Relapse happens. The important thing is that he recognizes he has a problem and he is getting the help he needs.
Matthew Perry announced that he is heading back to rehab as of this week. The Friends star has had a history with substance abuse and has already been to rehab twice before for a prescription pill addiction.
Maybe the third time will take!
Matthew released a statement about his decision, using humor to alleviate some of the tension, but reassuring his fans that he is taking his situation seriously. His statement reads:
"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.”
Nothing to make fun of, Matthew. You have a problem and you working to fight through it. We applaud you and wish you nothing but the best as you try and better yourself.
