"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.

Cured he says but
I wonder if he would break out in a sweat if they put some crack and a pipe next to him.

I love this man!!! If you haven't had a chance to read his book, you really should. It is a good read and he is so brutally candid about every aspect of his life. From reading his book, I seriously think that I could make crack cocaine in my microwave, even though I've never even touched the stuff! Seriously, though, I'm ecstatic to see Todd healthy and doing well. I'd just like to see more of him on television and the big screen. He's a very talented actor and a wonderful human being. Go Todd!!! :)

Todd still acts. He had a recurring role on "Everybody Hates Chris" for two years, and he does a lot of straight to DVD stuff. He was even on The Young & the Restless several years ago. Work is work. I'm glad that he's still alive and sober.

#45 ICDC stands for International Career Development Center. It's one of those for-profit schools that take their students' money and when they "graduate" they're lucky if they can get a job that could help them pay back their school loan. Such a joke of a school. Good luck getting any of ICDC's school "credits" transferred to another school.

I'm taking nothing away from Todd Bridges though. He's a success story and I'm happy he's teaching others about his past addictions.
