If you were a kid in the 1990s, you might know Orlando Brown from the popular Disney TV show “That’s So Raven” or the movie “Max Keeble’s Big Move.” Or maybe you know Brown from his work as a Christian rap artist in the past few years.
Unfortunately, though, Orlando Brown is better known today for his troubled first appearances in the news, where he was arrested for drug possession, domestic violence, and illegal drug use. Orlando Brown has had a long history of drug abuse, but he is now on the right track to getting better.
Orlando Brown’s journey to get better began in 2020. Orlando Brown finished a recovery program at the end of last year and has already done a lot of great things in his new life. The star is married, has a child, makes music, and lives a clean life.
But while Orlando Brown’s problems with drugs and mental health got a lot of attention in the news, his journey to recovery hasn’t gotten the same amount of attention. This article shows how Orlando Brown went from being addicted to drugs to getting clean.
Addiction is a disease that can happen to anyone, no matter where they come from or what they do for a living. At the same time, it is possible to get better, as Brown’s story shows.
The Story Of Orlando Brown’s Drug Use And Mental Health
Orlando Brown has been in the news for things that don’t seem to be good. In 2016, he was arrested for assaulting a family member, having methamphetamine with the intent to sell it, and having illegal items in jail. Brown didn’t show up to court when he was supposed to.
He has also been charged with driving under the influence, being drunk in public, and disturbing the peace. His repeated arrests show that he has a big problem with drug abuse and addiction and that he needs help.
In 2018, Orlando Brown went to see Dr. Phil because a friend had asked for his help. Solomon Barron, a friend of Brown’s, called Dr. Phil when he saw that Brown was “obviously crazy.” From the interview, it’s clear that Brown was having trouble with his mental health and thinking confusingly.
During his talk with Dr. Phil, he also said that he drank a lot and used marijuana to feel better, but that he had been sober for four years at the time. Dr. Phil offered to help Brown get treatment, but Brown turned him down.
But after many years, Orlando Brown finally got the help he needed and deserved. In September 2020, a video of Brown appeared to show him giving a speech at a Christian church. This church was Rise Church in Texas.
Brown had signed up for a six-month recovery program for men who have problems with drugs, alcohol, depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. He finished the program in November of last year.
Orlando Brown’s story about how he got better didn’t go viral until this month, around October 7, 2021. On October 7, there were a lot of videos and pictures of Brown and his family at church. Fans were proud of him for being strong, working hard, and doing well so far in his recovery.
Orlando Brown’s Recovering From Addiction
Brown has gotten married and had a child since he started the road to recovery. He has also been making music, and a lot of it is about his journey to get better. Brown raps in his song “The Lord Is My Shepherd” about how he gave his life to God after seeing a lot of bad things in the news and on social media and deciding to follow God.
Brown’s viral video was a testimonial for the rising Church and its recovery program. He says, “I had a great time. These brothers liked me just the way I was. Church is beautiful. All of the leaders are geniuses and men of God. He says in another video that he is “on the road to recovery.”
Getting better is a journey. Addiction, especially when it’s mixed up with other mental health problems, is a complicated brain disorder that takes time and hard work to overcome. It’s not easy, but it is possible to get over an addiction.
People have hope when they hear stories like Orlando Brown’s. Orlando Brown is still working on his recovery, but he is using his platform to talk to other people about having faith and finding a purpose in life that doesn’t involve drugs or alcohol.

Fans keep praising Brown for his recovery, hoping to spread his story and use it as an example of how to get over an addiction. Even though drug abuse, mental health, and drug rehab all have bad reputations, we should never avoid talking about them. Fans have taken it upon themselves to keep praising Brown’s journey on social media to get other people to get help, too. Some of the tweets were:
(That’s So Raven) shout out to Orlando Brown. He got clean from drugs, found God, and now has a beautiful family. I’d like to see it. I’m proud of Orlando Brown, even if no one else does. He beat his addiction and made a big change in his life.
Orlando Brown not only got clean from drugs, but he also gave his life to Jesus. WHY ISN’T THIS BEING TALKED ABOUT? I heard Orlando Brown stopped using drugs. I want us to talk about it as loudly as we did when we made fun of him for being high as hell. Man, you’re lucky to have your life back.
Soooo proud of Orlando Brown for beating …excuse me, CHOOSING to beat his addiction daily.
What an awesome black man! Beautiful family too. He looks great❤️ pic.twitter.com/YuqM9ukoDX
