“Something needs to be done about all the artists we’re losing to drugs, because I’m tired of it,” Travolta said recently.
The two-time Oscar nominee, who’s graced dozens of films since the 1970’s, said that his interest in the issue prompted him to offer an impromptu speech at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre’s 44th Anniversary Gala, asking friends and attendees to take action.
“I don’t want to lose any more artists. It’s too much already,” Travolta said. “There’s people that are looking for solutions, and their solutions are drugs and I understand completely. But when you have a program that is designed to help you solve those problems differently, but more immediately getting you off of drugs – cleaning your body of the adverse effects of those drugs, and then getting a new start, it’s not just a detox program; it’s a detox program that takes full responsibility for the reasons you started to begin with.”
Travolta’s wife, Kelly Preston has also spoken in regard to her own struggles with substance abuse, saying, “I’m so different… Now I don’t drink anymore. I don’t smoke anymore, I don’t do drugs anymore. All of those come with an ‘anymore.’ I used to do everything and a lot of everything.”
“With drinking, I just decided that I wasn’t always at my best.” said Preston. “It’s different in that I’m so much wiser. I know myself so much more now.”
