Resolved Question: Is including a friend’s cocaine addiction controversial in a college essay?

I wrote a college essay about ways I’ve grown as a person, strengthened, and matured, and I included a few sentences about overcoming depression and being hospitalized, and helped my best friend cope with a cocaine addiction. It’s not all what the essay is about, but those two things are included. My dad looked at my essay without me knowing and told me today that I should probably take those things out, because they’re controversial and I’ll be looked at as a liability. What do you think? What should I do?
