Orlando Brown first went viral in 2016 for making claims that he slept with Raven Symone. His alarming posts and social media antics worsened over time.
Fortunately, Orlando is on the road to recovery.
He was seen looking a lot healthier while giving a speech about a church that he went to that has helped him kick his addictions.
‘My name is Orlando Brown. You may know me from a little show from back in the day called That’s So Raven. I went through a lot. I experimented with crystal meth, with weed. I didn’t know what I was doing. I was addicted to the internet. All kinds of stuff. My fiancée told me about this place and when I came it was amazing. I had a blast. These brothers accepted me for who I am. Church is lovely. All the leaders are brilliant, their geniuses and men of God.’
As the clip circulated on Twitter, many people were glad to see that the actor is taking his recovery seriously.
‘Wow. I’m so happy to see #orlandobrown in church talking about some of his struggles he has been through. Father I ask that You keep Your hand on his life,’ tweeted one person.

‘Beloved child actor #OrlandoBrown has recently made a public appearance while sharing his testimony of overcoming drug abuse, addiction to social media, being engaged and finding the Lord! Cousins let’s continue to send love and light to him and his family!’ tweeted Noir Online.
This fan wrote: ‘Good for him. I hope he surrounds himself with the right people to help him stay on track and if he relapses, helps brings him back.’
Apparently, the facility that Brown is staying in is called Rise Church.
The place of worship definitely goes about recovery and religion differently.
‘Focusing on outreach, discipleship, and leadership, it aims to seeks to ‘Rethink Church’ with unique methods that are relevant with today’s culture while never compromising foundational Biblical truths and principles,’ according to The Grio.
It’s great to see Orlando making improvement.
