It’s been two years since The Mighty Ducks alum Shaun Weiss overcame his drug addiction after looking unrecognizable in a mugshot years ago. Weiss celebrated his sobriety with a hopeful post earlier this year. Since then, he has been open about his sober journey. While sharing his story of addiction, the actor opened up about how his life as a child star led to his battle with drugs.

The Mighty Ducks star broke down how his heroin ad meth addiction began on the YouTube show Addiction Talk Live. It wasn’t just an overnight switch for Weiss, as he revealed it all started with his one-year apartment lease running out. Around the same time, he had broken up with his fiancée, with whom he shared the apartment. The breakup was an emotional ordeal for the former child actor, leading to him trying meth to cope with his feelings. At the same time, his father had passed away, and his Hollywood prospects were drying up after a role fell through.
