Ben Affleck Went Back to Rehab for his Alcohol Addiction


Ben Affleck has been in the news for quite some time now but he admitted to recently going back to rehab for his alcohol addiction.

Ben Affleck has seemingly finished a recent stint in rehab for his alcohol addiction. The actor, famous for his work in Good Will Hunting and most recently Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, went to rehab for alcoholism back in 2001 as well.

Ben wrote a Facebook post about his rehab stint.

"“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.”"

This comes just a few days after the announcement that Jennifer Garner had called off divorce proceedings. Ben was married to Garner for a little over ten years. The news last month that Garner was finally ready to file to go through impending divorce made everyone sad. But now it seems as if we have an explanation why that might not be happening any longer.

According to sources, Jen seems to have called it off to work things out. We don’t know if it is true or not, but it’s nice to dream.
