Barrymore: 'I'm Not Sober'
DREW BARRYMORE has confessed she's not completely sober after a youth spent battling drug and alcohol issues and a stint in rehab.
The actress claims to have found "balance" in her life, which means she doesn't have to cut out all the things she used to be addicted to.
In a new Parade magazine interview, the Charlie's Angels actress says, "I'm not (sober) and I don't claim to be - quite the opposite. I've tried to find the balance. I hope it's balanced."
Barrymore has always been open about her addictive past - she had her first sip of alcohol when she was nine, began smoking marijuana at the age of 10, and first took cocaine at 12.
According to reports, her mother staged an intervention when Barrymore was a teenager and checked her into the ASAP Family Treatment Center rehab hospital.
The actress quit the facility after 12 days.
