In addition to the sensitivity to alcohol that predslady mentioned, addictions specialists who believe that there is a gene related to addiction also believe that said gene is much more prevalent in the Native American/Inuit community.
In between whatever addictions may exist, Tootoo's family background, and the tragedy he has been through in his life, it is no surprise that he found himself in this situation. I really hope this is a positive experience for him and that he gets himself cleaned up both physically and mentally.
It's likely that Jordin Tootoo was
to "voluntarily" check himself in after failing drug tests. That's how the NHL works in these situations, it's all about image. Instead of people getting fired, they're "asked to step down", for example.
Either way, regardless of the technicalities of this situation, I'm very happy that he'll be getting help and wish him the best. He'll be missed, that's for sure.
