Artie Lange is home from rehab and more than seven months sober


Artie Lange has returned home from rehab.

“Great to be home!” the comedian, 51, posted Tuesday on Twitter. “7 months 14 days sober but one day at a time. Lots of new stories to tell. Will announce some new tour dates on Friday. Thanks for the support. Love you all.”

The New Jersey-born comic — and longtime contributor to “The Howard Stern Show” — also shared a photo of himself in the Twitter post.

Lange entered rehab earlier this year after twice testing positive for cocaine.

The comedian’s struggles with substance use has been well-documented. In January, a rep from Lange’s team wrote in a since-deleted tweet on the comedian’s page that he was “undergoing a long term treatment program” and that he “loves and respects his fans.”
