“I went [to rehab], I got sober when I was 22 years old,” the actor told Croft. “You get panicked…and I got panicked for my life,” says Hoffman. “It really was just that.”

Hoffman, who briefly sought treatment once again last year, was found dead in his New York apartment of a suspected drug overdose on Sunday. While the medical examiner has declared that the results of the actor’s autopsy were inconclusive, 50 packets of heroin were reportedly found in Hoffman’s apartment.
