Ben Affleck: “I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction”

Well he kept that one quiet!

Ben Affleck just revealed that he has successfully completed a stint in rehab for his alcohol addiction. Congratulations, Ben!

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he shared in a statement last night.

“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.”

We’re impressed! No doubt this has something to do with getting his relationship with Jennifer Garner back on track.

We told you just last week that she had decided to call off the divorce in an attempt to give their marriage another go – news which we were absolutely delighted with – and it definitely looks like this is a step in the right direction.

While there are currently no signs of them officially reuniting, we bet that Ben’s treatment will have a real positive effect on the situation.

We wish nothing but the best for this couple, and really hope they can show other A-listers a thing or two about working on a marriage.
