Lea Michele Supports Cory Monteith Through Substance Abuse Struggles
“I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this,” Lea told People. “I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
What a tough thing to do — Lea is being totally selfless. What a recovering addict like Cory needs as he starts his road to rehabilitation is unconditional love, free of judgment. That’s what Lea is giving him. A lesser person might hold Cory’s substance problems against him and let them drag the relationship down, but Lea is proving that she truly loves Cory and will be there for him no matter what.
Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab
On Sunday night, Mar. 31, Cory’s rep released a statement confirming that he was committed to getting sober. “Cory Monteith has voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction,” the rep said. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Cory has had a long troubled past with substance abuse. In 2011, he told Parade magazine, “I was out of control,” Cory said. “[I used] anything and everything, as much as possible. I had a serious problem.”
“I’m lucky to be alive,” the Glee star added.
Substance addiction is a constant struggle, but with Lea at his side, Cory clearly has the love and support he will need as he works towards recovery.
