Ben Affleck Checks Out of Rehab

Ben Affleck out of rehab but says alcohol addiction is a ‘lifelong struggle’


Ben Affleck has finished a 40-day alcohol rehab programme, but he said battling with alcohol addiction is a “lifelong and difficult struggle”.

The Hollywood actor, who also underwent treatment in 2001 and 2017, wrote on Instagram that seeking help was a “sign of courage, not weakness or failure”.

Affleck added that he now remains in outpatient care.

The 46-year-old wrote: “The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.

“Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that one is never really in or out of treatment.

“It is a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family.”
