News broke yesterday that country music star Trace Adkins entered alcohol rehab after a reported altercation with an impersonator on the Country Cruising cruise. According to reports, Adkins was 12-years sober.

Glenn has been open about his own struggles with alcoholism, and TheBlaze’s Laurie Dhue is seven years sober and very active in the recovery community. She offered her unique perspective on the issue on Thursday’s Wilkow!

“Relapse is not a failure. It’s a reset,” Laurie explained. “Relapse is often a part of recovery… He had a slip. Doesn’t mean he’s a failure. Doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy. It means he’s human. Addicts aren’t ‘bad’ people trying to get ‘good’… He is a sick person who is now trying to get well again.”
