Charlie Sheen bit the bullet this week and checked himself in to a rehabilitation center as a “preventative measure”. The actor, whose wife is currently trying to beat a crack addiction, is said to be very stressed by the domestic violence charges looming over his head and was afraid he’d fall off the wagon harder than ever before. People in Charlie’s crew are saying that this is legit, though. Supposedly he’s not hitting the bottle again and he just wants to make sure that he doesn’t mess his family up any more than they already are.
A friend of Charlie’s spoke to People Magazine and said, “Charlie is stressed. He’s tired. The kids are on his mind. Brooke’s on his mind. A lot of things are on his mind. He didn’t want to get a place where he had the urge to get high. He’s not using and he doesn’t want to. He felt like he needed to get away from negative influences around him and clear his head, rest and take a short break.”
If that’s the truth, that sounds like it’s just about the most mature thing that he ever did.
