Burt Reynolds is in rehab for an addiction to pain killers according to what his manager told Us Weekly
“After a recent back surgery, Mr. Reynolds felt like he was going through hell and after a while, realized he was a prisoner of prescription pain pills,” his manager said in a statement Wednesday. “He checked himself into rehab in order to regain control of his life.”
His manager added: “Mr. Reynolds hopes his story will help others in a similar situation. He hopes they will not try to solve the problem by themselves, but realize that sometimes it is too tough to do on their own and they should seek help, as he did.”
Good for the 73 year old actor to admitting he had a problem before it got too bad. His stint proves you are never to old to go to rehab.
