Gerard Butler “in Rehab” for Prescription Drug Dependency

Posted by on February 24, 2012 at 10:15 AM EST

It’s been reported that Scottish actor Gerard Butler, 42,  has checked into rehab and is being treated at the Betty Ford Clinic for addiction to pain relief medication.

It seems that Butler’s problems started when he began experiencing extreme pain after the making of action flick 300 back in 2006. And a surfing accident in December last year is thought to have added to the issues. 

Butler has previously discussed how tough he found it to adjust after shooting wrapped on the physically-gruelling movie, in which Butler plays King Sparta, and his full-on training program suddenly stopped.
