"I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," the actor posted on his Facebook page.
Ben's Rehab Journey
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in 2012, he previously said, that he went to rehab at the age 29 because he was partying too much and he does not have limits in drinking alcohol. He also shared that some of the reasons why he drinks too much are to clear his head and try to get some idea of who he wants to be.
It can be recalled that Affleck and his wife, Jennifer Garner, announced a divorce last June 2015 after 10 years of marriage. It was also brought up during their break-up that Affleck had an affair with their kid's nanny. Since then, Affleck and Garner have been settling matters regarding their divorce. Although, some say that they are working things out for reconciliation.
Ben's Achievements Beyond His Drinking Problem

Since then, he has enjoyed different achievements. He also received a lot of praises for his role as an illicit and perchance homicidal husband in the psychological 2014 thriller "Gone Girl". Although, his recent efforts haven't done well with either for the critics or the box office such as "The Accountant", in which Affleck played as an autistic accountant, and the gangster film "Live by Night."
