Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab for Substance Addiction

Cory Monteith Checks Into Rehab for Substance Addiction

Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab for substance addiction, his rep confirms to

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.”

Wise decision on his part, wish him well

# 4

Hope he gets the help he needs. Nothing but so much much respect for him.

@Voldemort: That is so rude. Just because you don’t, doesn’t mean no one else does. Get over yourself. As for him, I’m glad he is getting help and confronting his problem. I wish him the best.

I’m in shock!
He seemed so happy w/ Lea…
I know he has past issues w/ drugs…but didn’t see this coming at all!
Thats real life, people…addiction is always a tough and constant battle!

Wow, please support ppl around you with these sorts of issues, if we can’t tell someone like Cory could have substance abuse issues, then certainly we can’t tell when a loved one is in going through the same thing…
Speedy recovery!

i posted a comment that i respected him for what he’s doing and it’s “awaiting moderation.”

This doesn’t surprise me. He was looking bad with all the weight loss.
Waiting for them to milking this too.

I can’t say I didn’t see it coming. Didn’t “want” to see it coming, but honestly he’s looked really thin and pale and just not himself lately. Hopefully rehab will help and he’ll get his life back on track.

I love that people write that they are shocked that it happened, but then they mention his past drug use. It’s no surprise, many addicts fall back in old habits especially when under stress. I hope he gets the help he needs.

I’d turn to drugs as well if I hat to deal with Lea Michele.

wishing him all the best. we all love and support him

Poor Cory! With fame comes a lot of pressure. I don’t watch the show anymore but he’s always seemed like a great guy so I wish him all the best.

april 1st joke?

A lot more sympathy from the commenters for this dude, than Lindsay Lohan.

Not surprised !

Still waiting for them to say April Fools..

He didn’t hit anyone with his car or steal from anyone yet, he didn’t make himself look 20 years older than he is and then throw a tantrum because peole don’t call him pretty. I don’t watch Glee but I haven’t heard about him being unprofessional on set or delaying other people’s jobs, partying all night and then missing work days etc. Lindsay is so much more than addiction. She is a walking mess who should be in jail instead of partying every night and not caring about consequences.

Wow, Did not expect that !!
Still waiting that they’ll say its April Fools…
Cause his doesn’t look like an addicted, and so Cool!

ooh Cory, i salute you!

hoping you all the best….
