Chinese playwright, Ning Caishen, was released from a detention center on Sunday after being detained for drug-use in late June.

Ning, whose birthname is Chen Wanning, was arrested after police raided his apartment in Beijing's Chaoyang district for suspected drug-use.

There, police reportedly found the playwright using narcotics, along with a bag of methamphetamine and various drug paraphernalia.

The playwright confessed at the detention center that he had been using drugs since the end of 2013. Ning said that the drugs helped him combat his fatigue from writing.

Shortly after his release, Ning wrote on his Weibo account that he deeply regrets his drug use and promises to stay drug-free.

Ning first earned nation-wide fame when writing for the sitcom, "My Own Swordsman," which aired in 2007.
