Mighty Ducks Shaun Weiss marks milestone in drug recovery as case is dismissed after 18 months sober from meth addiction

THE Mighty Ducks actor Shaun Weiss marked a major milestone in his drug recovery.

The child star’s legal case was dismissed after he reached 18 months of sobriety from his meth addiction.



Back in January 2020, the 42-year-old actor was caught breaking into a man's garage while high on meth.

TMZ reported on Thursday that the actor successfully completed the program, while his burglary case dismissed as a result.

According to Yahoo, the Facebook page for California's Yuba County shared a photo of Shaun graduating from drug court.

Shaun appeared healthy as he posed with a judge while holding up his certificate.

The post read: “Shaun Weiss entered into the Yuba County Drug Court program on March 3, 2020. Shaun demonstrated perseverance during his recovery complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. He had to move treatment and transitional living programs on several occasions,.

"He underwent dental reconstructive surgery, and had a close family member suffer a serious accident during his treatment. Shaun regained employment and has been traveling across the country making guest appearances and signing autographs. He received tremendous support from friends and fans of the character, Goldberg, he played in the 1992 hit The Mighty Ducks."

MOVING ON FROM HIS TROUBLED PAST
