This is a list of over 60 actors who went to rehab, with photos. Rehabilitation is no joke, yet when a celeb enters detox, we can't help but stare. Unfortunately for celebs, there is a double standard. When substance abuse affects an ordinary individual it is thought to be the result of stress or depression. With celebrities we tend to blame their extravagance getting the better of them (and the luxury rehab centers they attend don't help their case).

As Robin Williams joked, "Cocaine is God's way of telling you you are making too much money." That said, alcoholism is a disease, and there are worse things than alcohol, such as heroin, cocaine, crack, and meth. Treatment centers also deal with more than just drug abuse. pOple can go to the hospital for conditions such as anorexia as well. At the end of the day, though, we should respect the actors on this list for seeking the help they needed.

Who are the most famous Hollywood actors who went to rehab? Take a look at this list and you'll see the celebrities who have been to a drug rehabilition center.

According to ET, Affleck's ex-wife Jennifer Garner drove him to rehab on August 22, 2018. Affleck allegedly knew he needed help, and Garner was there to support him.

This is the actor's third time in a rehab facility for alcohol abuse. He has been open about his struggles in the past, too. In March 2017, he posted on Facebook, saying alcohol addiction is "something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront... 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."
