The 'Saturday Night Live' vet talked about seeking help for his drug use during a comedy show with John Mulaney and Jon Stewart in Atlantic City, New Jersey
Pete Davidson came clean about getting clean.
“I am fresh out of rehab, everyone,” he told the crowd at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Ettes Arena. “I got that post-rehab glow. Seventh time’s the charm!”
Davidson revealed he took ketamine, a dissociative drug used medically as an anesthetic, daily for four years. “It was magical,” he told the crowd.
With his 30th birthday coming up in November, Davidson told the audience he believes you “can’t do drugs in your 30s” because “it’s not cute anymore” and “you’re just a drug addict” when you do drugs at that age.
"Pete will often check himself into rehab to work on these issues," a source close to Davidson said at the time. "His friends and family have been supportive during this time."

Mulaney, 41, took the stage after Davidson on Sunday and referred to himself as “a former amateur drug trafficker” during his set. The dad of 21-month-old Malcolm began a 60-day stint in rehab in December 2020 after relapsing on his sobriety.
When Stewart, 60, closed Sunday’s show, he told the audience they got to witness a full lifecycle with the afternoon’s performers, “from rehab to recovery to hospice.” The former Daily Show host also joked about bringing two comedians in recovery to perform in a casino, calling it the 13th step of a 12-step program.
“I was like, somebody has to put me in a house where there is literally nothing” Davidson told Stern, 69, in 2018. “I had too much access.”
After completing his latest stint in rehab this summer, Davidson stopped by one of Dave Chapelle’s four New York City shows in August celebrating the Chapelle Show star’s 50th birthday. Along with his tour with Mulaney and Stewart, Davidson embarked on a handful solo standup shows beginning Sept. 5 that will run through Oct. 21.
