Justin Bieber opened up about his 'dark past' in his Seasons docuseries last night and admitted he used to smoke weed, pop pills and take hard drugs as soon as he woke up to get through the day.

The teen heartthrob, now 25, admitted that he now sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber and gets regular IV infusions following years of suffering from his severe drug addiction.

The global popstar confessed his downward spiral began at just 13-years-old and saw him turn to a codeine-based cocktail plus MDMA and mushrooms to escape fame.

After deciding to get clean and sober up, the Yummy hitmaker described how he now sleeps in an oxygen-filled chamber and takes anti-depressants as part of his recovery process.

The Canadian said at his lowest point he feared his dependence on drugs would kill him as he continued to binge on ecstasy and hallucinogenic mushrooms daily.

He added: I was young, like everybody in the industry and people in the world who experiment and do normal, growing up things.

"But my experience was in front of cameras and I had a different level of exposure. I had a lot of money and a lot of things."

Justin insisted that he now tries to 'take care' of his body instead of abuse it and sleeps in hyperbaric chambers to help control his anxiety.

The Canadian said: "It fills up with oxygen. I really have been struggling with a lot of anxiety. You get more oxygen to your brain so it decreases your stress levels. It's pretty cool."

The treatment encourages healing through oxygen in air pressure levels and Bieber's wife Hailey, 23, said they have plenty in their house while slamming claims it's "rich people s**t".

During last night's episode, viewers watched as Justin climbed inside the plastic, deflated contraption to explain how it works.

In addition, the Love Yourself singer also said he receives NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) infusions through an IV drip.

As Justin described how the drips "flush out some of the toxins", Hailey attempted to discuss the NAD process.

She told cameras: "For people who used to have a drug problem, when they get sober, the pleasure centers of their brain don't work the same.

"So what NAD does is actually helps to repair that part of that brain and it helps repair the pleasure centers to balance them back out."
