Lisa-Marie's Drug Binge Drove Her To Scientology

Singer LISA-MARIE PRESLEY had to seek help from the CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY for the first time after going on a 72-hour drink and drugs binge.

The daughter of rock'n'roll icon ELVIS is now a committed member of the church, which also boasts stars JOHN TRAVOLTA and TOM CRUISE as devotees.

She explains, "I was on a 72-hour bender. Cocaine, sedatives, pot and drinking - all at the same time. I never got my hands on any heroin, but it's not as if I wouldn't have taken it. I just couldn't be sober. I don't know how I lived through it.

"I woke up one day with a bunch of people on the floor and the coke dealer was in the room. I just said, 'Everybody get the f*** out. That's it. I'm done.'

"I drove myself to the Church of Scientology and said, 'Somebody f***ing help me right now'. They jumped in, not in a rehab way. It wasn't like that.

"Now I've figured out who I am. I have an understanding of sanity and insanity."
