Sinéad O'Connor is currently staying in a sober living facility after quietly seeking treatment for marijuana addiction, according to multiple media reports.

In a Facebook post, the Irish singer said she's committed to kicking her dependency after being a "weed head" for three decades. On October 23, she wrote: ''I was in rehab by the way. For thirty years of being a weed head. Can proudly state I now have clean [urine] and will be in a sober living environment for the next year.”

She went on to describe the sober living arrangement as “more like a home environment. Only it’s complete with support system. Which is a first for me. Proud of self. Wasn't easy. 0-18 years in Ireland and then 34 years in music business and the s**t that's gone on for the last year.... it's a miracle I wasn't on every drug in sundry.”

The 49-year-old singer has been struggling with health problems for some time and had a hysterectomy last year. In another Facebook post, O’Connor revealed she has undergone hormone replacement therapy but was left in agony after her liver was accidentally "cut" during the procedure.

On a 2007 broadcast of The Oprah Winfrey Show, O'Connor disclosed that she had attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday on December 8th, 1999.

Hopefully, Sinéad O'Connor’s recovery will include efforts to address her co-occurring conditions. Recently, she posted on Facebook: “Can't breathe properly it so sore. Am posting as am lonely. Story of life. Wish was not so alone in world. Gotta be worth something to someone after all these years and after all I given. Am so shocked to be so all alone.”
