Yesterday we learned that actor/comedian Robin Williams has checked back into rehab. According to his publicist, this was a planned stay as a res-pit so he could recharge after about a year and a half of constant work.
His rep emphasized that the 62-year-old actor is “simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment” and has reportedly checked into the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota and will remain for several weeks.
Williams, who battled substance abuse for 30 years, has been open about the challenges of staying sober and had a relapse back in 2006.
