Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known by his stage name Eminem, has spoken about his addiction to prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Ambien, and Valium. Eminem’s struggle with prescription drugs peaked in a December 2007 overdose on methadone. He had first bought methadone from a dealer asserting it was “just like Vicodin, and easier on liver.” Eminem continued to buy more until collapsing in his bathroom one night, after which he was rushed to the hospital. Eminem began exercising and running excessively, and effectively went sober on April 20, 2008. Friend Elton John was a mentor during this time; John would call Eminem once a week to check on him.
