Heche, who dated Ellen DeGeneres in the ’90s, has been very open about her past battle with substance abuse.

“I drank. I smoked. I used drugs. I had sex with people. I did everything I could to get the shame out of my life,” she told TSTIME News in 2001, adding that she used alcohol and drugs to cope with sexual abuse by her father.

Heche’s representatives were not immediately available.
