Gerard Butler: Seeking Treatment at Betty Ford Center

Posted Friday February 24, 2012 9:52 AM GMT

Celebrities and rehab go hand-in-hand, and Gerard Butler has reportedly been receiving treatment at the Betty Ford Center for substance abuse issues.

According to TMZ, the “P.S. I Love You” hunk began using prescription pain medication back in 2006 while filming “300,” and it’s been an ongoing battle ever since.

In December, Butler suffered a serious injury while working on “Of Men and Mavericks,” causing him to realize he needed help with his struggle.

Gerard decided that he was ‘relying too much on prescription drugs’ and wanted to get treatment before his habit became a debilitating addiction. He’s been in Betty Ford Center for three weeks and will be released today.
