Jason Wahler is Another Celebrity in Need of Drug Education

by Mike Miller March 21, 2014

Each time we read about another tragic death attributed to drug addiction and overdose we can only hope it helps others get clean. Of course, experience is the best teacher, but the wisest can certainly learn from the mistakes of others.

Jason Wahler is the latest celebrity to open up about his battle with substance abuse and addiction in the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death. As reported in www.people.com.

On February 6th, the former The Hills star wrote a personal essay for The Huffington Post, in which he explained how he deftly kept his addiction a secret from his friends.

The 27-year-old admits that he would host parties at his house in L.A. where there would be 50-100 people raging out of control. While everyone thought he was enjoying the party as much as they were, little did they know he was secretly going into the master bathroom and snorting as much coke and drinking as much alcohol as he could.

Wahler – who appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2010 and has completed several stints in rehab – says the death of Hoffman at 46 serves as a reminder of his own, intense battle with substance abuse.

Unlike some other major celebrities who never made it out of active addiction alive, Hoffman was able to put a face to recovery. It's my hope that his passing isn't in vain, and that I can continue to educate more people about how important it is to not only get into treatment if necessary, but also to continually stay connected to prevent relapse. Taking an online drug course is a good place to start.
