Detoxing with the Stars!

Aaron Carter told his fans the music never stopped in 2016 with his single Fool's Gold – but back in 2009, he was close to calling it quits.

The I Want Candy singer infamously went to Betty Ford for addiction treatment in early 2011, but he finally revealed what sparked his decision to get help on Saturday!

Aaron stopped by Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now? over the weekend to discuss his history of drug and alcohol abuse — and ended up sharing a story about how Dancing with the Stars changed his life.

Apparently, Aaron was "broke" and living in Nick Carter's guest house before his DWTS stunt casting, which forced him to stop drinking in order to get into shape. However, after his 5th place finish on the ABC reality show failed to garner him any solid record deals… he fell back into his life of partying.

Luckily, the highs of his Dancing success allowed his mom to notice the lows once he really hit rock bottom… finally prompting him to enter rehab!

Regardless of the reason, we're glad you're doing better now, Aaron!!
