Steven Tyler’s History With Substance Abuse

Tyler has been open about his decades-long struggle to remain sober. His substance issues were so bad that in 1988 his bandmates intervened and forced the rock icon to go to rehab.

The incident left Tyler bitter and angry at the rest of the band for years to come, but now understands they were trying to help him. 

“But today, because of that moment… I am grateful and owe a thanks to them for my sobriety,”

Tyler spoke about sobriety on Joe Rogan’s podcast. 

Tyler says that sobriety is an everyday struggle, and while he misses drinking and drugs, he knows that every time he has relapsed it has cost him “everything.”

Sobriety is hard and it is a constant struggle to avoid triggers that cause you to slip. Tyler’s foot surgery led to a relapse. Medical procedures are a common way for addicts to fall of the wagon.

Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery for Steven.
