About Addiction ...

"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."

Todd, I am also a recovering addict with 18+ years clean. Your comments on the Piers Morgan Show to Charlie Sheen were right on target. I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor and a visiting Professor in Chemical Dependency at a university. Your advice to Mr. Sheen were on point and illustrative of your years of recovery. I particularly liked your comment that the person who suggested that Mr. Sheen "rehabilitate at home needs to be slapped". It was gratifying to hear you represent recovering addicts and alcoholics in a positive light. The program does work, if you work it. Contrary to the negative things that Charlie Sheen has said about us "losers" in AA. Thanks Todd, for your insights, comments, and positive representation.
ILS,
Roy M.
