“Mighty Ducks” actor Shaun Weiss says he has checked in to a long-term rehabilitation center after his most recent arrest for public intoxication earlier this month.
“At this time, in an effort to break free from the self destructive patterns of behavior and drug abuse that have landed me at rock bottom, (to be real… BELOW rock bottom. Even rock bottom is like ‘holy s–t, how’d you get all the way down there?’),” the former child actor wrote in a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday. “I have checked in to a well reguarded, long term rehabilitation center. I have surrendered to the reality that without immediate treatment my life is in eminant danger.”
Earlier this month, Weiss, 39, was arrested for allegedly being under the influence of drugs in Oroville, California and released after a few hours.
In the post, Weiss, who played Goldberg in the “Mighty Ducks” movies, attributes his decision to enter rehab to the outpouring of love from fans following his arrest.
“In the midst of my most challenging times your support is giving me the strength I need to embark down the long road to recovery,” he wrote, before adding in a “Mighty Ducks” joke.
The “Heavyweights” actor continued, “In closing, I AM going to recover. I’m determined to return to my old self. My mind is set on health and well being. To all bridges burned; those who I have: lied to, taken advantage of, manipulated for selfish gains, stolen from… then led the search to help you find what I stole… Relax, I’ll buy you a new one. JUST KIDDING! Losing the privalage to share life with you is heavier than the guilt I must carry. I ask not for forgiveness, not for another chance or keys to your OTHER car. However, in knowing the transformation I’m striving for is beyond my own mind and body, I do seek your prayers. If you will.”
He ended the note by thanking people who have been there for him, including his cousins, who he says coordinated his rehab stay, and, perhaps jokingly, “The RN at UCLA Santa Monica for proof reading this post.”
Weiss was also arrested on drug charges in 2017.
