"I have a tendency to really stuff things ? like, I don't really express certain feelings." ? Jack Osbourne


Rehab Helps Jack Osbourne Get To Root Of Addiction Problems
07.03.2003


Jack Osbourne entered a California rehab center three months ago looking for a quick fix to his addiction to the prescription painkiller OxyContin. What he found instead was at least a bit of insight into the emotional triggers that laid the foundation for his addiction.

"I went in there with the mentality of 'I'll do my time. I'm just going to get out of here and I'll be fine. Give it a week or two and I'll be back to square one,' " Osbourne said. "But I did a lot of soul-searching."

Jack spoke for the first time since his stint in rehab for an "MTV News Now" special report, premiering Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET/PT (Jack's complete interview will appear on MTVNews.com when the show premieres). The show will be followed the next day by a repeat of MTV News' "True Life: I'm Hooked on OxyContin" at 6:30 p.m. Jack said the insight he found in rehab ? as well as the sense of clarity ? allowed him to find the root of his addiction.

"[You discover] all this stuff you don't really know about your character, like who you really are," Jack explained. "For so long, you just don't know because you're so full of chemicals and stuff. You just get thrown off.

"I have a tendency to really stuff things ? like, I don't really express certain feelings," Jack continued.

Among the emotions that Jack kept contained were frustration and confusion in dealing with his newfound fame as well as concern about his mother's health after she was diagnosed with cancer.

"That sh-- hurt a lot, and I was constantly just drowning it," Jack said.

Jack said he began drinking at age 13, but that in the last two years he had also begun to use Vicodin, Valium, Xanax, Dilaudid, Lorcet, Lortab, Percocet, and marijuana in addition to OxyContin.

We'll have much more from our interview with Jack as well as more on the dangers of OxyContin abuse in the days leading up to our Jack Osbourne "MTV News Now" special report.

I sort of feel belligerant about Jack Osbourne. I don't need him to be a spokesperson and a public example of his own drug mis-use. Sorry, but thats how I feel.
