Steven Adler recently checked into an undisclosed rehab center, forcing his band ADLER to postpone its summer tour.
Comments Adler: "I picked up a bottle and drank. This occurred a few times and that is a few times too many. I knew that this had to permanently stop. That is the moment I picked up the phone, before it got out of hand, to get help.
"I had kicked hard drugs several years ago and now it is time to get rid of the urges of drinking alcohol.
"I am at a great facility and will stay here until I am comfortable to be home to work the program on my own.
"I love you all for understanding, being patient and supporting my decision.
"Like my peers, I will beat this too, so I can return to music and beat my drums!"
