Takes a usual ‘reality’ check for someone to realize their ingestion of either drugs or alcohol is out of control. Guess in time, he’ll realize the DUI was a good event creating a mindset that was no longer the denial that is often the mindset of an alcoholic or addict.
Hope his rehab. goes well for him and his future life is more balanced with sobriety and stable interactions in all aspect of his life.

-Substance abuse-
as defined is a maladaptive pattern of substance use manifested by recurrent and significant adverse consequences related to the repeated use of substances

-Substance dependence-
is more serious than abuse. This maladaptive pattern of substance use includes such features as increased tolerance for the substance, resulting in the need for ever-greater amounts of the substance to achieve the intended effect

It said he entered for substance abuse . Who knows which for sure, not me ..
We do know what his problem is, actually.
It may be minor or major ..
Anyways, I feel sorry for him and it’s good he is getting care..

While I think Stamos is a great guy and wants to do the right thing, I’m sure it helped that insurance companies probably refused to insure him in his roles in his new projects unless he got help and they received positive reports. He’s lucky, the cops treated him really well too. Hope rehab helps him on the road to recovery.

Sometimes the people who seem to have the most fun in life turn out to have the most problems.

I am glad he is getting the help he needs. Addiction is a big problem in Los Angeles. They always run ads for Cliffside Malibu during Days of Our Lives.

One thing I have to say about that title of the Full House revival. “Fuller” just sounds immature. “More full” sounds more appropriate. What has happened to our diction in America? 🙁

Fuller House sounds like you’d find a fuller brush salesman…lol…Full House: The Next Generation would be better with the show focusing on the next generation of Tanners

I think it is really good to know he is getting help,everyone has problems.so no need in pointing figures at him. When I was 23 I got hit by a drunk driver,l was pregnant and lost the baby at least he is trying to get help.maybe he will realize all the things and real son why he is drinking and find out there is a happiness out there with out drinking

The Olsen twins absence from the Full House reunion fueled this downward spiral.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
