Hunter Biden Opens Up About Struggles With Addiction
The interview also details Biden’s experience trying to get sober, attending various rehab clinics, and entering treatment programs multiple times. When Biden got a job at a Reserve unit at Naval Station Norfolk in 2013, he failed a urine drug test that showed he had done cocaine, and was discharged. In 2014 shortly after, he went to a treatment center in Tijuana, which used
ibogaine (an illegal root-derived medication) and encouraged meditation to help treat his addiction. He also went on a 12-step yoga retreat in Big Sur that same year, and attempted to use yoga to heal.
