Dave Roelvink struggled with alcohol and drug addiction: ‘Have hurt people’ | show

Dave Roelvink struggled with a drink and drug addiction until two years ago. The reality star reveals this in a video on Instagram today. “I’ve been very far from myself and hurt people around me.” Roelvink sought professional help and is now taking a new step: he will help other addicts in collaboration with Najib Amhali.

,,That I’ve had a very wild period in my life, I don’t surprise anyone with that. Only what hardly anyone knows is that I have struggled for a very long time with a drink and drug addiction”, Roelvink starts his video today. The son of singer Dries Roelvink confesses that he was ‘far from himself’ and ‘hurt a lot of people’ at the time.

Two years ago, Roelvink received a wake-up call: something had to change. He decided to be admitted to a rehab clinic. “And luckily with success,” says Roelvink, who does not want to delve too deeply into the cause of his addiction. “Let me say that it was just a lot for me to be known at a young age, that everyone had an opinion about you at once. I couldn’t deal with my feelings and emotions very well and in the drink and drugs I just found my anesthetic.”

Now that Roelvink is strong again, he announces that he made the choice a year ago to want to help other people with their addiction. He does this together with, among others, Najib Amhali, who previously informed this site that he lacked a ‘personal approach’ in rehab and therefore founded Recovery Mental Healthcare.

,,I can be a good son again, father, a dear friend to my girl. And I also feel very happy. Two years ago I did not hope that I would feel the way I do now,” says Roelvink proudly, who emphasizes once again that addiction is a huge problem in the Netherlands.

“This is also a call to young people, the elderly, people who see this message: give yourself a chance to recover. This is possible with us, but anyway: seek help. That is the best gift you can give yourself.”
