Even seemingly level-headed celebrities are not immune to the excesses of living the high life. Below are some of the most beloved Hollywood stars that went to rehab for either drug or alcohol abuse:
1. Ben Affleck
One of Hollywood’s biggest stars is a recovering alcoholic. In 2001, Affleck checked himself into a Malibu-based rehab facility, Promises, for alcohol abuse. According to his representative, the director-actor “is a self-aware and smart man” who decided to life a fuller life without alcohol.
The actor said that he chose to seek professional help because he is committed to living a healthier life. After completing the program, Affleck remains sober and thanked his fans, family and friends for support.
