These issues intensified after his mother passed and after he was drafted to the army in 1957.

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977. He was suffering from many health ailments at the time and is said to have passed from a heart attack made worse by his long history with substance abuse.

While it is unknown whether Elvis Presley ever checked into a rehabilitation centre, he was hospitalized several times for health complications tied to his frequent drug use.

Mark Wahlberg
Actor

By the time Mark turned 13, he had developed a serious drug problem. Addicted to cocaine among other illicit substances, he quickly dropped out of school and joined a gang. Driven in large part by his drug dependency, he began getting into trouble with the law. He had more than 20 run-ins with police during his tumultuous teenage years. After withdrawing from cocaine in a prison rehabilitation centre, he reentered the music business as the front man for the hip-hop oriented group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. His debut album became an outstanding success.

Mark Wahlberg would go on to even greater achievements as a Hollywood actor. The final steps in Mark Wahlberg’s journey to sobriety were taken only recently. Spurred on by his love of his family, Wahlberg officially quit using tobacco, marijuana and alcohol at age of 40.
