Celebrated Hollywood actor Ben Affleck said that he completed
rehab for his alcohol addiction recently. The actor who will soon
be seen in a solo Batman flick opens up about his health condition
and his excessive obsession for alcohol.
"I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something
I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront, I want
to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be." Said
"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." Affleck
"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." The actor stated
Affleck had also been to rehab for alcohol back in 2001.
"I went to rehab for being 29 and partying too much and not
having a lot of boundaries and to clear my head and try to get some
idea of who I wanted to be," Affleck said earlier.
"It was more a 'let me get myself straight,' before it became a
rite of passage." Explained the actor.
