After years of methamphetamine use, "Mighty Ducks" star Shaun Weiss is celebrating 170 days sober.

In January, Weiss was arrested for breaking into a California home and smashing a car windshield while high on meth. Two months later, the former child actor checked himself into a rehab center. His rehabilitation ended in June, and he now is in a sober-living facility.

Weiss is known for playing the character Goldberg in Disney's hockey-themed "Mighty Ducks."

In an effort to help Weiss raise money for his needed dental work, friend Drew Gallagher established a GoFundMe for fans to contribute. Gallagher also posted a photograph of a healthier-looking Weiss, writing:

"First lunch out in his new sober-living setup! We need to raise more months rent for this place, but look at how he's thriving! This new chapter is a bit scary for him but he looks and feels better than ever!"

As of Tuesday morning, the GoFundMe had raised more than $12,000 of the $25,000 goal.
