Ben Affleck posted an Instagram statement Thursday in which he revealed that he recently completed a 40-day stay at a treatment center and continues his outpatient care for alcohol addiction.
“The support I have received from my family, colleagues, and fans means more to me than I can say,” he wrote. “It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.”
Affleck, 46, entered rehab back in August. He previously sought treatment in 2001 and 2017.
“Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle,” Affleck wrote. “Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full-time commitment.”
