UPDATE: Zac reportedly went to rehab for a cocaine addiction, not for alcohol, according to TMZ.

“He’s healthy, happy and not drinking. He’s taking time to focus on working,” a source shared to E! News about Zac.

Zac can be seen in the upcoming film Parkland, which he just promoted at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.

    Well, well, well. Isn’t that interesting? Most of us non-fans KNEW he was looking bad, and was spending WAY too much time partying with the wrong crowd. Talk about his fans being in denial, instead of being concerned. Well, it’s good he faced his demon, and got away from that crowd. Maybe an apology to those of us who recognized all the signs of addiction.

    @A: well creating the story over alcohol addiction and then changing it to cocaine doesn’t make the story true at all. like seriously, they had this story for five months and they come out with it now ?? right when he was being praised for his role in Parkland? and also changing the scenario of the story, sorry this just doesn’t make sense at all

    he has been focusing really hard on his career lately and yes maybe the reason for this is hanging out with a bad crowd but his friends don’t make him and i really appreciate that he sorted this out before it went too far.

    I am shocked to hear this and even more sad to hear that he had to go through something like this. I am thankful that he was able to do this privately, which shows he’s definitely more aware of his situation than most celebrities are in this day in age. Hopefully everyone can respect his privacy and just let him deal with this without getting all crazy and in his face. :\

    OMG, I’m shocked! I hope rehab really was succesful for him.. :( I had no idea. And he just doesn’t seem the type of guy who would do coke!! And be addicted to it. Ugh, I just hope he doesn’t end up like Cory Monteith. Because I was so shocked when he went to rehab. :(

    I’m surprised he managed to keep rehab under wraps but I’m not surprised by the drug use. The crowd he was running with were a very fast living, druggy crowd and there were many sightings of him partying hard with them. He’s always seemed like he had a good work ethic so it must have been very serious if it interfered with his work. It’s good that he got help and managed to keep it under wraps for this long. Good luck to him going forward.

    I wonder why it suddenly leaked now. Maybe someone was threatening to spill the info.

    I would not be surprised if this is part of the reason Vanessa walked out on their relationship. Going back to that time, he was VERY into his bad crowd, and was probably heading in a bad direction. I’ll bet Vanessa saw this, and tried to keep him away from those friends as much as she could. But when it became obvious his friends were bugging him to party, bathe in p*ssy, and end his relationship, I think she was done. It’s very possible now, isn’t it?

    this is so sad to all his fans who adore him so much.

    Knew it Says:

    And no wonder he’s been hiding. Didn’t want anyone to know. And doesn’t it explain why all he wants to do now is “focus on his career”, cause he needs to stay away from partying? And also the reason he’s wanted to stay out of LA? It ‘s all becoming clear now.

    I wonder if he saw what happened with Cory Montieth and decided to get help so the same thing didn’t happen to him? Or did he go before that? Either way I’m glad he got help.

    Now we know why Zac Efron stopped hanging around Tom Welling and all of Zac Efron’s friend like Tim Newfang, Ryan Rottman, and Alix William. Zac Efron and Tom Welling were inseparable in Austin after filming Parkland. Tom Welling and Zac Efron were always spotted in bars drinking and partying. I’m glad Zac decided to address his substance abuse problem and get help. Tom Welling is in denial about his substance abuse problem, if he doesn’t address his substance abuse he’s going to end up like Cory Montieth!

    I knew it. When your inner circle contains Lindsey ‘s crowd what do you expect. Wasn’t he a Soho house last month? Watch out RPutz that new crew of yours seems to be a bunch of recovering addicts. Damn Zac, thought the Putz would beat you there first.

    I wonder if he wishes he could get Vanessa back now?

    OMG to everyone making snarky comments, drug addiction is not funny. I have respect for anyone who admits they have a problem and seek help. It is a long road, so all the best to Zac and I hope he finds the strength to stay clean.

    I think Vanessa needs to be with him, he stuck by her through her difficult times and i think it’s only fair if she does the same. And please zac get rid of your so called friends that you have. Be with Vanessa that’s Where you belong!!!!!
