I've knew a guy years ago who had a SERIOUS problem with the juice. He never tried to get himself clean. Lord knows his friends tried to get him to act. He didn't, and didn't want to. He's dead. Left a wife and two kids.
Here's hoping Eddie can conquer his demons. He's taken the right first step. But you never fully recover. It's not like one day "you're fixed." Recovery is a day to day thing that never ends. It takes a tremendous MENTAL effort to stay clean, and incredible support from the people around you.
