Ben Affleck recently finished another stint in rehab.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” Affleck wrote on Facebook on Tuesday. “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.”
Affleck spent time in rehab in 2001.
In his Facebook post, the 44-year-old thanked his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, for taking care of their three children amid his struggles.
“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,” he said. “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
It’s been a rough couple of years for Affleck, between his split from Garner and harsh reviews of some of his latest movies. But in recent weeks, it was reported that the longtime couple could be reconciling, nearly two years after announcing their plans to divorce.
