Ben Affleck Completes First Month of Rehab: 'He's Taking Things More Seriously'

Ben Affleck has completed his first 30 days in rehab.

The 46-year-old actor has spent the majority of the past month at the facility but will reportedly be continuing his treatment.

While he has been given permission to come and go, getting help “is all that matters to him right now.”

“He seems to be taking things more seriously this time. He feels really bad and sorry about doing this because of the kids,” a source told Us Weekly.

Ben checked into rehab back in August with the help of ex Jennifer Garner and a sober coach.

His brother Casey recently opened up about Ben‘s experience, saying that he’s currently “doing great.”

    Oh please, this guy is a joke. This is his 4th in rehab and he takes daily breaks, is still seeing his young Playboy bunny and so on. I personally think he doesn’t give a fuck anymore. This rehab thing is just for show and PR. He’s going to drink again.

    there was nothing pre venting him from taking it seriously the first handful of times. all PR nonsense.

    Taking holidays from rehab just shows he’s not committed to getting well. You can’t cherry pick the parts you want to do. Addiction doesn’t work that way. Disappointed for his children that he doesn’t appear to be taking this seriously enough. Just because the hangover has gone doesn’t equate to recovery. He will never get better.

    Ben spends more time out of rehab than he does in it. He’s a joke. You’d think he’d take his FOURTH time in rehab a bit more seriously. Ben only went to get Jen off his back. He’ll be drunk again in no time.

    He is foolish to date a girl who can be his daughter. And that girl is likewise foolish too hoping to be in the movies probably (?) thru association with Ben A. That girl has no morals at all!

    If and when Jen is already with another guy, a lot better than Ben A., only then will Ben realize what a good mom and wife and friend Jen is and that it is his loss to let her go.

    RDJ had multiple stints with rehab and prison… he never gave up and THAT is why he succeeded. Ben isn’t giving up. Quit hating.

  • angeleyez13

    I guess we will all see how much longer Ben will stay in rehab. Sadly, what is being reported, seems to be the opposite of what Ben is doing! He should really consider staying longer. Stats show that people who remain in rehab longer have a much better chance of remaining sober…
    I really hope he can get well for his children!!!
