Reformed party girl Samaire Armstrong -- who entered outpatient treatment for three months last October for "personal issues" -- says you have to be "willing" to get help.
"What made me willing was hitting a bottom," the actress, 27, told Usmagazine.com at the Los Angeles premiere of Bra Boys Monday.
"It can be a spiritual bottom, it can be a financial bottom," she added. "It can be a combination of all of those."
She told Us she had gone to treatment before and "was on the right path, then I got off."
So she turned to her "wonderful family and people around me who helped me overcome all of this," she said. "People who loved me showed me what was at stake. Then I put myself fully into it. I stayed there for three months and did the work."
