Well there goes many an aging fan girl's plan to be in a Two Coreys sandwich.
This really is a shame. He was quite talented and had so much potential. The scary side of addiction is that it is so difficult to beat. It was obviously too much for him.

Corey Haim was always intriguing as his fame seemed to surpass that of any project he actually worked on. "Lucas" was a sleeper that attained cult status after the fact; "The Lost Boys" was another cult hit that did not do good business upon its initial release. "Dream a Little Dream" was a huge bomb and everything else went direct to DVD.
It almost seems like it's the ones with the most talent who have the hardest time coping. Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Robert Downey Jr. (thankfully he's now doing well), just to name a few.
Corey Feldman was on Larry King Live last night - I didn't see it, but some of what he said is quoted in this article:

One night, the Grim Reaper was relaxing in front of the TV after a long, hard day when someone knocked at the door. The Reaper opened the door and was surprised to see Keith Richards standing there.
Keith said, "Sorry, mate, it's time for you to go."
Er, sorry. But I can't resist.
