Out and proud Arrow actor, Colton Haynes, just dropped some serious news in an interview with Attitude Magazine this week, revealing that he's been struggling with drug and alcohol abuse.

Hayne has made many headlines over the last 2 years regarding his marriage and subsequent divorce to celebrity florist, Jeff Leatham, as well as his mother's passing not too long after the wedding bells rang.

For the first time, after many months of radio silence, Haynes is speaking out about his destructive use of drugs and alcohol.

"In 10 years, there were maybe 25 days I didn't drink," states Haynes. "I remember when I started, it was a couple glasses of wine, and it regressed into really dark times."

"I used to blame it on my anxiety or depression issues, but really the root of all my problems was the alcohol and drugs."

Colton continued to say that his relationship with substances, intensified following his very public coming out to the media in 2016.

"I came out and, in a way, my downward spiral started. I felt extremely free but at the same time the amount of attention I was getting was making me spin out of control.

Haynes has since entered a four-month treatment program and is currently going in his six month of sobriety.

We're with you Colton!
