About Addiction ...

12/29/2010 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Diff'rent Strokes" star Todd Bridges isn't just collecting a check to be a spokesperson for a drug and alcohol counselor training program -- dude is putting in hours of work in the classroom.

Todd Bridges Drug Addiction
Bridges was roaming the halls at the ICDC College campus in Van Nuys, CA last week -- where he talked to students about his past addictions ... and explained how substance abuse counselors helped him kick the junk. 

A rep for Todd tells us, "He is excited to work with ICDC and is looking forward to helping out as much as he can wherever he may be."

That's probably the only gig he can get nowadays. He hasn't done acting in years. Where's "Skating with the Stars"?

It's good to hear that Todd is doing so good. He finally got it and is now helping others overcome their addictions. Keep up the good work.

Is he a bigger star than Oksana Grigorieva? He should make another movie with Seth Rogen.

Um, wow...    

Good for him... He's one of the lucky few that kicked his addictions AND still managed to do some good for others... I love how when people are actually doing good for themselves that people on these sites still love to kick them when they're down... (Which should answer WHY so many celebs become addicts!!) You people are disgusting!! I applaud him--just hope he can continue to stay away from the things that fueled his addictions...
