Matthew Perry’s Going Back to Rehab

This is pretty commendable: Actor Matthew Perry, who previously did three stints in rehab for alcohol abuse and prescription pill addiction, is going back to rehab but not because he relapsed, he just wants to continue his recovery process.

In a public statement, Matthew said, “I’m making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.”

Basically Matthew’s doing more than just the standard AA and NA treatments. He’s putting his money to good use and aggressively ensuring that he’s living his life sober. He also seems to have a pretty good handle on how the Internet reacts to the news of ANYONE going to rehab, even if they’re not some total fuck up.

Sorry I had to start the day with such positive news, I know that that’s probably not what you were hoping for. ;)

  • And we’ve all heard of SO MANY people going into rehab “just for a tune-up” ala Whitney Houston just days ago. Why release a ridiculous statement like that instead of just keeping quiet?
