He says he's not on drugs but he's going back to "focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery"

Yeah okay.

Yikes! Sounds like a relapse. Addictions like these can take years to recover from, if the person recovers at all. He seems like a nice guy who has some problems. Hope he gets healthy and finds his footing again.

Wow... that is ashame. I hope he does recover... rx pills are a nasty nasty addiction, and are rising in popularity among teens and young adults. So sad.

Good luck to him.

I heard more people are addicted to prescription drugs than the illegal ones. Not uncommon, I have know a few little old ladies seemingly addicted to their pain pills.

For someone who had so much promise his career has been a disappointment. Also, he went from being a cute, preppy looking guy to looking like complete "drekkage". Sadly, his drug and alcohol usage has caused him to age very poorly and his charm actually depended upon his looks.

People like Perry are so stuck on being famous rather than having talent. Just don't see him having any more significant roles in front of the camera. This shouldn't cause him to relapse he should just do something behind the camera.

Good luck to him. But a tired story really w. someone like this? Its scarcely entertainment. Its sickening the media makes it into a reality show when its a major cause of divorce etc. I lived w. someone with these issues. Its a nightmare. Its bad enough therapists and "doctors" make good coin talking on Dr Drew about this stuff.

Personally Im sick of addicted celebs who go on tv and talk about it....Dr. Drew show with Mackenzie Phillips- ugh. I mean really were she anyone else she'd be dead or lifetime in jail by now.

loads of people are addicted to prescription pills but since they don't buy them off some scary dude on the streetcorner and they're not illegal, it's not so frowned upon...

Its the same double standard the American media uses to hype all the celebs and their addictions. Its a sick society these days.
