Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx posted a photo with his wife Courtney and their daughter Ruby on Instagram and shared some details about his battle with drug addiction.

As you might remember, Mötley Crüe co-founder and bass guitarist Nikki Sixx struggled with substance abuse for many years. Nikki even had a near-death experience caused by a severe consumption of heroin back in the 1980s. However, after being a long time heroin addict, Sixx achieved to win his battle against addiction. He recently celebrated the 19th anniversary of his sobriety.

The iconic musician has been participating in various projects to help people who have been struggling with alcohol or drug addiction just like he did. Nikki and his band Sixx: A.M collaborated with fellow rock musicians to record a song to support the fight against substance abuse.

Recently, the Sixx family joined a photoshoot for Jackson Hole News & Guide at their house in Wyoming. The article about Nikki’s battle with addiction revealed some details about his recovery process. He mentioned it was not an easy process, particularly for young kids. Sixx also emphasized the importance of having someone to support the addict during the recovery.

Here’s what Nikki Sixx stated about the recovery process:

“It’s not easy for young kids to have people they can trust and look up to, especially when they’ve had the rug pulled out from underneath them. If somebody doesn’t give them a hand and pull them out of the hole, sometimes they just don’t know how to get out, bro.”

Here’s a part of the article shared by Nikki Sixx on Instagram:

“Nikki Sixx, with his wife Courtney and their daughter Ruby, picked up their Los Angeles roots and moved to Jackson earlier this year. The Motley Crue bassist hopes to be a leading voice for addiction recovery in his new hometown.⁠

Sixx spoke with the News&Guide in September, National Recovery Month. His sobriety has made him an advocate for recovery. He’s spoken on Capitol Hill and with international news outlets about addiction and recovery, and penned high-profile op-eds on the same topic, including one in the Los Angeles Times in which he lamented the country’s response to the opioid crisis.⁠

Sarah Cavallaro, executive director of Teton Youth and Family Services, which serves teens struggling with addiction, invited the collaboration, and could see Sixx serving as a ‘role model.’
