Creed frontman Scott Stapp recently revealed he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. In recent months, Stapp made headlines for his alcohol and drug addiction, and erratic behavior. "In my delusional thinking, I thought my family was involved in ISIS, and that millions of dollars had been taken from me to support terrorism," he tells People Magazine. "All of it was nonsense. I was out of my mind."
While in an intensive program in a dual diagnostic facility, Stapp was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. "It was hard to process," he says. "There's a stigma associated with it. But Jaclyn [Stapp's wife] kept telling me, 'Embrace it. We love you.' It became a big sign of relief, because finally, we had an answer."
Now in intensive therapy, Stapp takes medication for his disorder and is also involved in a 12-step program. "Nothing is more important than my sobriety," he tells People Magazine.
Academy Award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones first became known to movie audiences in the 1998 film The Mask of Zorro. In 2000, she married actor Michael Douglas. The mother of two revealed in April 2011 that she had sought treatment for bipolar II disorder, which is characterized by episodes of hypomania (less severe highs and irritability) alternating with depression.
"After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay," her publicist announced in a statement.
