Jason Wahler admits that it was reality television which made him turn to alcoholic beverages at age 18. His partying lifestyle got him into problems sufficient that he entered rehab 7 times and was detained half a dozen times, all under the influence of alcohol. Wahler admits he experimented with meds but that alcoholic drinks was always his drug of preference. He partied hard and experienced blackouts whenever he was particularly inebriated. He says he fails to recall getting detained and confesses that the blackouts scared him.
After looking at what his dependency was doing to his household, that’s when Wahler made the decision to clean his act up. After keeping sober for 67 days he appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Jeremy London and Janice Dickinson and remains as sober today. In spite of his stint on Celebrity Rehab, he offers that the show’s mental health specialist, Dr. Drew, doesn’t offer a lot of help and advice, nor does Doctor. Drew stay in touch with the famous people after they depart the show.
