Ben Affleck checks into rehab after ex-wife Jennifer Garner holds intervention

Ben Affleck has checked into rehab.

Actor Ben Affleck was pictured driving to rehab yesterday by his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

TMZ has stated that Jennifer held an intervention after a month of wild partying. He is reportedly checked into the Canyon live-in rehab facility, in Malibu where he will stay for an "extended amount of time."

Apparently, Ben "fell off the wagon," a few weeks ago and has "gotten progressively worse."

Last year, Ben revealed on his Facebook page that he completed a stint in rehab.

He wrote:

"I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront.

"I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.'

"I'm lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do."

We wish him the very best.
