According to USA Today, Zac Efron quietly endured a stint in rehab several months ago where he sought treatment for problems with cocaine and alcohol.
The High School Musical actor is clean, sober and counting his blessings now.
“He’s healthy, happy and not drinking. He’s taking time to focus on working,” a source shared to E! News.
“He realized he needed outside help,” another friend explains to US Weekly. “He reached out for it and is doing great now.”
TMZ reported Zac’s alleged drug problem went off the rails while he was filming the upcoming comedy feature Neighbors.
“Sources tell us Zac … was a no-show on a number of days,” TMZ claimed, citing a source connected to the movie. “It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine.”
And whether Zac is eventually proven to have been hooked on either drugs or booze, he’s currently taking things one day at a time. At TIFF, a reporter asked him if he ever gets used to all the attention.
“No, you can’t,” he said. “It’s all ridiculous. It’s cool.”
