Ben Affleck revealed that he recently completed treatment for alcohol addiction.
 
"I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," he wrote on Facebook.
 
Affleck previously received treatment for alcohol addiction back in 2001 when he was 28.
 
"I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be," he continued. "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."
 
Affleck and his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, share Violet, 11; Seraphina, 8; and Samuel, 5.
 
"This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery," he said.
