Ben Affleck recently completed a stint in rehab for alcohol addiction.

The 44-year-old actor, who separated from his wife Jennifer Garner in the summer 2015, revealed the news to his fans in a lengthy Facebook post Tuesday.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” Affleck wrote. “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.”

This isn’t the first time Affleck has been in a rehabilitation facility. He also went in 2001, which he blamed on too much partying.

“I went to rehab for being 29 and partying too much and not having a lot of boundaries and to clear my head and try to get some idea of who I wanted to be,” Affleck said during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in 2012. “It was more a ‘let me get myself straight,’ before it became a rite of passage.”

Affleck and Garner have three children together. Though they are separated, their divorce is still not finalized.
