Is Jodie Sweetin in drug rehab? The former Full House star is currently living at a drug treatment facility as her divorce to Morty Coyle heats up. Sweetin was a daily meth user nearly a decade ago and entered drug rehab in 2005. Now reportedly clean and sober since December 2008, the Twitter star is denying being in drug rehab and claims that Coyle started the rumors to help his cause in divorce proceedings.
Sweetin denied the rehab reports to TMZ, saying that she is not in treatment or using drugs. The former Full House star slammed the reports as "such bull*hit" and made it clear that she is "absolutely not in rehab." Sweetin also addressed her impending divorce proceedings and said that she is no longer requesting sole custody of her two-year-old daughter, instead, she is asking for joint custody with Coyle because she wants her child "to have both of her parents in her life." However, she hinted at Coyle starting the drug rehab rumors, saying: "You never know what someone is like until you break up."
The Full House star did acknowledge that she is currently living at a rehab facility. Sweetin has essentially abandoned her acting career these days, and is currently working as a clinical logistics coordinator at an L.A. rehab center. The center has allowed her to live in a studio apartment on the premises while she figures out her living situation after moving out of her home with Coyle. "They have been really generous in helping me with a place to stay as Morty wanted me out by the end of the month," Sweetin revealed. "The owners of the facility said I could stay here as I got things figured out."
The former Full House actress, who played Stephanie Tanner on the celebrated sitcom, was a daily meth user in 2004. Sweetin's husband at the time, a Los Angeles police officer, had no idea about her addiction and ultimately divorced her when it was revealed. Tabloids reported a three-day bender and an intervention staged by her Full House castmates.
"There is a certain sense of loss when a series ends," Sweetin said about the show that made her famous. "It is kind of hard to figure out who you are when you've lost your job at age 13, when that was basically how you identified yourself."
Since getting clean and sober in 2008, Sweetin's TV career has more or less fizzled. She hosted the short-lived music show Pants-Off Dance-Off in 2007, and acted in a handful of straight-to-DVD and TV films.
