As OK! readers know, Ben Affleck has been going through it lately. He's in the middle of his latest stint in rehab after a difficult intervention staged by ex-wife Jennifer Garner. Though this is not his first time seeking treatment, sources have claimed that the actor is more focused than ever. Read on for the latest.
It’s been 30 days since Ben went to rehab, which is the typical amount of time before a patient is discharged. But a source for Us Weekly confirmed that he has decided to extend his treatment past this timeframe.
“He seems to be taking things more seriously this time,” the insider claimed. “He feels really bad and sorry about doing this because of the kids.”
Another source for the magazine claimed that the Justice League star has been totally dedicated to his rehabilitation. Getting help “is all that matters to him right now,” they claimed.
With his bustling career on a brief hold, and his three kids—Samuel, 6, Seraphina, 9, Violet, 12—in the primary care of their mom Jennifer, Ben’s struggle has brought national attention to the reality of alcoholism. “Ben is not shy about his issues around addiction, particularly since he made that conversation public,” the second Us Weekly source said.
