Ben Affleck Addresses Alcoholism & Rehab

Ben Affleck shared via his Facebook page that he has completed a rehabilitation treatment for alcoholism.

It is a BIG thing to admit you have a problem and to seek help for it.

In his statement, he said “I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it,” also “I’m lucky to have to 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.”

Here’s his whole statement:

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.   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.    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.

Wishing him the absolute best!
