“She says, ‘We know you’re drinking’,” recalls Perry, adding,
“Imagine how scary a moment that was.”

At the worst point of his addiction, Perry admits that he was taking “55 Vicodin a day”, along with “Methadone, Xanax, a full quart of vodka a day.” 

“At the time I should have been the toast of the town,” he says. “I was in a dark room meeting nothing but drug dealers and completely alone.”

The comedian also reveals how Aniston supported him throughout during his recovery process.
