‘I’m a completely different person now’: Katie Price reveals she has been sober for a year and hasn’t had a drink since leaving rehab
Katie Price has revealed she has been sober since she left rehab facility The Priory last year.
The reality star, 42, checked into the facility in February 2020 to get ‘severe trauma rehabilitation’ which made her turn to alcohol and cocaine.
Katie was coping with the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) she experienced after she was sexually assaulted during a carjacking in South Africa while filming her reality show in 2018, and her mother Amy Price’s diagnosis with incurable lung disease idiophatic pulmonary fibrosis.

Since completing her treatment at The Priory, Katie, who was known for partying, has never felt better and feels as though she’s got her spark back now she is teetotal.
Speaking to Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on Access All Areas on FUBAR Radio, she said: ‘Since I’ve been out of The Priory, I have not drunk nothing.
‘And now I’ve forgotten what it’s like to drink, and that’s not like me because I’m quite sociable and stuff. And then obviously I was into the coke because I was self-medicating.
‘When I look at it all now I’m like, “Oh my God, I’m a completely different person now. What the hell?”

‘I’m actually embarrassed to how I’ve acted and stuff, but you know, that’s part and part of mental health. You can’t help it.’
Katie’s business brain also feels re-invigorated by being sober and she feels as though she is now ‘on fire’ with her ideas.
She added: ‘When I did Loose Women, that was at my worst when mentally I was so not with it really. Struggling, but I still put on a front. And now I am myself again.
‘I’m switched on I’m quick, I’m just all focused with work. People are hating it because I’m so assertive now.
‘And I’m back to how I was, and they don’t know how to handle me, cause they were so used to me for the last couple of years being down and being late for everything. And it’s because I was struggling and I just never told anyone, but now I’m on fire.
