Will Steven Adler be the next celebrity to succumb to drugs?

If you have ever watched Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew on television than you are familiar with Steven Adler's ongoing struggle with addiction. Steven Adler's claim to fame began most notably in the 1980's as the drummer of the band Guns and Roses. Adler was fired from the band for his drug abuse and established a few bands of his own that were not successful. Most recently he has been in the band Adler's Appetite.

Steven Adler has been on the show Celebrity Rehab twice to conquer his addictions and has also been on the show Celebrity Rehab Presents:Sober House, a follow up care facility for recovering addicts. Dr. Drew, the physician caring for the addicts on Celebrity Rehab has had his hands full with Adler, publicly referring to the rock star as “the problem child” of the group in rehab. With so many celebrities succumbing to the disease of addiction, will Steven Adler be next? It would certainly be no surprise if Adler were to make headlines similar to others that have passed away before their time. It would however, be a life of value lost forever, and that is something society will grieve.

The power of addiction is so strong that even with suffering serious health issues the drummer still has yet to overcome his addictions. Adler has suffered from a heart attack,been in a coma, and had a stroke in 1996, which rendered his face partially paralyzed. One important message one suffering from addiction can gleam from Adler is the Adler's ongoing effort. Relapse is a part of addiction, and it may take many times to fully gain control and command over the disease. The real message that the rocker is sending is to keep on trying. It is important that the fight continues and in cases of addiction, when you give up you die.
We can only wish Steven Adler the best of luck, and hope that he makes it to the other side of life, sobriety. Rock on.
