Redmond O'Neal, son of Farah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal was admitted last April to a drug court program in connection with two drug-related arrests – one involving possession of heroin and methamphetamine and the latter involving possession of methamphetamine...
However, O'Neal, 25, has been in jail since December 29 when he was arrested for an alleged probation violation
As it stands now, Redmond will be released from jail and sent to a residential treatment program, and from there to a clean living house after he finishes the treatment program.
No one knows what demons drive Redmond to continue this destructive pattern of drug use, or if the stint in rehab will be the answer for the troubled 25 yr. old. What has been shown is that continual exposure to a drug free environment is the key to success. Sometimes, simply giving sufficient time to get the drugs out of the system is enough to eliminate the strong addictive effects of the drugs, clearing the mind and body and set new healthy living patterns.
We wish Redmond all the best, but as the judge told Redmond, "It's up to you."
