BRAD Pitt reportedly attended a special VIP facility for professional help in getting sober following his split from Angelina Jolie.
Sources told The New York Post that Pitt’s team urged him to get help at a discreet Los Angeles centre designed for high-profile Hollywood figures.
Pitt attended meetings and therapy sessions at the facility in a private residence, sources say, which was reportedly set up by a wealthy individual who had suffered with substance issues and wanted to help others in a similar position.
Brad Pitt has spoken openly about his split from Angelina Jolie.
Insiders say that it provides “intense” group and one-on-one programs to aid with recovery from dependency, among other things.
“He has used this time for a lot of self-reflection, self-improvement,” said a source.
In an interview with GQ Style published last week, Pitt opened up about his struggles with alcohol. But he did not mention rehab.
“I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something,” he told the men’s magazine, adding that although he had quit drugs when he started a family, around the time Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016, “I was boozing too much.
It’s just become a problem.”
The World War Z star — who has six children with Jolie, Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight — also said that he is addressing some of his emotional issues without numbing his feelings with alcohol.
“Sitting with those horrible feelings, and needing to understand them, and putting them into place,” said Pitt, who adds in the article that he is now in therapy.
“In the end, you find: I am those things I don’t like. That is a part of me. I can’t deny that. I have to accept that. And in fact, I have to embrace that. I need to face that and take care of that.”
