It appears that lately there has been no shortage of celebrity news involving drug and/or alcohol abuse. Yesterday was a prime example! Indio Flaconer Downey, son of famed Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr., was arrested on suspicions of cocaine charges in West Hollywood, CA. It is sad to see yet another young star caught up in this lifestyle. As you may know, Robert Downey, Jr. had a long history of drug abuse until he got clean and sober in 2001 after a long struggle with cocaine, heroin and marijuana.
They say, 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree'. Robert Downey, Jr.'s father (Indio's grandfather) was an addict, he is an addict and it looks like now Indio might be one too. Perhaps, with early intervention, Indio can find solid recovery like his father to break the family chain of addiction.
If you or someone you love is in need of detox off of alcohol, benzos, opiates, Methadone, or Suboxone, please do not hesitate to call Jennifer Pius or Amy Stewart at 1.877.773.3869 today. Let us help you get clean and stay clean.
