Ben Affleck announces he’s completed treatment for alcohol addiction

Warner Bros.

Ben Affleck just released a statement on Facebook, announcing that he’s completed treatment for alcohol addiction. This was the first step of many towards a positive recovery, he said.

You can check out his full statement below:

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. 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. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

In January, Affleck announced that he would not be directing The Batman as previously planned. Instead, Matt Reeves will be taking over with Affleck remaining in the cape and cowl.

Affleck is rumored to appear at CinemaCon later this month to promote Justice League.
