Lisa Marie Presley tells Paper magazine that she joined the Church of Scientology at the age of 18 when she was coming off a five-year drug-and-booze binge. “I was on a 72-hour bender,” she says. “Cocaine, sedatives, pot and drinking – all at the same time… I don’t know how I lived through it. I woke up one day with a bunch of people on the floor, and the coke dealer was in the room, and I said, ‘Everybody get the fu** out! That’s it. I’m done.’ I drove myself to the Church of Scientology and said, ‘Somebody fu**ing help me right now’.” Lisa Marie credits Scientology from saving her from ending up like her father Elvis.
