We struggle to understand how anyone could become so embroiled in something so physically and emotionally destructive and financially devastating.

The stories of Hollywood tragedies due to drug and alcohol abuse are numerous and tragic. From Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston to Amy Winehouse and now Johnny Lewis, it seems like substance abuse ruins the lives of some of Hollywood’s most talented people.
