Hollywood actor-filmmaker Ben Affleck has checked himself into a rehab centre. The actor has been fighting a battle against alcohol addiction for several years now and he has been quite open about his battle.
 
The actor was in the rehab earlier in 2001 and 2017. After the successful completion of his stint in 2017, the actor had written a post on Facebook. " I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," Affleck wrote at the time. "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."

Affleck's estranged wife Garner was clicked entering Affleck's home on Wednesday. They were later clicked getting into an SUV with Garner taking the driver's seat. 

Affleck and Garner announced their separation in 2015 after being married for 10 years. They filed for a divorce in 2017 but it hasn't been finalised yet. The couple has two children together.
