Addiction and its repercussions affect everybody. When celebrities misuse alcohol or other substances, they are much like anyone else at risk of having substance use disorders. Their activities, as well as the results of their actions, are recorded in magazines, on television, and on the internet. The world is aware of whether a star enters rehab or overdoses on a prescription.

Heath Ledger

According to a coroner’s report, actor Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose of prescription medications. The 28-year-body old’s had traces of six medications used to treat illnesses such as anxiety and insomnia. Two weeks ago, Ledger was discovered face down on the bed of his Manhattan flat. Reports that his body was found on the floor surrounded by prescription tubes and tablets were initially dismissed. Six prescription medications were discovered in his bedroom and bathroom, though.

Anna Nicole Smith

Smith has been getting opioid shots in her ass as well. A blood infection from one of those injections triggered a 105-degree fever on Monday before she died. Smith’s friends insisted on taking her to the hospital to have her fever treated, but she declined. Perper believes her death on Thursday might have been avoided if she had followed the advice. Smith defied the stereotype of a Hollywood B-lister. Although other second-string actors melted away after their 15 minutes of fame had passed, Smith continued to appear in situations that became difficult to ignore.

Jimi Hendrix

It’s safe to believe Hendrix’s early death was caused by a cocktail of medications he took in his life. He was just 27 years old at the time. The details surrounding Hendrix’s disappearance, on the other hand, are hazy. Monika Dannemann, Hendrix’s mother, said Hendrix took nine Vesperax sleeping pills (18 times the recommended dosage). That may have resulted in his death. He choked on his own blood, according to the doctor who first treated him. It’s easy to black out entirely after a night of heavy drinking (or drugging) as the body tries to throw up some of the toxins. However, if the drunken person is unconscious, he or she is at risk of choking and dying.

Elvis Presley

Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, and would go on to become one of the most well-known singers in the world by the time he died on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42, in his Memphis mansion, Graceland. Though Elvis’s death claims to have been caused by heart disease, the cardiac event is now thought to have been caused by the rock star’s long-term and extreme substance addiction. Elvis Presley, like many other entertainers at the time, was a frequent user of opioid drugs such as opiates, barbiturates, and sedatives. The performer’s blood was reportedly found to contain high doses of opiates Dilaudid, Percodan, and Demerol, as well as Quaaludes and codeine when the toxicology report of his blood was returned from analysis several weeks after his death.

Chris Farley

An unintended overdose of cocaine and morphine killed comedian Chris Farley here last month. The toxicology study from the medical examiner was the last piece of evidence tying the comedian to a long list of drug-addicted entertainers. Farley’s name, however, has now been added to the list of artists, writers, and comedians whose habits led to their deaths, including Charlie Parker, Lenny Bruce, River Phoenix, and Jonathan Melvoin. Farley’s death bears startling similarities to that of a comedic idol he never met: John Belushi, who died 15 years ago from a similar opioid cocktail, cocaine-and-heroin “speedballs.” 

Whitney Houston

Murray said he gave Jackson doses of valium, lorazepam, and midazolam the night before he died, then propofol the next morning. Shortly after, the musician passed away. Murray did not procure propofol lawfully to cure Jackson, according to authorities. According to an autopsy report released Wednesday, the opioid was found in Houston’s body, providing the most thorough account yet of how the Grammy-winning singer died just hours before she was to perform at a pre-Grammy Awards gathering. Houston had definitely been dead for at least an hour by the time an associate discovered her face down in a bathtub on the afternoon of Feb. 11.

Michael Jackson

Jackson’s body had fatal doses of the drug, according to an autopsy. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal psychiatrist, advised police that he had been administering the singer regular doses of propofol by IV for around six weeks to relieve insomnia. Murray also administered sedatives such as lorazepam, midazolam, and valium to Jackson in order to aid his sleep. Murray said he gave Jackson doses of valium, lorazepam, and midazolam the night before he died, then propofol the next morning. Shortly after, the musician passed away. Murray did not procure propofol lawfully to cure Jackson, according to authorities.

John Belushi

Bill Wallace, Belushi’s personal trainer and bodyguard arrived at the bungalow around noon to deliver a typewriter and tape recorder that Belushi had ordered. Wallace discovered the star in bed, not breathing, after letting himself in with his card. Wallace called Brillstein, who made his secretary call for the paramedics after unsuccessfully prescribing CPR with little result. Brillstein drove to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, assuming Belushi would be taken there, and sent his deputy, Joel Briskin, to Chateau Marmont. Belushi’s death was subsequently attributed to “acute cocaine and opium overdose” by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. There were enough drugs in his body, according to the investigating pathologist, to kill even a stable man, which Belushi was not. The autopsy report also identified respiratory congestion with distended lungs, a swelling brain, a bloated liver, and obesity as anomalies.

Mac Miller

Miller, 26, was discovered dead by his assistant at his San Fernando Valley home on Sept. 7, 2018. Miller was best known as Ariana Grande’s ex-boyfriend but was also a respected rapper in his own right. Miller died from an acute overdose of opioids, cocaine, and alcohol, according to an autopsy. Authorities discovered drugs in Miller’s home that they suspect came from Pettit, as well as proof that Miller smashed and sniffed oxycodone supplied by Pettit. Pettit, on the other hand, has just been charged with supplying the drugs, not with playing a significant part in Miller’s murder. Miller’s assistant told investigators he was feeling positive about the projects he was working on but had a tendency to slip into drug binges.

Though there have been several conspiracy theories over the years, Los Angeles police reported at the time of Marilyn Monroe’s death that she died of a self-administered opioid overdose of sedatives including Nembutal and chloral hydrate inside her Brentwood home in Los Angeles. At the age of 36, she died on August 5, 1962. Clearly, her futile wish to grow up to be wealthy and famous had come true — while the pain of her childhood remained. Anxiety and depression plagued the young actor, who sought immediate relief from drugs and alcohol.
