Jason Wahler is the latest celeb to open up about his battle with substance abuse and addiction in the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death.
On Thursday, the former The Hills star, 27, wrote a personal essay for The Huffington Post, in which he explained how he deftly kept his addiction a secret from his friends.
"A few years ago, I would host parties at my house in L.A. where there would be 50-100 people raging out of control. While everyone thought I was enjoying the party as much as they were, little did they know I was secretly going into the master bathroom and snorting as much coke and drinking as much alcohol as I could," Wahler reveals, adding that he became quite adept at keeping secrets.

He's been clean one year and says he's a changed man. Now, The Hills and Laguna Beach alum Jason Wahler – who had a string of drunk driving arrests and stints in rehab – is making strides with his personal life as well.
"I wanted to make amends with Lauren [Conrad]," he says of his ex-girlfriend. "She was a big part of my life and there's stuff that happened in the past with my drunken ways that I needed to address."
Wahler, 24, currently works in Costa Mesa, Calif., at National Therapeutic Services as a mentor and sober companion. "It feels good to give back," says Wahler, who contacted Conrad recently after feeling more comfortable in his recovery.

He's done it again.

Familiar words for those who remember his 30-day sentence for getting in a drunken brawl in 2007 in a Seattle hotel – or that incident in 2006, when he was sentenced to two months in jail for battery after punching a tow-truck driver and city employee while shouting ethnic slurs and boasting a blood-alcohol level of .22 percent.
