Carole Fields Arnold, co-founder of the Musicians' Assistance Program (MAP), died Friday (June 11) in Los Angeles of undisclosed causes. She was 59.

Arnold founded MAP in the early '90s with late husband Buddy Arnold, who passed away last November. The organization helps music industry professionals to obtain treatment and recover from drug and alcohol addiction.

Before moving to L.A. in 1984 to run Nina Blanchard's commercial department, Arnold spent 15 years at New York's Ford Modeling Agency. She married Arnold in 1986 while building her own commercial talent agency, which she left in 1996 to focus solely on MAP.

Details on her memorial service and fund are pending.
