Recently Released Raiders Player Moved into Alcoholism Rehab

Dr. Jeffrey Berman, MD By May 5, 2018

After having what is probably the single worst period of time in his entire life, Aldon Smith has been placed into a rehab center for his apparent alcoholism. Apparently the catalyst for his string of problems of late was some incident that happened in March. Since then, he has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, one of which being domestic violence.
