High School Musical star Zac Efron has twice entered rehab for an alleged cocaine addiction, the Daily Mail reported September 19th. The article, “Zac Efron entered rehab TWICE for 'cocaine addiction after suffering relapse on set of new movie Neighbours’,” noted that Efron first underwent several weeks' worth of treatment as he stayed at a private residence back in March, but is said to have suffered a relapse when he started shooting Seth Rogen's new movie Neighbours in April. However, since seeking outpatient treatment for his addiction the second time, Efron has been drug-free ever since. The Daily Mail quoted an anonymous source, who said, ‘He's healthy, happy and not drinking. He's taking time to focus on working.’ (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the physical and emotional effects of drug and alcohol addiction. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “Most of us were taught in school health classes that the effects of drugs and alcohol can be emotional as well as physical and can have a big impact on the people who surround us as well as on our individual bodies. While this is certainly true, what most people don’t understand – until they are in the throes of addiction – is just how devastating the physical and emotional affects of drug and alcohol addiction can be.” (

Yourwellness Magazine outlined the physical effects of drug and alcohol addiction, including bloody noses, coughing for no reason, lack of coordination, unexplainable drowsiness, irregular pupil size, eyes moving back and forth rapidly and unable to focus on anything, bloodshot or red eyes, smells on clothing, physical marks on the skin (track marks, rashes, etc), inability to sit still and hair loss. Yourwellness Magazine also explained the symptoms of the emotional side of addiction, such as irritability, anxiety, inability to concentrate, anger, stress from strained relationships and feelings of loneliness, ostracism, abandonment and fear.
