Zac Efron Really Completed Two Rehab Stints: Report

Zac Efron Really Completed Two Rehab Stints: Report

Zac Efron reportedly completed two separate stints in rehab earlier this year, according to TMZ.

The 25-year-old actor entered a private residence in March to receive intensive outpatient care for several weeks to try and clean himself up after allegedly doing cocaine for more than two years.

Zac then relapsed in April while shooting the movie Neighbors, according to the report. After filming on the movie wrapped he got outpatient care for the second time.

There are allegedly several reasons that Zac started using coke: issues with his parents who are “still trying to control his life and decision-making,” being upset with his movie career, “girl issues” although nothing to do with Vanessa Hudgens, and being surrounded by a “bad group of friends.”

We’re glad that Zac received help and hope that he is doing well!

    Who keeps leaking this information, one of his stupid friends. He was just starting to build some credibility, and now he’s going the Lohan route. Girl trouble..what a load of b******. An addict is an addict, with exact same problems as everybody else. Good luck Zac you’re really gonna need it now.

    What does ‘girl issues’ mean? If zac was gay I hope he would just come out if not coming out was ******** him up this much; coke should never be an option

    @gerd why he shoul go on Lohan route? How many addicts there are in Hollywood? How many of them have a trash life? Many and for most of them the truth never came out but they keep on working. There are actors who got bad reputation when they were young (addictions, jail) and they’re still working and they’re A list stars (e.g. Robert D. Jr, Whalberg). If Zac tries to focus on work and has talent he will continue his career regardless what he does or what he did in his private life. If he makes bad choices choosing movies or he proves to not have any talent he won’t work or people will only think he’s just like Lohan or like other former ‘gone bad route’ celebrities.

    Zac didn’t take the ‘Lohan route’ because if he did, he would already be charged for DUI or something like that. He wasn’t, which means he had a motivation to become clean.
    It just kind of hit me and I immediately thought about Cory. So sad, I hope it doesn’t end this way…

    Funniest part about recent Zac posts is watching the idiot hudgens die hards migrate over to rub in zacs problems, or bring up Vanessa’s name repeatedly, like how she ‘dumped zac’, or how she is squeaky clean and never has done drugs herself, etc. They will do anything to give her more milage around this website. Hope he stays clean. The past is the past. Move forward with new resolve.

    @Correction: All that attentionwhoring on her part probably got him started. Maybe he got so down and depressed and started coke-ing out, just to pick himself up again lulz

    Correction Says:


    EVERYONE would need drugs to endure spending time with dumb b***ch Vanessa.

    shaper than Sharp Says:

    you really cannot be too smart to even start snorting the coke like it will ever lead to anything good lol he probably thought it would make him legit and whole fool !

    Maika Says:

    @Nightwish: correction, how about the other way around, actually issues started early for him, and not vanessa related I see, plus if you are intelligent, you wouldn’t get too involved or just involved, stop trying to look others bad, his parents worried for him, but he cut them out of his life for a while too

    pika Says:

    smells like crap. i mean girl problems? sounds like a teen drama not someones life. this report either came out of jareds a$$ or tmz’s because im not buying. i do believe that he was really depressed tho but the other problems sound ridiculous

    truth Says:

    i just want to hear what zac has to say about all this. it doesnt seem to add up but if he says its true then so be it.

    hannah Says:

    oh god the fact that jared added it had nothing to do with vanessa, makes me think she had involvement in it. drugs effect people in different ways. there are obvious cokeheads and there are the ones who look completely normal and i think thats what happened with zac and vanessa. on the last post i wrote a lot about him and her u guys should read it, i mean there are two sides to every story.

    hannah Says:

    @Nightwish: im here supporting zac so if ur just hating then leave and go support hudgens elsewhere.

    Nightwish Says:

    @Maika: im certainly not trying to belittle Zac or his problems because hes making the effort to change. If i feel like poking fun at Hudgens, good luck trying to stop me. Go rally your friends. Way to go EFRON!

    Bad group of friends, like Tom Welling, Tim Newfang, Alix William, Ryan Rottman and Tanner Beard!

    Relapses happen sometimes, but it doesn’t mean he can’t stay clean the second time around. I wish all the best to Zac in his recovery and in his future career.

    Nightwish Says:

    @Maika: Right, so Zac was involved with drugs before HSM came along. Wow, he started early. So through his relationship with pudgens, he was using and apparently didnt give Van a second thought, whether she urged him to stop or was casually using along the way herself. Either way, Hudgens was an insignificant part of his life because he prioritized partying before her. Can you blame him? Choosing between a plethora of hot chicks or ball and chain Hudgens? That was a no brainer LOL
