It is no secret that former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist and beloved Jane’s Addiction member Dave Navarro has dealt with drug addictions all his life. In the late 1990s when he kicked an addiction to cocaine and heroin. He attributed his drug use as a means of escape from the trauma of his mother’s death. Eventually, he overcame the addiction and he is a better man for it all. He had revealed that he has not abused drugs for 15 years and has been sober for the past four years.

Following the tragic murder of his mother, Navarro released a documentary titled ‘Mourning Son’ in 2015. In the documentary, the guitarist detailed his mother’s murder, his fall into drug addiction and explained the pain he had to endure in the following years since his mother’s death.

In an interview by Appetite For Distortion, Dave Navarro talked about the struggles he had after his mother’s death. He stated that he suffered from depression and PTSD his whole life, and he was lucky to join Jane’s Addiction as the band helped him to set goals for himself for the future. However, Navarro then admitted no external thing can fix a deep-rooted trauma like his.
