Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab for Substance Addiction
Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab for substance addiction, his rep confirms to JustJared.com.
The 30-year-old Glee actor “has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction,” his rep said in a statement. “He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
Cory previously opened up about his addiction issues when he was nineteen.
“I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too,” Cory said about his previous issues in an earlier interview with People. “But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it.”
