American actor Ben Affleck uses his Instagram profile to verbally comment on his treatment at a detox clinic.
The Hollywood star had been treated for 40 days because of his alcohol dependence. The Hollywood star now explains via Instagram that he has completed the treatment but will continue to be treated on an outpatient basis. Affleck also thanked the fans and his family for the convalescence he received during the treatment.
“The support I received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. She has given me strength to talk to others about my illness, “says Affleck in the statement. “Fighting dependency is a lifelong and difficult struggle. That’s why you’re never really in or out of treatment. It’s a full-time job. I fight for myself and my family. “
He continues, “So many people have used social media and talked about their own experience of addiction. I would like to thank these people. Your strength is inspirational and supports me in ways I did not think possible. It helps to know that I’m not alone. “
Since the end of August he had been in a withdrawal clinic. He reminded himself, Affleck wrote now on Instagram, “that if you have a problem, it’s a sign of courage to seek help, not weakness or failure.”
