As Three Days Grace fans continue to absorb the surprising news from earlier today Jan. With the unspecified 'health issues' being cited as the reason, speculation stirred that it might be connected to Gontier's previously publicized struggles with drugs and addiction. But Gontier explains that he is perfectly sober and is just ready for a new chapter in his life.
