Actor Performs Surprise Intervention for Troubled 22-Year-Old

For more than 18 years, actor Daniel Baldwin has battled an addiction
to smoking cocaine. He has been in and out of rehab nine times, and in
January, he joined the reality TV show "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew,"
planning to serve as a mentor to the other participants. But during the
fourth episode, Baldwin left the show, saying it was "no longer
conducive to my sobriety. Period."

offering support and some asking for help.

son, Eamon, went from honor roll student and star athlete to a binge
drinking, emotional, financial burden on his parents and loving younger
brother and sister.
