‘Party of Five’ and ‘7th Heaven’ star Jeremy London told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview about his battled with addictions, claiming a blossoming career is what paved the way for him to take prescription medication.
“I was treated like royalty,” Jeremy, whose twin brother is actor Jason London, said. “It was hard for my brain to accept.”
Four years after marrying actress Melissa Cunningham and the birth of their son Lyrik, Jeremy is going through a divorce. Why? His addiction to prescription medication, which effectively had a great influence on the end of his marriage and the end of his career.
Things were so bad at times, he says. “There were times I didn’t care if I died. I felt like I was losing everything.”
Now Jeremy is trying to get his life back on track, and prove that he can be a good father to his son. He entered rehab in September last year to get a grip on his addiction, and says life is much better now.
“I’m learning it’s much easier to deal with life with a clear head. There are so many things I wish I could have done differently.”
