LATEST: Troubled actress TATUM O'NEAL is seeking treatment for alcohol addiction just days after she was arrested in an apparent drugs raid.
The former child star - who chronicled her recovery from a heroin addiction in her 2004 book A Paper Life - was arrested by police on Sunday (01Jun08) night, after she was spotted by a narcotics team exchanging money with a man for cocaine three blocks from her New York home.
The 44-year-old was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanour offence.
And O'Neal has now enrolled at a local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) therapy group in a bid to help kick her addictions.
She was photographed on her way to a session on Tuesday (03Jun08), telling the New York Daily News, "I'm doing very well. I'm going to an AA meeting."
Referring to the weekend's troubles she adds, "The whole thing is regrettable. What's good in what I did?"
