Juctice League Star, Ben Affleck who checked out of Rehab in 2017, is back on the addiction train. He had sought help from his estranged wife, who staged an intervention and drove him to a rehab facility in Malibu on the 22nd of August.
Turns out, Ben had been attending wellness classes at a Los Angeles wellness center specialized in “Buddhist ethics” meaning meditation with a focus on a healthy body, mind and spirit. But it wasn’t working and this caused him to indulge more in his alcohol addiction.
Ben’s estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, staged an intervention the 22nd of August after she saw a picture of him accepting a box of hard liquor.
The Bat Man actor has been open about his struggles with sobriety over the years. After Ben completed his second stint at a rehab facility last year, he said,
“I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. 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.”
“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.”
