Ben Affleck has accomplished a 40-day keep at a California rehab facility for alcohol habit … and is now in outpatient care.
Affleck posted a message Thursday, saying, “The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.”
TMZ broke the story … Jennifer Garner staged an intervention at Ben’s Pacific Palisades house again in August. Garner then drove Ben to a Malibu facility the place he’s been in therapy ever since, with occasional breaks for work and journeys to his house gymnasium.
Ben continues, “Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle … As I’ve had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of courage, not weakness or failure.”
