Al Jourgensen of the industrial band Ministry has revealed he will be heading to rehab on February 3 to receive treatment for alcohol dependency. The news was posted on his Facebook page where he also wrote “ My sobriety will not, and I repeat, not knock off my sarcasm. If anything, it will intensify. [I] kicked dope and crack by myself, but I need help on this one, so all your thoughts and prayers are more than welcome." The man is no stranger to narcotic issues as he has overdosed and quit drugs many times throughout his career. In a September 2013 interview with the Washington Times, Jourgensen revealed he had been six years clean off drugs, but he was still using alcohol.

Last year Jourgensen released his book “Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen,” recapping the craziest moments in Al's career. Ministry also released their last album in 2013 entitled “From Beer to Eternity.” Due to the death of guitarist Mike Scaccia, Jourgensen has stated it would be the last Ministry album. The book and the album are available now on Ministry's official website.
