Afleck, 46, who also went to rehab in 2017 and 2001, said in a posting on his Instagram account that he remained in outpatient care, and thanked his family, friends and fans for their support.
“Battling any addiction is a lifelong and dificult struggle. Because of that one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full time commitment. I am ighting for myself and my family,” he wrote.
Afleck has three children with actress Jennifer Garner. The couple separated in 2015 but in August Garner was pictured in Los Angeles driving Affleck to a treatment centre.
