‘Friends’ star Matthew Perry used his sobriety journey to help others battle addiction

Matthew Perry wanted a legacy for helping others who battled addiction and sobriety challenges.

Perry died on Oct. 28 after an apparent drowning in a hot tub, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News Digital. He was 54. No drugs were reportedly found on the scene and no foul play is suspected.

The “Friends” star has been candid through the years about his challenging journey with sobriety and was planning to establish a foundation to help other addicts before his death, according to People magazine.

Perry previously founded Perry House, a men’s sober living facility in Malibu, California, which he ran for two years before closing the business to find an easier access location to serve more members of the community.
