Comedian Artie Lange showed a dramatic transformation on Friday when he appeared happy and healthy in a photo on his Twitter – which contrasts sharply with mugshot photos taken by him in May after a violation of his probationary period.

The smiling 51-year-old seemed slim and in good health while posing with his hands in his pockets to commemorate his resignation from a rehab after a court order.

Lange also marked September 10 as the seven and a half months anniversary of his sobriety, which over the past three decades struggled with a serious heroin and cocaine addiction.

& # 39; Great to be home! & # 39; Certified Tall exulting. "7 months 14 days sober but one day at a time. Many new stories to tell. Will announce some new tour dates on Friday. Thanks for the support. I love you all. & # 39;

The news about Lange's resignation comes just a week after reports suggested that the former Mad TV star was facing an everlasting rehab, despite reports that he was doing well & following the rules & # 39 ;.

At the end of the program, it was also suggested that Lange would probably be transferred to a New Jersey court and sentenced to prison.

After his tweet on Friday, it seems that Lange is now definitively home and will soon start a new tour.

Lange & # 39; s long fight against drug addiction is well-known and his current legal problems stem from an arrest in March 2017 in his native New Jersey.

At that time, officers discovered heroin and cocaine in his luxury Range Rover.

Just two months later, he was reportedly pulled across the Garden State Parkway before officers found him with 81 decks of heroin, including a bag of heroin on his lap with a straw, New Jersey reported.

He was sentenced to four years in prison for that crime.

Lange, however, made an effort to keep up with the court-imposed requirements, and in January of this year he was arrested after a positive test for cocaine, while still under the conditions of his probationary period.

Two months later he was held again after a positive test for the substance.

Lange spent three days in prison before being ordered to complete a six-month drug program that he underwent when he was arrested in May.

As part of the program, Lange had to collect waste and gas. He is pictured while working in the back of a garbage truck last month

Lange appeared famously as a co-star in the hit show of the shock jock from 2001 to 2008.

In April, the problem star saw a hi-vis vest wearing garbage while hooked to the side of a garbage truck.

One of Lange & # 39; s representatives wrote above the post: & # 39; Just heard from Artie. Someone broke this video and he got it back. He wanted everyone to know he was good at it. Per Artie & # 39; It is true that I am working to satisfy my drug court program. I work with wonderful people. Nothing wrong with a little hard work. I love you all and can't wait to be on stage again & # 39 ;.

Lange has been famously candid about his long fight against drug abuse.

In December 2018, he shared a selfie with Twitter and said his nose was terribly distorted due to more than three decades of drug use.

Despite his long-term drug problem, Lange has had a glittering career as a comedian.

Prior to his association with Howard Stern, he enjoyed success as a stand-up comic and as a star in the Mad TV series with sketch comedy.

He has also published three books and has recently appeared as a returning cast member in the popular HBO show Crashing, produced by Judd Apatow.
