Gerard Butler Rehab

Gerard realized he had a problem with prescriptions and headed to the Betty Ford Center — we’re so glad things didn’t go to far, like they did with fallen icon Whitney Houston!

Gerard Butler has checked himself into rehab for a prescription drug addiction.

Gerard, 42, voluntarily admitted himself into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. three weeks ago, TMZ reports.

His issues allegedly started with pain management while he was shooting the physically-demanding lead role in 300 in 2006. The problem resurfaced with a vengeance after he had a surfing accident on Dec. 18 while filming his new movie Of Men and Mavericks.

Sources close to Gerard also confirm that he struggled with cocaine, but his main issue is the prescription pain management.

Gerard took matters into his own hands to fight an intense addiction, and he’s said to be feeling better and leaving treatment on Feb. 24.

We wish Gerard the best and we’re so glad he’s seeking treatment!

I think its great too. Especially when his career is floundering and he can’t get any meaningful publicity. Has been going the rehab route to resurrect his career. Yawn.

It’s great when people can face up to their problems and deal with them. I wish GB good luck and hope he never goes back.
