MusiCares is proud to host a discussion on the unique challenges facing celebrities and others who make their living in the public eye. From the demands of always having to be “on” to the ever present temptations of drugs, sex and alcohol it’s not surprising that many celebrities struggles with substance abuse and addiction. This talk will explore some of these issues along with firsthand experiences of the personal difficulties and successes encountered on the path to recovery.

Hyper, irreverent, and just downright fabulous, ANT is a standup comic, writer and host who boasts many achievements in his career as a performer. He has been a regular guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Tyra Banks show. He is the only comedian to appear on all five seasons of NBC’s hit series Last Comic Standing. He is also host of VH1′s  Celebrity Fit Club and in the LOGO series, “U.S. of ANT.”  His hit stand-up DVD, “ANT: America’s Ready” and comedy CD “Follow my ass!” have sold tens of thousands of copies nationwide and ANT’s daily video blog, “The ANT Colony,” has taken the web by storm.

As a licensed psychotherapist and an executive coach to the entertainment industry in private practice in California for over 17 years Kathryn Mastrogiovanni is widely known for working with notable individuals in the music and film industry addressing the unique set of challenges within this culture.  She is an expert in the treatment of drug, alcohol, sex and love addictive disorders, codependency, mood and personality disorders, and trauma treating individuals, couples, families, and groups.  Currently, she is writing a book with a behind-the-scenes look inside the mental health field and recovery treatment centers, including candid celebrity interviews about their personal journey with addictions.

Presented with support from RBC Capital Markets.
