January 26 marks two years of sobriety for 43-year-old Weiss after he struggled with crystal meth addiction.
Via this transformation, Weiss has shared his inspiring journey and recovery. In addition to his role in 'Mighty Ducks', Weiss has had always made headlines for his run-ins with the law and his addiction to crystal methamphetamine.
He captioned his Instagram post as 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with 12 amazing steps.' In July 2021, Weiss graduated from his court-ordered drug program. Moreover, he had a burglary charge dismissed alongside. He has successfully completed his process of rehabilitation. For his commendable efforts, the district attorney of Yuba County, California, showered him with praises.
In the statement shared by the DA, they complemented Weiss on achieving and staying sober despite the issues in his personal life. They said: "[Weiss] demonstrated perseverance during his recovery complicated by the Covid-19 pandemic. He had to move treatment and transitional living programs on several occasions."

Updating his current status, the statement said, "Wiess regained employment and has been traveling across the country making guest appearances and signing autographs."
