Struggling with addiction is always a great challenge for addicts and the people around them.
This situation is very familiar to Kristen Bell who has a huge experience with this kind of battle. Her husband Dax Shepard has a history of addiction to many different opiates. In the issue of Playboy magazine, he told the story of his life. Parties were crazy and way out of control while using marijuana, cocaine and a lot of alcohol.
Dax openly describes how extreme was the habit of searching for drugs on the streets. Luckily for both, he passed a journey of rehabilitation and he has been sober for almost 13 years. Kristen was a huge support to him during those tough days of changing habits.
The popular actress has learned a lot and she is willing to share the vision with other people.
She donated $10,000 to organization called Sun Cedar, a team that works with addicts in order to help them to socialize again and get some job. They recover their dignity and values by offering them some creative jobs. Kristen is also known for supporting PATH or People Assisting The Homeless and her contribution is powerful.
When Kristen faced the problem with addiction of her husband, it was definitely a life changing experience. In recent interview, she raises attention that proper approach should be mental and social support instead of court jail.
People do not choose to take opiates willingly, but because of many complex causes. Kristen suggests we should be aware of these reasons and ready to help the people to overcome this situation.
