Matthew says it's now hard for him to look at photos of himself from that era.

"I honestly recoil," Matthew admits. "It's scary to look at that. I was a sick guy."

The Whole Nine Yards star underwent a 28-day treatment program back in 1997 for Vicodin, and then he entered rehab in 2001 for additcion to Vicodin and methadone, along with amphetamines and alcohol.

"If you're thrown from treatment to the outside world, sometimes it's too bumpy," he says of his first attempt at recovery.

It's great that Matthew is so open about his struggles. Don't worry, Matt we'll always be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
