Matthew Perry Heads Back to Rehab to Focus on Sobriety
Friends star Matthew Perry has announced that he will head enter into a rehab for a 30 day program as a preventative move as he continues in his recovery from alcohol and prescription pill addiction.
Sources say the actor has not relapsed, but is returning to rehab in the very near future.
In a statement, Perry wrote, "I'm making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and continue my life in recovery. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web."
