Hope Solo was a top women’s soccer player while her career lasted. She has seen a very terrible downfall. As noted last month, Solo was arrested was DUI and child endangerment. One month after that arrest, she has decided to turn her life around.
Solo took to Twitter, right at the end of April and let her followers know that she is headed to a rehabilitation center. She has a history of alcoholism problems but is now looking to receive treatment for it.
The 40-year-old World Cup Champion was set to be inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame. However, on Friday, she asked the Hall of Fame to postpone her induction ceremony until her rehab is completed.
“I have contacted the Hall of Fame and respectfully requested a postponement of my Hall of Fame induction ceremony to 2023,” Solo wrote. “I will be voluntarily entering an in-patient alcohol treatment program to address my challenges with alcohol.
“At this time, my energies and focus are totally directed to my health, healing, and taking care of my family,” she continued. “I want to thank the Hall of Fame for their support and for understanding my decision.”
Many of Solo’s followers are sending her messages of support and love since her tweet. Fans are happy that she is finally shifting the trajectory of her addiction-filled life. We cannot wait to see how the next chapter of her life after her treatment is over turns out.
