Ben Affleck has been dealing with a lot lately and decided to go public about his alcohol addition.
In a Facebook post, Affleck revealed why that he had gone to rehab.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction,” Affleck wrote. “Something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront.”

The Oscar-winning star concluded his post with saying, “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
