Speaking to Dave Franco for Interview Magazine about his past addiction, Colson Baker, better known as Machine Gun Kelly, stated he’s seeking therapy for drug abuse.

Since he is in the beginning stages of therapy, he does feel impatient at times, but he stays motivated and committed to sustaining his sobriety. The rapper hasn’t been shy about his past substance abuse and mental health struggles, which he often mentions in his music. Machine Gun Kelly admitted to being addicted to Adderall and was not only taking it orally, but snorting it as well.

Machine Gun Kelly’s Drug Abuse Recovery

  Though he is in the early phases of his therapy for drug abuse, he says, “the tools that I’ve been given to start with seem helpful.” He went on to say, “The willingness to finally be happy with my own self has invited a much more vibrant energy around [the people around me] than before.”
