anyone, and how important it is to take steps to recovery and support those who are struggling.
Reading Matthew Perry’s story of addiction really brings to light the reality of how mental health issues can affect not just average people, but even those in positions of fame and fortune. His journey to sobriety for the past 16 years is inspiring and a reminder that recovery and healing are possible whatever our circumstances. I’m so grateful for the work he has done to reach this point, and it serves as an encouragement to all those suffering from substance abuse disorders that they can make positive changes in their life. Mental health should never go unnoticed - let’s continue bringing awareness and support those who need it most.
