Ben Affleck Reveals He Went to Rehab for Alcohol Addiction

Ben Affleck just revealed to his fans that he recently completed a stint in rehab to treat his alcohol addiction.

The 44-year-old actor wrote a statement on his Facebook account, in which he thanks his “co-parent” Jennifer Garner for her support.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” Ben wrote in his statement. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”

“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery,” Ben continued.

Last week there was a report that Ben and Jen have put their divorce on hold.

  • Do Tell

    I was noticing his face, too.

    One thing he should do is stay away from Vegas. When you really make up your mind for change, you have to stop going around the temptations.

    Good luck to them. Life is short. He has a good wife and family. I hope he really appreciates what he has. Continuing in some kind of therapy would be good.
