Former Details Magazine Editor Dan Peres Talks About His Opioid Addiction in New Book

Dan Peres, the former editor-in-chief of Details, has a new memoir out called As Needed for Pain, that’s about his addiction to Vicodin and his life in “old media.”

Peres tells GQ magazine, “There are a number of uncommon elements about my story, and I recognize that,” he says. “It makes it maybe a little more interesting, or sexier. But at the end of the day, if we strip away the galas, and the movie premieres, and the celebrity friendships and things like that, I was a drug addict, who was struggling, and suffering, and doing everything in his power to keep that hidden.” Peres talked to GQ about how his addiction affected his confidence and sense of self, as well as his life in the magazine world during its Devil Wears Prada era.
