Alcoholism Rehab Success Story: Ben Affleck
Many people struggle with alcoholism for different reasons, but often celebrities are put under a microscope when they have addiction issues. It’s understandable that most people can’t relate to or sympathize with celebrities with addictions, but one very important lesson can be taken from certain celebrities who have dealt with alcoholism or other substance addictions in the past like Ben Affleck. That lesson is being able to come to the self-realization that you have a problem and you need professional help fixing it.
A few years ago, the Oscar winning Affleck lived a reckless lifestyle which was accompanied by a gambling problem that led him to suffer from an addiction to alcohol. A few months into this lifestyle, Affleck finally realized that he had a problem. He called friends to let them know he wanted and needed help, and through friends and contacts he was eventually led to a drug and alcoholism rehabilitation center in Malibu called Promises. Other celebrities like Charlie Sheen, Brittany Spears, and Robert Downey Jr. have all underwent treatments at the same facility. At Promises, Ben underwent alcoholism detoxification as well as mental and physical therapies in order to sober up and regain focus in his life. Affleck has since regained his dedication to his career and he has been the star of many successful films in the past few years, highlighted the 2010 film that he starred in and directed, The Town.
