EXCLUSIVE …. During a chat with SiriusXM radio host Jenny Hutt, Dr Drew Pinsky discussed Ben Affleck’s completion of a 2 week alcohol detox rehab program. Affleck announced Wednesday that he had been treated after The Oscars for alcohol addiction. What does Dr.Drew think!
Dr. Drew on Ben Affleck’s 2 week rehab stint:
“We don’t know what happened but he’s (Ben) talking about it matter of factly, Gd bless him! Just like if he said he went in and got his appendix out. That’s absolutely how people should approach this. It’s like “Hey, I’m getting care, I’m moving on, I’m going to make some movies..” or whatever it is! It’s just part of his medical management. And he had a crisis, a slip, a whatever, and he’s talking about it. Good for him!
There’s no better way to reduce stigma and shame then to have medical treatment of addiction take its place along side of other medical treatment.”
