Matthew Perry is headed back to a treatment facility as part of his ongoing recovery for a years-long addiction to alcohol and prescription pills.
The Friends star confirmed the news and even cracked a joke, saying:
- "I'm making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.â€
We'd never do a thing like that Matthew!
Unfortunately the actor's ABC show, Mr. Sunshine, isn't doing so well in the ratings and could be canceled this year.
Since Perry is the show's creator/star/producer, he may have been under a lot of stress recently. We're glad to see the star take a proactive role in getting/staying well.
This isn't Perry's first trip to rehab, the star also entered recovery in 2001 and in 1997 for alcohol and prescription pill addiction..
