Ben Affleck has completed treatment for alcohol addiction.
The actor, 44, made the announcement in a Facebook post Tuesday.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. 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. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
The actor and wife Jennifer Garner, 44, announced their separation nearly two years ago but have remained close since, living together much of the time and co-parenting their kids. The pair has often been spotted taking family vacations together and recently celebrated the holidays together in Montana.
Sources previously told PEOPLE that while the two aren’t back together, the divorce continues to be on hold for now after the two weathered recent strains.
“They love each other,” said a source close to the couple. “They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
