Ben Affleck reveals he underwent treatment for alcoholism
Ben Affleck has said he recently completed treatment for alcoholism.
The actor, who previously went to rehab in 2001, made the revelation in a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday night.
The 44-year-old father of three said the condition was “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,” he 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 said he was fortunate to have the love and support of family and friends including his “co-parent, Jen”.
