    Default 'Full House' sweetheart Jodie Sweetin talks about meth addiction

    Feb. 1, 2006 - As Stephanie Tanner on the 1990s hit sitcom "Full House," child actress Jodie Sweetin portrayed a young, innocent girl who lived in a happy, healthy supportive home.

    "Growing up when I was on the series, I never really watched, even from this day, it's surreal to watch myself on television," said Sweetin. "Growing up in the business you have to grow up very fast -- you do have a different type of childhood, that has its benefits and it has its drawbacks."

    When the show ended in 1995, she said she wanted to be a normal kid. She went to high school and college and by age 20 was married to a Los Angeles police officer -- TV older sister Candice Cameron was in the wedding party.

    But two years ago, she found herself dangerously addicted to one of the most debilitating drugs, methamphetamine. She said she was unemployed and bored and began simply by experimenting. Soon, she was using meth everyday.

    The tabloid press reported a three-day bender as well as an intervention staged by her "Full House" castmates -- including the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget.

    Sweetin, 24, never went as far as to blame her life as a child star for her addiction, but said that it was difficult to discover who she truly was after the show ended.

    "There is a certain sense of loss when a series ends," she said. "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."

    Sweetin said she checked herself in to the Promises drug rehab facility where she went underwent six weeks of intense treatment. She realized that she "was living a total double life," she said. "I was married to a police officer -- we are going through a divorce right now -- he had no idea."

    Sweetin has been clean and sober since March of last year and now wants to get back into acting.

    "I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me," she said. "I really hope this isn't the last people hear of me. In fact, I would like to make this a footnote in my career, not the end."

    Did anyone else watch that this morning? I had the distinct impression that this was a comeback ploy. I've seen enough people on meth to know that you don't take it for any period of time and come out unscathed. Your physical changes happen VERY quickly. She looked far too good and seemed far too unemotional about it all. I could be wrong but I'm calling a scam on this one.

    Mark-Kate stages your intervention? MK the coke addict and
    all-around weirdo? That's serious.

    ^^ I totally agree with you. Any cop worth their salt will know signs of Meth use (unless you are in some area that Meth hasn't infiltrated). Like I said though, her face is flawless. She looks stunning, which is why I don't think she ever did meth.

    I know several former meth users who have not had permanent damage done to their faces. The need to pick at your skin does not always manifest. When they are that young they heal faster too. She also has access to better make up tricks than many other recovering addicts.

    I never thought of this but I can see it being a ploy to kickstart a comeback. Cover of People, here she comes.

    MK, Ashley and John Stamos. Three of the biggest coke heads staged an intervention....nice. They were probably afraid she would hog all the drugs.

    Did she have plastic surgery? I seem to remember her in the last year or so of that show, and she had an enormous almost freaky looking jaw. It seems to be gone now.
