Gerard Butler leaves rehab after treatment for substance abuse

Washington , Sat, 25 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 25 (ANI): Gerard Butler has left rehab after completing his treatment for reliance on prescription drugs, his representative has confirmed.


The 42-year-old actor had quietly been admitted to Betty Ford Center three weeks ago.


"Gerard left Betty Ford early this morning and he's healthy," Butler's manager Alan Siegel told


The actor's problems were triggered by the physical demands of shooting '300' in 2006.


Apparently, he began struggling with pain management, and the problem became exacerbated while filming 'Of Men and Mavericks,' when he was badly hurt on Dec 18 during a surfing accident.


Butler realized he was relying too much on prescription drugs and decided to head off a full-blown addiction by entering Betty Ford three weeks ago.


According to sources, he also developed issues with cocaine, but the root problem appears to be the injuries and pain management. (ANI)
