“It’s all been a blessing, just being able to focus on my health and redouble the efforts on recovery,” Irsay said, via The Star. “It’s been a long path. I still have chronic pain. But it was the good thing. … In some ways, (going through rehab) is my greatest moment. It takes courage to try and overcome the difficulties you have.”
Despite his March arrest in which he “failed several field sobriety tests,” Irsay claims he has been alcohol-free for more than a decade. While he wouldn’t go into specifics about the night he was arrested, the Colts owner said he didn’t feel the need to apologize for his actions.
