Ben Affleck Goes Back to Treatment
Ben Affleck, an American actor best known for his roles in movies such as Good Will Hunting, Argo, and The Accountant, is reportedly back on the road to rehab. A self-admitted alcoholic, Affleck’s estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, reportedly picked him up last week to bring him to a long term inpatient facility in LA. This decision to go to rehab comes after a period of sobriety following a previous stay in treatment.
Last year, Affleck said he completed treatment for alcohol addiction and admitted that it was an issue he would “continue to confront.” At the time, he said, “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.”
He thanked his friends and family, including Garner, for their support and care. He added, “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
