Hollywood actor Ben Affleck has completed treatment for alcoholism.The star made the revelation in a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday, March 14, 2017.
The 44-year-old father of three said the condition was, “something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. He said he was looking for ways to stop his addiction but when he stumbled upon an article “is alcoholism hereditary?” he said, that was it for his addiction.
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.”
Affleck, who previously went to muse inpatient drug rehab in 2001, said he was fortunate to have the love and support of family and friends including his “co-parent, Jen”.
