Addison returned on season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy to help teach residents. She had an honest conversation about her marriage in the episode, “With a Little Help from My Friends” with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone).

“During the pandemic, I drank so much red wine I seriously considered checking myself into rehab,” Addison revealed. She revealed she struggled so much that she looked swollen. The mother admitted she hated being home and lost it.

Henry played video games and Jake started to play with model trains at the time. Addison claimed she started to fight with her husband and almost left him. But realized her problem had more to do with her mental health.
