Eminem has been candid about his recovery over the years. Last year, he acknowledged his decade of sobriety through another Instagram post. He also detailed his struggle with substance abuse in his song lyrics and through media interviews. In 2015, he told Men's Journal he overdosed on pills in 2007, and found exercise to be a substitute for his addiction.
"When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober," he said.
