Comedian Artie Lange seems ready for a change.
Now 51 years old, his health fading, Lange appears ready to commit to sobriety. And it begins with a treatment program.
“I’m about to go into drug treatment and commit to a full rehab, in-patient,” he said in a recent interview on the Steve Trevelise Show. “I don’t know. I’m a very humble guy at this point. And I think I’m ready to go and do what I gotta do. It’s been long enough.”
“I’m about to take a big step to help myself, to save my life. I’m sure you will hear about it. I feel like I’m not done. I have another run of laughing with you all. I want to thank you fans the way you thank me. You have saved my life. You are special to me. Wish me luck.”
