David Arquette Checks Into Rehab

David Arquette has voluntarily checked himself into a rehab facility over the holiday weekend, a source close to the situation confirms to

The 39-year-old actor is seeking treatment for alcohol and other issues. He is not seeking treatment for drugs.

David spent New Year’s Eve partying at his nightclub Beacher’s Madhouse before checking himself into the facility.

He believes that this is “the right thing to do for his family,” according to TMZ.

Last October, David split from his wife Courteney Cox after 11 years of marriage.

UPDATE: Courteney tells People, “I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him.”

    This dude pulled a Tiger Woods.

    One minute, he has a good reputation, the next it is absolutely tarnished. Though to be fair, he kind of ruined his own with the Howard Stern incidents.

  • Jason

    Funny how you say he checked into rehab for alcohol and other things. He did not check into rehab for drugs! HELLO…ALCOHOL IS A DRUG! DUH!!!!!

  • Jordy

    I hope he can get help. I want him to pull through & get back together with Court. This is a very mature move, so I think he’s heading in the right direction & can be good.

  • Rhonda

    Good for him! It sounds like he is willing to do the hard work for his family. Not a huge fan of either him or his wife, but I’ve always thought little Coco was a doll.

  • orionsbelt

    I think he is being stiched up by ex who is pretending she is going to get back with him – messing with his mind so that she isn’t outed as the bad guy. I think she is in a relationship with that guy from her cougar series and I bet her goddess circle knew about it last year.

  • Reba

    I’m glad that he is taking action for his issues. It’s really hard to actually admit that you have a problem, so good for him. Also, I think it is so ridiculous that everybody is making him seem like the bad guy, when Courtney Cox is the one who initiated the separation because of her emotional attachment to her costar. Yeah, David over shared more than once, but clearly he is having a nervous breakdown because the woman he loves is no longer willing to fight for their marriage. So all of these “grow up” comments directed at him are just staggering to me. I think they are both EQUALLY to blame for what’s happening.

    Who didn’t see this coming?
    Anyone who ever thought he had a ‘good’ marriage didn’t listen to what he said. He had a controlling wife whom he let high-jack his manhood. He stayed a ‘child’ because he let her keep him as one; just to be with her. if he had stood up to her, their relationship wouldn’t have lasted as long as it did. It lasted until SHE decided she didn’t want it anymore. She’s still jerking him around since they separated.
    Courtney Cox is not nice or decent and he has never had a backbone. Maybe instead of going to HER therapist, now he’ll have his own who will tell him to man up and accept that Cox is a Grade A manipulative ball-buster and MOVE ON. Away from her influence he might have a chance, but he’ll need to do something he never did , grow up. He can still be a Father to his child without Kowtowing to Mother Hen, Cox.

    No one cares

    ALCOHOL is a DRUG just as NICOTINE is a DRUG. Just because they are both LEGAL DRUGS most of society attempts to minimalize their addictive and harmful effects. Good luck to David. Eleven years is tough to put aside especially if he feels he is still in love with Courtney. And then there is their little daughter…

    It’s commendable to see a Hollywood actor be accountable and take the initiative to help themselves. Some people know they have a problem but do not do anything about it and procrastinate. Hopefully he will be able to overcome his problem and get better.

  • thighmegatampon

    I wonder which came first: the divorce or the alcohol problem

  • Savi

    i think it’s a good and positive step. i was young when my dad went into rehab and his life and my own are better for it.
    best of luck to D.A.

    Is there treatment for doucheness?

  • maximum miley on twitter

    David has had addiction issues for years…he just hit bottom again, so hopefully this time around it will work for him. Alcoholics and addicts go through a lifetime struggle to stay clean so anyways he has a long road ahead of him and I wish him the best.

  • angie

    And the Elephant sitting in the middle of the living room
    might be Jennifer Aniston, who just might be put before David,
    every single time, all of the time….

    Oh, what a choice:
    Be with Jennifer on the Holidays, Vacations, etc.
    or be with the person that brings a smile, a hug and a kiss,
    BFF Jennifer Aniston…was there a pact made
    that out ways the marriage vows????
