Matthew Perry is sharing more about the expense of his dependency fight.
The Friends star, in an interview with The New York Times releasedOct 23, stated by the time he was 49 years of ages, he had actually invested a big part of his life in rehabilitation centers, approximating, “I’ve probably spent $9 million or something trying to get sober.”
Perry– whose narrative Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing states his years long battle with dependency– shared his early ventures with compounds, from drinking Budweiser and Andr ès Baby Duck red wine at 14 years of ages prior to broadening to Vodka and drugs like Vicodin, Xanax and OxyContin as he grew older.
“I would fake back injuries. I would fake migraine headaches. I had eight doctors going at the same time,” Perry kept in mind. “I would wake up and have to get 55 Vicodin that day, and figure out how to do it. When you’re a drug addict, it’s all math. I go to this place, and I need to take three. And then I go to this place, and I’m going to take five because I’m going to be there longer. It’s exhausting but you have to do it or you get very, very sick.”
