Robin Williams Maintains His Sobriety In Rehab


Actor Robin Williams wants to focus on maintaining his sobriety as he returns to a rehab center in Minnesota.

His representative confirmed that the star will be staying at Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center for weeks. However, he has not been drinking, but rather simply wanted to keep his focus on his commitment to be alcohol-free.

According to his representative, the actor decided to take his time off at The Lodge, known for helping patients maintain long-term sobriety.

After working back-to-back projects, Robin is simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud,” said his rep.

The Lodge is a place which “immerse you in the Twelve Step design for living that can inform and transform every aspect of your life.

It’s no secret that the star has been open about the challenges he had faced with alcohol. He even admitted his addicted to cocaine in the 1970s and the 1980s, according to Mail Online.

Citing Daily Digest News, KDramaStars stated that Williams started rehab in mid-2000 and “came out a renewed man.” He stayed clear of rehab centers for years until he sought treatment from The Lodge in June 2014.

It’s hard admitting it, once you’ve done that, it’s real easy. You think people don’t notice. Then you find out later, ‘We knew… You went outside naked.’ No, I didn’t. But even the dog was like, ‘What’s wrong, boy?’ Humiliation gives you humility,” Williams was quoted as telling “Good Morning America,” by KDramaStars.

He added, “Addiction waits. It lays in wait for the time when you think, ‘It’s fine now, I’m OK.’ Then, the next thing you know, it’s not OK.”
