AJ McLean Talks Getting Aaron Carter Into Rehab Before His Death
AJ McLean, a member of the Backstreet Boys, recently opened up about his efforts to help fellow pop star Aaron Carter get into rehab before his untimely death.
In an interview with People, McLean revealed that he had been in contact with Carter's family and had urged them to get him the help he needed.
Carter had a long history of substance abuse and mental health issues, which had been widely reported in the media.
McLean had been concerned about Carter's well-being and had reached out to his family to offer his support.
He had also spoken publicly about his own struggles with addiction and had encouraged others to seek help.
"I knew he was struggling, and I knew he needed help," McLean said. "But it was hard to get through to his family."
It can be difficult to confront these problems, but reaching out for support can make all the difference.
In 2017, Carter was arrested on suspicion of DUI and possession of marijuana. He had also been open about his struggles with prescription drug abuse and had been hospitalized multiple times for his mental health.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction or mental health issues, there are resources available to help.
