Glee honored the memory of Cory Monteith on Thursday, Oct. 10, during the Finn Hudson tribute episode, "The Quarterback."

Although the episode did not address the cause of Finn's death, Monteith's costars Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison and Kevin McHale spoke in a PSA addressing drug addiction.

The clip, called "Our Friend," aired at the end of the tribute and was taped on the Glee set.

"Our friend Cory didn't look, or act like an addict," Lynch says. "He was happy, successful and seemingly had it all."

"Addiction is a serious disease that can hide in plain sight but no one needs to fight it alone," Morrison continues.

The PSA ends with McHale providing contact information for anyone that needs help.

The short, poignant and somber message ends with an in memoriam black and white photo of Monteith.

"The Quarterback," begins a few weeks after Finn's death and the episode doesn't include the funeral. The storyline centers around someone stealing Finn's letterman jacket and Mr. Schue inviting everyone to pay tribute by singing songs for Finn. Rachel (Lea Michele) shares a heart-breakingly beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love."
