Philip Seymour Hoffman Treated For Heroin Addiction

June 3, 2013

Sad news out of Hollywood…one of our favourite actors Philip Seymour Hoffman is being treated for heroin addiction.

Hoffman, 45, completed 10 days of rehab on Friday on the US East Coast and is now back in Europe filming a movie. He told TMZ that “a great group of friends and family” encouraged him to get help.

The Oscar winner went from using prescription pills to snorting heroin. He was snorting heroin for about a week until he quickly realised he needed help, so checked himself into rehab.

He had been clean for 23 years, until last year.

We wish Hoffman all the best in his recovery.
