To people around the world, Charlie Sheen’s erratic behavior in recent months has been likened to watching a train wreck. To his father, actor Martin Sheen, his son’s addiction to alcohol and drugs is a disease “as dangerous as cancer.”
“Charlie is dealing with the most profound problems and addiction. It’s a rollercoaster ride…we deal with it every day,” said the senior Sheen.
Despite a strong religious background, and turning his son into police some years ago, Charlie has resisted his family’s attempts to get him into a treatment program. It is believed by many that Charlie Sheen will have to hit rock bottom before seeking treatment for his addiction to drugs and alcohol.
