Ben Affleck Reveals Alcohol Addiction and Treatment


Ben Affleck has revealed he recently underwent treatment for alcohol addiction.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” the actor wrote on his Facebook page.

He continued, noting his family has been top of mind. “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.”

Though he and his wife, Jennifer Garner, announced a split in June 2015, outlets including People recently reported the two are working on reconciliation. They have three children: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8 and Samuel, 5.

“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,” Affleck wrote on Tuesday, in closing. “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
