Robin Williams Enters Rehab to Maintain His Sobriety

Robin Williams Enters Rehab to Maintain His Sobriety

Robin Williams is currently checked into the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center near Lindstrom, Minnesota to maintain his sobriety.

The 62-year-old comedian is currently in a part of the facility known as The Lodge to maintain long-term sobriety, TMZ reports. Robin did not fall off the wagon and will reportedly be staying at the facility for several weeks.

In the 80s, Robin quit drugs and alcohol and was sober for twenty years before falling off of the wagon. He entered rehab again in 2006 and has been sober since.

We wish Robin continued success in his recovery!

    He was one of my favorite actors growing up, and I know he has a daughter who needs him. As a girl who has lost her father, it’s rough not to have one so I hope he gets it together and sticks with sobriety. People think it’s so easy to get clean, but it’s not. Heck, I know people who can’t go a day without coffee, social media or texting, and that’s an addiction that won’t kill you (unless you text/drive). I hope Robin beats his.

  • Amy

    He didn’t fall off the wagon? That’s doubtful. I wish him well.

  • TK

    @Amy: Maybe he has the urge to drink and is taking control before it gets bad. There are people like this in the world.

  • hmm

    Hope he gets through this. He is my favorite comedy actor. Remembering Mork and Mindy and Good morning vietnam

  • Cate

    It’s good that he is seeking help. Good luck to him.

  • Island Planet

    I wonder how this announcement fits in with the ‘rigorous honesty’ of his program. People who feel they MAY relapse attend more meetings and work the steps with their sponsor. Never heard of someone locking themselves down while still sober. Doesn’t happen.

  • Drats

    then why is he in rehab? I know for a fact that Hazelden does not accept you unless you have a problem. Of course he fell off the wagon.

  • NEXT

    makes no sense, you dont enter rehab unless you fall off the wagon or do drugs again…. duh

  • Maddie

    Whether he (or his PR team) is being truthful about his sobriety or not, good for him for seeking help.

  • Jules

    He was a little big as Peter Pan, but amazingly adapted for the role.

    Underneath every addiction there is something appearing to be missing. People are at that point where they will give themselves permission to do something they know is not right in hopes of filling up that missing link. The link of really being happy. Mr. Williams stands out because he is so well known for his type of humor and acting. I think many know the answer but continue to look for a way to be happy and joyful in strictly a worldly way and that just wont get it. Most people understand that recovery programs are usually bible based step programs trying to help people achieve sobriety without having to say the you know what word, the “God or Jesus Word’. Honest love is almost impossible to find. Imagine your best friend pushing you out of the way to safety from an oncoming vehicle…saving your life and being killed in the process. That my friends is real love. Now imagine a friend that not only pushed you out of the way from unquestionable death but a friend that had the same love for every person on this earth the same as the love for you. The problem could be guilt. Deep down inside you recognize it is all true but to have real happiness and joy, it is conditional. Would you yourself try? Is the pain and emptiness worth the conceived independence, freedom and what one might think is love?
    Mr. Williams, I believe is reaching out and I hope that these people in the rehab really are helping him find the truth about love. So, instead of people wishing Mr. Williams well, try and be a friend to and for him, and if you don’t want to die for him, can you at least pray for him? Even if you don’t believe, if your prayer is sincere, you’ll be heard. Recovery is no more about having a higher power now, it is time to grow up and say what has been needed said for 2,000 years……. “Jesus is real and is God”………………… Amen…………..”Please help Mr. Williams Oh yeah and Lord, HELP ME’.

    Why negative comments ? Whatever it takes to stay alive and healthy. I applaud him for being serious in his walk.

  • Mike

    Hardly believe there is a word of truth in this press release. I wonder what they are hiding by throwing Mr. Williams under the bus this way. Shameful business these flacks and the unscrupulous websites who feed on them
