After years of addiction Ben Affleck completes treatment

Ben Affleck has revealed he has completed treatment for alcohol addiction. The actor disclosed his treatment in a statement on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be.”

Affleck previously sought treatment for alcohol abuse in 2001. “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 wrote.

“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.”

IFrame Warner Bros announced back in January that Affleck was stepping down from his ‘Batman’ directing duties. At the time he said the decision was made because the role “demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give.”

“It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require,” he said at the time. He was replaced by Matt Reeves in February.

Affleck will still produce and star in the film for Warner Bros., which like CNN is owned by Time Warner. “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery,” Affleck added in his post. Affleck was most recently seen in public at the 2017 Academy Awards in February.
