Timbaland's Addiction

Music Producer Timbaland Almost Destroys His Career Through An Addiction

The Epidemic of Addiction and What We Can Do About It

Legendary producer Timberland has opened up about his struggles with addiction. In a recent interview he reveals he suffered a near-death overdose. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the artist, born Timothy Mosey, revealed that he began taking OxyContin in his 30s. The addiction began innocently. He began using OxyContin to help with nerve issues that came from a gunshot wound he got as a teenager.  As his usage became rampant, his chart success declined, and his marriage collapsed. The downward spiral lead him to struggle with a cycle of depression and further addiction. Timberland said he survived a near-death overdose while sleeping three years ago, recalling that "there was a light...I woke up trying to catch my breath, like I was underwater. But through that whole thing I saw life – I saw where I would be if I don't change, and where I could be if I did." After weaning himself off the medication and experiencing withdrawal, he "thought about Michael Jackson... I didn't want to be old and taking these pills."
