Bible in hand, Jennifer Garner takes Ben Affleck to rehab
Ben Affleck is heading back to rehab after his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, asked him to go amid the actor’s ongoing struggle with alcohol addiction.
On Wednesday, Garner appeared at the 46-year-old’s home, accompanied her lawyer, and her Bible. According to the Daily Mail, Affleck did not argue and willingly decided to go to rehab.
Garner drove Affleck to a live-in rehab facility in Malibu called The Canyon Treatment Center, where he checked-in for an extended stay. The Canyon is a “state-of-the-art private-pay treatment program housed on 120 beautiful acres near the Malibu coastline” frequented by celebrities like Affleck.
Even though Garner is trying to help Affleck get proper treatment, the couple have been separated since 2015. In April 2017, Garner officially filed for divorce, though the two have yet to complete the necessary paperwork.
Despite the lengthy separation, the couple have stayed close and extremely cordial, keeping in mind the best interest of their three kids. According to TMZ, Garner does not want her kids to be without their father.
This isn’t Affleck’s first stint in rehab, as he has been seen at many different rehab centers in LA over the years. Just last week, he was seen taking a course at the LA Refuge Recovery.
In March of 2017, he updated he took to Facebook to shared that he had “completed treatment for alcohol addiction,” something he noted he’s “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,” the post continued. “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.”
Garner has been vocal about her faith over the past couple of years amid her estranged husband’s battle with addiction.
