Justin Bieber opened up about his substance abuse, mental health, and recovery process on his new YouTube documentary series “Seasons.” During the most recent episode of the series, the singer opened up about how he manages his anxiety and substance abuse recovery through unconventional methods. Bieber said sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber and getting weekly IV infusions of NAD+ helps manage his symptoms, but the treatments don’t come cheap. According to Dr. Mark Calarco, while some patients have reported feeling better after both treatments, there are no clinical studies that prove either are effective in treating Bieber’s set of conditions.

In his new YouTube documentary series “Seasons,” Justin Bieber opened up about how his childhood anxiety spurred his “dark period” in his late teens and early 20s when he was addicted to weed, lean (a liquid opioid), and pills. Since getting sober, he has been diagnosed with anxiety, chronic mono, and Lyme disease, all of which can cause lethargy, anxiety, and heart palpitations. “I think when you take somebody very young and they start to get horrible, crazy, crippling anxiety and it goes undiagnosed and you don’t know what it is that you’re feeling, you start to self-medicate because it makes you feel better,” Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), Bieber’s wife, said.
