C.C. Sabathia Opens Up About His Recovery

“If it was my knee or it was anything else, then people wouldn’t have a problem with it. But, you know, it being alcoholism, it’s tough for people to swallow, but it’s the same thing.”

On October 4th C.C. Sabathia left the team for treatment ahead of its loss to Houston in the one-game American League wild-card playoff and went public with his problem. Most addicts never feel the need to go to rehab. Most addicts are completely oblivious to their problem due to their denial. This makes Sebathia’s journey to treatment so important for people to see.

So, thank you. We are grateful that you attended a 28 day program very publicly and made it a very public declaration. We (the Recovery Unplugged Staff) are thankful that you have chosen to use your status to bring this issue to the public’s attention. We have always been a fan of you on the field but today we are in awe of you off the field.

We have a Yankee mega fan in the office here is what she had to say about it.

Christine – This could be anyone. This time is CC. What a good lesson for anyone struggling to make the decision. The time is now. It takes an enormous amount of courage to admit to an addiction and to want to ask for help. Follow his example: Get help!!
