Alcohol Was Sambora's Nemesis

Richie Sambora told Matt Lauer on the Today show that he entered a treatment facility to "detox" from alcohol:

"I did detox," the Bon Jovi rocker, 47, told Matt Lauer Tuesday morning after his band performed live on the Today show.

"I didn't check into rehab," he clarified. "Instead of me heading into a place – I was just drinking too much and I needed to get my life together. I'm still in therapy and stuff like that, but it's good. I'm great. I feel fine."

It hasn't been an easy year for Sambora. His divorce from actress Heather Locklear was finalized in April and his father died of lung cancer and, of course, his relationship with actress Denise Richards ended as well.

Good on ya Richie for getting help early!
