Sweetin played Stephanie Tanner in the popular ABC sitcom from 1987 to 1995.

Sweetin was working for a Los Angeles rehab facility and living in a studio apartment on its property after her separation from third husband Morty Coyle. She said, though, she was not seeking treatment there.  

"I am absolutely NOT in rehab," Sweetin said in August. "I work for the center and they have been really generous in helping me with a place to stay as Morty wanted me out by the end of the month. The owners of the facility said I could stay here as I got things figured out."

Sweetin and Coyle were married in March 2012 and have a 2-year-old daughter, Beatrix, together. She was previously married to Shaun Holguin from 2002 to 2006 and Cody Herpin from 2007 until 2010, with whom she had a daughter named Zoie.

Sweetin wrote about her struggle with drugs in her 2009 memoir "UnSweetined." After she married Holguin, who was a Los Angeles police officer, she began doing crystal meth and quickly became addicted to it. 

"I wanted to prove that I wasn't the girl from 'Full House,' that I could get more trashed than everyone else," Sweetin wrote in her book.

Sweetin said that she was able to keep her crystal meth addiction from Holguin until 2005, when she was hospitalized after partying with friends. The two divorced after Sweetin finished her time in rehab.

Sweetin met Herpin when she was in sober living with others from her rehab center.
