…Ben Affleck said, I’ll go-go-go!
Tuesday the actor revealed, in a Facebook post, that he recently completed a stint in rehab for alcohol addiction.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote on Facebook. Affleck checked himself into rehab in 2001 as well.
“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,” he continued. “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.”
In the Facebook post, Affleck said he’s “lucky to have the love of … co-parent, Jen.” Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner separated back in 2015, but they have formally not gotten divorced yet. Together they have three children, two daughters and one son.
The actor will be back on screen, as the Dark Knight in “Justice League,” which premieres Nov. 17.
