Brendon, 44, checked himself into a California rehab facility on June 1 to “to treat his depression, alcoholism and substance abuse problems,” according to a past statement on his Facebook page.
The actor has been arrested three times this year on different charges, including public intoxication, grand theft and criminal mischief. He says he’s tried tackling his problems with therapy and outpatient services but realized he needed to “take an extended break and treat the underlying issues of his illnesses,” the statement read.
Brendon split from wife Moonda Tee in February after five months of marriage. In an interview in March he said his substance abuse issues stem from an ongoing battle with depression and difficulty dealing with memories of being molested as a child.
On June 26 his Facebook page had an update posted by a woman named Andrea, presumably his spokesperon Andrea Albin. She writes how Brendon’s 30-day treatment was almost up and the actor would be “accepting sobriety as one of the most amazing gifts in his life.”
