Robin Williams has been open in the past about his issues with drugs and alcohol. He quit cocaine in the early 1980s, then returned to rehab in 2006 after a relapse with alcohol. Now he has checked into the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota.
He has apparently not relapsed again, however. He has entered in order to keep a watch on his long-term sobriety. In a statement to TMZ, Robin’s rep said, “After working back-to-back projects, Robin is simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud.”
Robin is indeed very busy. He currently has six films on the way, including the Night at the Museum and Mrs Doubtfire sequels. He has been quiet on Twitter the last few weeks, but popped in today to root for the USA in the World Cup.
What do you think of Robin’s decision to check into rehab preemptively? Do you know anyone who has struggled with addiction? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
