Ben Affleck is in treatment for the sake of his kids and ex Jennifer Garner, says brother Casey
Casey Affleck, 43, opened up about what his brother is going through, noting that his family is what ultimately drove him to get clean.
“Alcoholism has a huge impact on not just the person, but also their family. So, I think for his kids’ sake and for their mom, and for himself, he’s trying to do the work and get it together,” Casey said.
“Ben is an addict and an alcoholic. Most of my grandparents are alcoholics. My father is an alcoholic, as bad as you can be, and he’s been sober for about 30 years. I’ve been sober for about six years,” Casey said. “Ben is trying to put it together, and it can be a very hard thing to do. He has the kind of resources and time, luckily, to take the time and go to a good facility.”
