Demi Moore Gets Candid About ‘Breaking the Cycle of Addiction’
Actress Demi Moore is reflecting on her past struggles.
Over the weekend, "Extra" spoke with Moore, who was honored as Woman of Year by Friendly House, a residential recovery program for women. As for why the cause was so important to her, she shared, “Addiction is in the history of my family and I know truly how destructive it can be, and to be able to give women who don't have the finances or resources this opportunity is remarkable, where they are human beings and not a number on an insurance form.”
Along with praising Friendly House for the work they do, Demi pointed out, “The fact that they give women a second chance at regaining their lives with such dignity and breaking the cycle of addiction and doing it in a way that isn't out there for everyone and it's a beautiful, beautiful place.”
During her speech, Moore opened up on how she felt when she sought treatment in 2012. She revealed, “I feel like there are defining moments in our lives that shape who we are and the direction we go, and early in my career, I was spiraling down a path of real self-destruction, and no matter what success I had I just never felt good enough.”
