Colin Farrell Checks Into Rehab

Irish actor Colin Farrell has checked into the Meadows, an exclusive Arizona rehab center that caters to high-paying clientele. The move comes just as Farrell celebrated 12 years of sobriety.

When the 41-year-old first rose to fame, he quickly gained the reputation of being a Hollywood “bad boy.” His notoriety for drinking and womanizing quickly pushed aside his earlier acclaim for acting. Things came to a head during the filming of 2005’s “Miami Vice.” Farrell later claimed that he had few memories of making the movie due to his drug and alcohol abuse.

Once filming wrapped, the actor checked himself into rehab. At that time, he’d recently had a child with his ex-girlfriend, Kim Bordenave, and said that he wanted to be sober to become a better father. It seemed to work. Farrell cleaned himself up and stopped making headlines for bad behavior.

His career slowed for years but recently began picking up speed again with films like the Harry Potter spinoff, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

According to a source close to Farrell, it’s his increasingly busy schedule that is causing problems. The source claims that Farrell is still sober but has voluntarily checked into the Meadows to head off a potential relapse.

The Meadows is a highly regarded facility with a roster of famous patients. Selena Gomez, Tiger Woods, Rush Limbaugh, Kate Moss, and Michael Douglas are just a few of the celebs to seek help at the Arizona desert rehab center.
