After a lengthy history of drug usage and legal problems, Edward Furlong recently stated that he has been clean for four years. When asked about his addiction to a news source, he said that it began when he was young and there weren’t many people seeking him at the time. Furlong stated he started with pot, beer, and shrooms before being exposed to cocaine and heroin in his twenties. He went on to say that he was high, drinking and partying, and that he suddenly felt like he was among people and that he fit in somehow.

After having his first child with Rachael Bella in 2006, the actor said that he quit using heroin. However, two years later, Bella filed for divorce, and Furlong was accused of introducing his kid to cocaine. Furlong was finally served with a restraining order by Bella. His ex-wife, Monica Keena, accused him of domestic abuse in 2012, and he was sentenced to 180 days in jail.
