  • Eminem: He took methadone after having knee surgery, then was hooked on painkillers for 7 years, nearly dying of an overdose before getting clean.
  • Naomi Campbell: Tthe supermodel’s penchant for fighting is no secret; in 1997, she OD’d on barbiturates after a spat with her Spanish flamenco dancer boyfriend.
  • Charlie Sheen: A cocaine overdose landed the troubled actor in the hospital in 1998.
  • Courtney Love: Overdosed in 2003, 40 minutes after being released from jail for smashing a friend’s windows.
