    Philip Seymour Hoffman Completes Detox for Narcotic Abuse

    Philip Seymour Hoffman has completed a detox program for a drug problem that he wanted to end, according to TMZ.
    The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actor has struggled with substance abuse in the past but recovered twenty-three years ago. He fell off the wagon more than a year ago.
    Philip reportedly told the site that he slowly started using prescription pills before moving to snorting heroin, which lasted a week before he realized he needed help and checked himself into the detox facility.
    After spending 10 days in the facility,Philip checked out last Friday and is already back working on a new movie set in Europe.

    Some prescription pills are frighteningly easy to become addicted to after initially starting on them for genuine reason, particularly if you already have a tendency towards addiction. It's sad that it took him over a year to get help but good for him for finally waking up and dealing with what he was doing to himself once he started back on heroin.

    10 days is enough to get off heroin? I have a hard time buying that.

    Possibly ten days of in patient treatment followed by continuing out patient treatment combined with one of those opiate blocking implants?

    I've loved him since Boogie Nights , and most everything he's done, really. Wishing him the best.

    Not if he only snorted for a week. He pulled the emergency break on time, it seems.

    This is how you do rehab: You check in quietly and once you completed it successfully, you come clean.

    YES!!! Thank you!! I have felt this about him for years, and after his character in Cold Mountain, it just sealed it for me!!! He is creepy as fuck and I just don't trust the guy.

    I met this guy at Sundance when we went a couple years ago. He came and bummed a smoke off me. He was a great guy, and no bad vibes off of him at all.

    I absolutely adore this guy and I am glad he caught himself in time. He's one of my most favorite actors in the last 15 years and I would just be sick if he went the way of Tom Sizemore.

    He's fantastic, hope he is successful with sobriety. Those of you who can't shake the creepster/molester vibe, do NOT watch "Happiness." Lol.

    haha i was just thinking about that. it's funny, i saw that movie years ago but for some reason in the past week i've had three separate conversations about it. it's a fucking fantastic movie though, possibly my favourite todd solondz.
    and yeah, he's creepy in it but even creepier is dylan baker, the guy who plays the suburban paedo dad. now that's what i call creepy face.

    i love PSH and i wish him well.
