As one celebrity leaves rehab, another enters … such is the circle of life here in Hollywood. As you may know, Lindsay Lohan is due to leave the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA sometime this week after spending the last few months housed there. Today we learn that troubled actor, just split from his wife Courteney Cox, David Arquette has checked himself into a rehab facility. After a night of partying on New Year’s Eve, Arquette finally decided that it was time to get his life in order … and checked himself in to rehab.
David Arquette checked himself into rehab during the holiday weekend … TMZ has learned. We’re told David is seeking treatment for alcohol and other issues — but not drugs. Arquette partied at Beacher’s Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel on New Year’s Eve before checking into a live-in facility. A source close to David says he is doing it because it’s “the right thing to do for his family.”
News of this decision is not surprising in the least. In the weeks since Courteney split from David, he has been talking to any and everyone (HERE and HERE) about the problems in the couple’s marriage leading many to believe that he was dealing with something else privately. For her part, Courteney has been SO supportive of her soon-to-be ex-husband thruout their entire break-up … and even issued a statement of support for David once news of his decision to seek rehab treatment broke:
“I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life. I love and support him.”
She is an amazing woman. Here’s hoping that David is serious about tackling his demons and is able to clean himself up. Alcohol addiction is a serious matter … and only a serious attempt to sober up will be successful. I wish David all the luck in the world. He’s gonna need it.
