Ministry's Al Jourgensen Goes To Rehab
"Dear Ministry Fans Worldwide... Your Uncle Al has successfully entered rehab for alcohol addiction. We are so proud of him for his courage in this and Al would like to thank all of you for your kindness love & support you've shown since making his decision to get help!"
Jourgensen entering rehab did not come as a surprise to fans that follow Ministry on Facebook. On January 19th, the official Ministry Facebook page told fans, "UPDATE FROM 13th Planet : Dear Ministry Fans ! Uncle Al has made the decision to go to rehab to address his alcohol issues. We were really trying to keep this a private family affair and not a media frenzy; however, your crazy Uncle Al posted about it yesterday on his FB page, so now it's out.
"Of course we always want to let Ministry fans be the first to know about things, but this got away from us. We hope that you will join us and the entire 13th Planet family in wishing Al the very best and giving him your full support in his journey towards sobriety. We are all very, very proud of him." See the Ministry Facebook page for any updates.
