Author Christopher Kennedy Lawford has put together a collection of moving stories told by celebrities who spent time in rehab facilities.

In "Moments of Clarity," he talks with stars including Alec Baldwin, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lou Gossett Jr, and the legendary Judy Collins.

"I had been drinking around the clock for four years. My instrument - the voice that had brought me success and saved my sanity - was coming apart," Judy Collins said after celebrating 13 years of sobriety.

Lou Gossett Jr. was in South Africa when he had his wake up call that he had caused his own pain. Inspired by Mandela's life, he thought "What the hell am I doing? I did worse to myself than any person, white or black, did to me."

Alec Baldwin, who battled not only an addiction, but an ugly divorce/custody battle spoke openly about how the spiritual aspect of AA worked for him. It's refreshing to see that kind of honesty in Hollywood and we hope it does some good for others.
