In the mid 90s, he became sober but veered off the path of sobriety until he sought residential addiction treatment for his issues in 2001 and then again in 2017. In 2018, Affleck relapsed again and was sober until now.
After one year of sobriety, Ben Affleck relapsed again this past weekend. He attended a Hollywood Halloween party where it appeared that he was stumbling and had to use the side of an SUV to hold himself steady while waiting to walk to another vehicle. Affleck admits to the relapse saying, “It happens. It was a slip. But I’m not going to let it derail me.”
