Brett Favre reveals he went to rehab three times

Brett Favre was open about his addiction to painkillers during his playing career. But he has just revealed his struggle with addiction hung over his life for longer than he had previously disclosed.

Favre told Peter King that his 1996 stint in a rehab facility was one of three times during his NFL career that he had to seek in-patient treatment for addiction, both to painkillers and to alcohol.

“That was an MVP year for me,” Favre told King, referring to the 1995 season. “But that year, when I woke up in the morning, my first thought was, ‘I gotta get more pills.’ I took 14 Vicodin, yes, one time. I was getting an hour or two of sleep many nights. Maybe 30 minutes of quality sleep. I was the MVP on a pain-pill buzz. The crazy thing was, I’m not a night owl. Without pills I’d fall asleep at 9:30. But with pills, I could get so much done, I just figured, ‘This is awesome.’ Little did I know [fiancée and now wife] Deanna would be finding some of my pills and when she did, she’d flush them down the toilet.

“I actually went to rehab three times. I saw the most successful, smart people—doctors, professional people—lose it all, ruin their lives. A year or two before you saw me, I went to a place in Rayville, La., just outside Monroe. It was pills then too. Deanna and [agent] Bus [Cook] talked me into it. I didn’t think I had a problem, but they talked me into it. I went for 28 days. When I got out, I was able to control myself for a while. I wouldn’t take anything for a day or two, and I wouldn’t drink. But I was a binge drinker. When I drank, I drank to excess. So when I went in the second time, to the place in Kansas, I remember vividly fighting them in there. They said drinking was the gateway drug for me, and they were right, absolutely right, but I wouldn’t admit it. I will never forget one of the nurses. I had it all figured out. I fought with this nurse all the time. I would not admit the drinking problem. At the end she said to me, ‘You’ll be back.’

“I was back. 1998. Guess who was waiting there when I walked in—that same nurse. This time it was strictly for drinking. I didn’t go back to the pills. I admitted my problem, I was in there 28 days, and it worked.”

Favre managed a 20-year NFL career, while fighting through much of it with a harder battle than anyone knew.

  1. Wow… And what’s his name Josh Gordon was banned for smoking weed, with the final straw being he had a beer on a flight.

    Farvre is one of my all time favorite players, I think telling the truth about his addiction problems will help a lot of people! Addiction can happen to anyone, it’s time to start having real conversations instead of keeping the failed drug policies that have failed so many.

  2. Time for the Favre bashing, because the guy is who he is. Just another reason to love Favre for his true fans. Favre is one of the greatest to ever play, and the fact that he beat addiction should surprise no one. Him talking about it, is a great example. Johnny Football could give him a call now or then maybe.

    What do you suggest? What’s are these failed policies? Listen, you can do all you want policy wise Humans will still get addicted to what ever makes them feel better. I’m presently struggling with an addiction and I know the only policy that will help me is ME. There is no one magical treatment, the first step is wanting to truly quit.

  4. Glad he’s opening up about it. We need to change the stigma of addiction and mental illness, just like we need to repeal and replace the Second Amendment. There, I said it.

  5. Thankfully, he had the resources and supporting cast to get the help he needed.

    My heart genuinely goes out to those who are without people in their lives who care enough, as well as the financial means to get the help they need.

    Thanks for sharing Brett.

  6. Pharmaceuticals are a major problem in this country. We don’t have much in the way of a meth problem up here in Massachusetts like you see in other areas, but our opioid epidemic is out of control. A lot of these people turn to heroin when obtaining pills becomes problematic. Just a bad, bad scene. And not to get too personal, but my lady is in the middle of battling benzodiazepine withdrawals for the better part of THREE YEARS now, after only taking them as they were prescribed to her. The symptoms are unimaginable. I don’t know how she hasn’t offed herself, and I’m dead serious. Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Chris Cornell of Soungarden/Audioslave recently took their own lives, and some people suspect they were unable to cope with bento withdrawal. It’s all too common and not spoken of nearly enough. Fun fact: benzodiazepines are meant to be prescribed ACUTELY, not for more than a week. But shrinks are passing these things out like Tic Tacs as long term solutions, and none of them seem to know that it f you do your research, you’ll find that pharmaceutical companies are paying these doctors tens, and in a few cases, HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars a year in bonuses for prescribing their products. And the government lets it happen because they’re on the take too, Big Pharma is one of the largest and most influential lobby groups in Washington. I’ve already gone on too long, but bottom line: it’s disgusting, and your government allows and facilitates it.

    To tie that back into Brett Favre, we already hear from NFL guys that they get forcefed these painkillers, and meanwhile they can’t take a non-psychoactive CBD cannabis extract to help with their aches and pains.

    As the old saying goes, “If you’re not outraged, you aren’t paying attention.”

  7. Was he high or drunk when he was sending out those pics while with the Jets? I wonder how the woman who helped him thru his addictions felt then.

  8. Good for him acknowledging (finally) his demons. But why isn’t anyone asking where he was able to get all those pills?

  9. Between Favre and Ryan Braun’s friend Rodgers, is there another team that’s had so many addicts at QB?

  10. Are the lives of some Vikings fans so pathetic that they can’t get through one article without ripping on Wisconsin? That’s just sad. Super optimistic every summer, angry and immature the rest of the year.

  11. As a Lions fan and Barry worshipper, I am still salty about Barry having to share that MVP award.

    But good for Brett getting his demons under control, I respect that in any man.

  12. Green Bay has that effect on most people.

    Three MN trolls with the same comment. Sad. But at least ariani was first again. #winning

  13. A day in the life of a Vikings fan:

    …waiting for a Packers article…

    …waiting for a Packers article…

    …waiting for a Packers article…

    …waiting for a Packers article…

    …Packers article!!!

    …Skip over reading article…

    …Scroll to comments section…

    …Copy and paste jealousy-filled post about Green Bay…

    …waiting for another Packers article…

  14. I know it’s easy to scoff at people joking about how boring Green Bay is, but being from Buffalo I know exactly how true that is. All you can do in Buffalo is drink, party, eat, and luckily you’re driving distance from Toronto, Syracuse, Erie, Detroit, and Cleveland. If you’re not careful you can very easily fall into the trap of addiction just from the boredom.

    Good to hear Favre admitting his problem and correcting it. Many pill abusers or alcoholics never accomplish that.

  15. He DID NOT take 14 hydrocodone at one time.. Brett loves to stretch the truth!!!!

  16. Wonder what impact having a pain medication addiction contributed to his iron man streak? Did his body just go numb to all pain?

    I am struggling as well and have actively been getting help for about 15 months. We are the first and last lines of defense, but not the ONLY line of defense. The NFL has been handing out pills like pez in pez dispensers for decades. I can not tell you how many people I have met who have gotten to heroin from pain pills, I can tell you how many I have met who have gotten from marijuana to heroin. That number is zero. Don’t claim to be an expert and this is just my experience, but yeah, I think some policies can and should be changed.

  19. “What’s are these failed policies? Listen, you can do all you want policy wise Humans will still get addicted to what ever makes them feel better.”

    The failed policies are to fill jails with people whose only crime is addiction. The failed policy is to spread opioids across the country thru legal channels until half the population is addicted. The better policies is to provide treatment or look at the conditions that help humans “feel better” without drugs/alcohol. No, it won’t work for everyone; it takes true buy-in from the addict. But many would not slide into addiction if they had jobs/healthcare/homes.

  20. Even as a Cowboy fan I always like Farve. But after being caught sending pictures of his genitals to a female reporter he just seems like a creepo.

  21. An MVP season while binge drinking and choking down handfuls of pills.

    Woo-hoo, now that’s a ringing endorsement!

  22. This is old news he was always known as a partier although the fact that he had been to rehab 3 times yet never missed a game yet Josh Gordon missed years of his career for fighting through addiction? I hate the Drug War.

    It’s been pretty well documented that most of Brett’s pills were acquired through the Packers medical staff and from fellow Packer players.

    That’s BULL, this world has and ALWAYS will have addicts, oh by they way most of the addicts I know have Jobs and health care. You sound like a typical “blame someone” for you addiction, by the way there’s no law against being an addict (so stop the BS), most addicts in jail are there for committing a crime (probably due to their addiction). Bret Farve was a Millionaire with the best healthcare you can have, I could provide a list of wealthy people who are addicts but you know it’s not a money thing. Money just get’s you MORE drugs. I bet you also believe pot to be a harmless innocent drug…

    He’s just another confirmed hater. He’s not the only one. He and others just like him have no redeeming qualities. None.

  27. There was some recent data, the 20 drunkest cities in the US. WTMJ reported on it. Wisconsin had 7 of the top 10 with Green Bay #1. Half–yes half–of all auto deaths in GB are alcohol related. People here tend to view hard drinking proof of authenticity. When data like these come out they laugh with pride. It’s an embarrassment. You wonder, if Favre stays in Atlanta, does he still develop the drinking problem?

  28. Huh no sex addiction rehab in there anywhere? cause sending unwanted unsolicited dick pics (is there any other kind really) is so normal i guess

  29. Favre went to rehab three times…but he changed his mind about going to rehab at least 47 times.

    Strange how all this happened long before he emailed pics of his junk to Jenn Sterger.

  30. Drugs and alcohol are very destructive to many people. I have many friends who are alcoholics but cannot admit it to themselves. I myself smoked weed for years and later drank too often. I decided to give up all alcohol 5 years ago and haven’t had a drop since. Sadly, many people are mentally or physically unable to do this on their own. I give Brett a lot of credit. May his story enable others.

    Unfortunately it seems to be, numerous athletes (male and female) have sent those kind of pictures that we have heard about and plenty of not famous people as well. people have the information of the world in their pockets everywhere they go, and some of the most common things people choose to do with it are; looking cat videos, sexting, checking out the new “memes” and trying to troll on Packer threads.

  34. Redundantperformance, your redeeming qualities are exactly what? Responding to each and every “hater” this perpetuating the never ending circle of back and forth between both fanbases….well done!

    If you dont let us “haters” “pick fights” if you just ignore, maybe it goes away…not you though, you think you’ll have that 1 zinger that will shut everyone up.

    You’re clownshoes dude.

  35. Great story, it’s obvious that after years of debilitating injuries he chose to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.
    It’s simply wonderful that he finally got the help he so obviously needed, regardless of how many times it took.

    Very disappointing that he ended up in Minnesota, where he had the absolute worst season of his spectacular career.
    Not only that, they so inadequately protected him, his consecutive start streak was snapped.
    Just a small blemish though, for a legendary player.

  36. Waffle, yep. And it’s also too bad that GB wasted most of his career by not adequately giving him the teammates he needed. They were so dumb, they did it again with AR. How many consecutive years of HOF play at qb? Its criminal that they both finish with 1 ring. All the while your fanbase defends it.

    his first season in Minny was one of the best of his spectacular career

    He wouldn’t have had the career he had unless he had an “addictive” personality.
    A man that driven is usually a man fighting with excesses.

    Really? His name is Brett. You’d think you’d know that since he was your best shot at getting a championship. Even though he came up short.

  41. Drug addiction seems like it could be an obvious pitfall but alcohol addiction can sneak up on you. Its a trap that anybody can become a victim. The collateral damage of both can be brutal. Brett is one of the lucky ones… he’s still breathing.

  42. Damn so Favre was at the rehab clinic in Rayville?! That’s about 45 minutes away from me; I actually know a doctor that’s been going there for a while now.

  45. Yeah, getting him addicted to pot instead would have been way better. It’s so magical pass the fritos.

  46. This guy just can’t stand to stay out of the news. He want to be the news no matter how he gets in. Sad. I was sad when my Vikes had to go with him because of the mess at the QB they had.

    He and AP should team up and form a BIG EGO club it is all about me but I really am humble

  47. Don’t you love it when Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers or the Packers are featured in here? The haters come out in force with their sharpened tongues and dim-witted comments.
    Why? Because they are so tired of their teams getting beat by the Packers.
    Favre is a feel good story as opposed to so many others who succumbed to their vices. Give him credit for that, even if you hate the fact that he was one of the best QB’s to ever play in the NFL and the single greatest iron man the game has ever had.

    pot is not addictive

  49. While the one-liners and the jokes are cute, addiction especially to alcohol and Opioids is really not laughing matter. Addiction does not discriminate and being probably the newest here to admit an addiction, as of today I’m a 52 days sober, I wish I would have taken it seriously years ago.

    Every night for as long as I can remember going all the way back to like 89 I drank beer every night. Three beers and two Jack Daniels shooters, something I’d buy a pint of jack. I got sick back in April on Easter Sunday with an inner ear infection that was throwing my balance off. Could not drink for a week because I was on meds, so I decided to just keep going with sobriety.

    The craving hits when you least expect it, but you have to fight through it and not give it. The cravings have pretty much subsided but every once in a while especially the weekends and Friday night I crave a beer.

    Although not diagnosed, I still believe I ‘am a functioning alcoholic, nver hungover always went to work – I will be a functioning alcoholic for the rest of my life – I have it under control now but it it happens again I will more than likely seek treatment.

    Thank you for pointing this out. Over a quarter of their population are regular binge drinkers, people like stellar point out how great they are that they’re able to drink so much, and then they get all insulted when people point out that the culture in Green Bay might contribute to the problems of an alcoholic.

    ==========================================================

    That’s just the thing waffle, I am not angry or bitter. I enjoy watching the Vikes win or lose. I used to be like you where it mattered so much to me that I let it dictate my emotions. Then 1 day, I grew up and realized that I had a family, that sports is entertainment, it’s not life or death. I’m sorry that you haven’t grown up yet. Tarkenton in his 2nd stint with team, a year here and there with a moon or favre, does not equate to 26 consecutive years of HOF caliber play by the way, just thought I’d throw that out there.

    That’s the difference between you and I, Minnesota could NEVER win a super bowl and it wouldn’t ruin my life. You on the other hand and most of your packer brothers, hang your hat, your sense of self worth on the accomplishments of others, while all you did was sit on the couch and watch.

    Here is a hint, if you are quoting redundantperformance, you may want to reexamine your priorities.

    It saddens me there are people like you out there that entertainment means so much to you that it’s the highlight of your lives. Not your professional life or your kids and grandids…..the packers mean most to you…let that sink in.

    You people are so easy to mess with- touch on a few keywords and you all come running to defend the pack. I’m laughing at you. I’ve told you what I am doing twice now and you people still respond, you can’t help yourselves. it’s fascinating to watch…

  55. Favre should be commended for bringing this out in the open, he has lived with a lot of pain, some of it self-induced when he signed with the Vikings.

    There is so much truth to your statement.
    The first words that they teach their kids is “13 World Championships”
    Not Mommy. Not Daddy. The sum of their self worth is tied up in the packers.
    Pretty sad really.

  58. The website that year-in and year-out puts 7 of the top 10 drunkest cities in America in Wisconsin IS NOT a scholarly website that uses professionally accumulated data. It makes for happy internet trolls, bu by an large, the annual stories are fact-supported about as much as one of POTUS’s tweets.

    As for Brett… Thanks for the memories and I’m glad you’ve matured.

  59. It is a crying shame that so many of you can pass judgement on someone else. Until you have walked in his shoes, you never know what he has gone through. Addiction is no joke, like a lot of the idiots in here are making it out to be. Having suffered through addiction, it is not a choice. Mine started from a mis-diagnosis. He got addicted to two LEGAL substances. He was not out there dealing it, or selling it. He was out there entertaining his fans. The same fans that demanded that he play through injuries. They did not hold a gun to his head, but, put so much pressure on him to continue to play a GAME!!! But hey, call him a bad role model for being human!

  60. Good for him.

    I have always held (and still hold) that the hero worship for Favre is undeserved. He is an all-time great QB, but he is not a good guy, and everyone always brushed aside his selfishness and his mistreatment of women because he is so charismatic and was so much fun to watch on the field. Plus he was tough as nails. Those are admirable qualities, but they’re no license to be a bad person (well, they are…but they shouldn’t be).

    But good for Favre for owning and controlling his addiction. I’ll support anyone on that front.

    But since this is a profootball website, I choose to talk about the Green Bay Packers, their history and play.
    And yes, how many wonderful moments I’ve shared with friends and family during Packer games.

    If this was a site called PoliticalTalk, GolfTalk or FamilyTalk, I could fill pages of posts discussing that.
    But Hey, whatever your truth is.
    Delusional as always.

  63. Favre should be commended for bringing this out in the open, he has lived with a lot of pain, some of it self-induced when he signed with the Vikings.
    ======

    BOTH parties should have handled themselves better.

    Favre wanted to move on, the Packers did everything in their power to prevent that…. that was wrong.

    He could have been traded without all the hullabaloo, as the 9ers did with Montana.

  64. “The study also found cities with heavy drinking tend to have better-educated, higher earning and healthier populations than cities with the lowest excessive drinking rates.”

    Tell us something we don’t already know.

    Go Pack Go!

  65. At least Favre is honest I’m sure their were other players that had the same issues but did not open up about it . Addiction happens to a lot of people that are prescribed drugs .

    Please, enlighten me, Billtetley, and point out the statement where I equated the Packers over the worth of my family, friends or general lifestyle?
    Don’t just make grand, sweeping, ill conceived statements and then scurry away like so many of the Barneys are prone to do.
    Prove it.

    I don’t believe I’m so different than most people on here.

    We can all choose to be anything we like on here. I see you have chosen to be a liar.

    You and a few of your packer brothers incessantly post on here, day and night. If your family life is so fulfilling, wouldn’t you be out spending time with them rather than arguing with nameless, faceless strangers?

    You are protesting way to much.

    You will rarely see me posting after 5pm or on weekends. I may not post at all during the day, it just depends on how busy I am. You on the other hand, this is part of your daily routine. it’s sad that your interaction here means so much to you. Hey, if this is your social interaction, more power to you. You should get out more though.
