Robin Williams is in rehab, but not because he’s drinking again.
A spokesperson for the 62-year-old Academy Award winning actor and comedian says he’s reconnecting with a 12-step program during a brief stay at a facility in Minnesota.
Publicist Mara Buxbaum says Williams planned the visit as a respite to recharge after more than 18 straight months of work and remains extremely proud of his continued commitment to sobriety.
Robin Williams has been open about the challenges of staying sober. He went for treatment in 2006 when he relapsed and returned to drinking after 20 years.
