Wolfgang Gartner announced in the early afternoon, August 15, that he will be going off grid to enter a rehabilitation program for his drug addiction. As a result, his upcoming gigs during this time have been cancelled.
“I’ve battled with substance abuse and addiction on and off for my entire life since I was 14 years old,” began Gartner’s statement on social media explaining his move to seek treatment. “In the past six months, I have fallen deeper into addiction than ever before in my life, and recently hit a point that people tend to call ‘rock bottom.’”
After realizing this low point, Wolfgang voluntarily checked himself into a treatment center. He noted in his status his intention to return stronger and “better than ever.”
