Jeremy London speaks about his addiction

Published: April 23, 2020

‘Party of Five’ and ‘7th Heaven’ star Jeremy London told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview about his battled with addictions, claiming a blossoming career is what paved the way for him to take prescription medication.

“I was treated like royalty,” Jeremy, whose twin brother is actor Jason London, said. “It was hard for my brain to accept.”

Four years after marrying actress Melissa Cunningham and the birth of their son Lyrik, Jeremy is going through a divorce. Why? His addiction to prescription medication, which effectively had a great influence on the end of his marriage and the end of his career.

Things were so bad at times, he says. “There were times I didn’t care if I died. I felt like I was losing everything.”

Now Jeremy is trying to get his life back on track, and prove that he can be a good father to his son. He entered rehab in September last year to get a grip on his addiction, and says life is much better now.

“I’m learning it’s much easier to deal with life with a clear head. There are so many things I wish I could have done differently.”

Other celebrities who have battled addictions include Johnny CashDrew Barrymore, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Mickey Rourke, to name only a few.

    I congratulate Mr. London on his willingness to seek treatment and speak out regarding this lousy disease. I too lost my profession and my marriage ended in divorce. This isn’t an unusual story, unfortunately. Until those of us in recovery are willing to tell our stories of recovery, this disease will continue to destroy lives, careers, marriages, and anything else until it finally kills the person unlucky enough to have the disease. The level of ignorance that exist regarding this disease, including the health care professions, is appalling. It’s time the knowledge gained through research makes it to the frontline doctors and nurses who treat those who struggle with addictions of all kinds.

    This disease can be treated successfully, and long term remission is possible. Addicts aren’t “bad” people trying to become good. They have a chronic, progressive, potentially fatal disease and want to get well.
