Osbourne tried to commit suicide by overdosing on prescription pills, including OxyContin and Valium. It wasn’t until the spring of 2003 that he decided his depression was too much to bear – and needed professional help.

“I disappeared for the long weekend,” Jack explains. “When I came back, I knew I needed help. I was like, ‘Okay, I will do this.’”
