Ben Affleck shares he’s completed rehab for ‘alcohol addiction’


Ben Affleck, known for his numerous roles in movies such as Argo and Gone Girl, has announced that he has completed treatment for alcohol addiction.

Affleck made the announcement through a post on his Facebook page:

This isn’t the first time the actor has found himself in trouble with alcohol, Affleck also sought help for alcohol abuse back in 2001.

Affleck is now back at home and on dad duty as he and his ex Jennifer Garner were seen taking their youngest son, five-year-old Samuel, to school on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

The actor shows in his statement his love for his children by noting, “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.” He also takes note of the support system that he has had through the treatment.

We wish nothing but the best of luck for Ben Affleck and his family.
