Former “Full House” actress turned Netflix series “Fuller House” star, Jodie Sweetin (a.k.a. Stephanie Tanner) speaks up about her recovery and life post-drug addiction. This March, Sweetin will be celebrating five years clean and sober. And with her new Netflix hit, she has even more to be grateful for.
Jodie Sweetin Drugs, Addiction, and Recovery
In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Sweetin says, “My life is amazing. I will have five years [of sobriety] in March. It’s given me a lot of gratitude.” The Hollywood actress has battled addiction to cocaine, meth, along with other drugs throughout her life. Jodie first started using drugs at 14, just shortly after her 8-year stint on Full House.
It became abundantly clear
Clear that she was struggling with a real problem when she spoke at Marquette University about her recovery in 2007 while high off a coke bender. In just a short period of time between 2006 and 2007, Sweetin estimates that she had spent about $60,000 on her addiction according to Today. Jodie Sweetin also wrote a book about her recovery in 2009 titled, unSweetined: A Memoir, which she now admits she was not entirely sober for. With five years under her belt now, we are excited to see the new Fuller House star continue to shine brightly, providing hope for all those still struggling with addiction.
