After having finished a 40-day stint last month in a Malibu clinic, Ben Affleck has returned to the rehab. The actor has admitted to friends that he needs to continue his treatment for more time in order to stay sober, reported Daily Mail. 

"He was going to move out and become an outpatient — but he’s checked back in. He will stay most nights in the clinic. This is not just a disease you cure in one go," told a source close to the actor to the publication. The source added, "Ben has and will always be working hard to get better. He wants to work, see his children and focus on his recovery."

Affleck's return to the rehab comes in a time when his divorce from wife Jennifer Garner got finalized. The two actors have three children, Violet (12), Seraphina (9) and Samuel (6). Affleck has taken the decision to fight for the sake of himself and his family, he revealed in a post he shared on Instagram.

The Oscar-winning actor who has made several visits to the rehab agreed to seek treatment when Garner had an emotional outburst and asked him to get help, reported the publication. Garner has always been the one to help him and, in August, drove him to his rehab facility. The couple maintains a cordial relationship despite their divorce and were seen a day after their divorce got finalized. The couple is sharing the legal custody of their children. 

A few months back, Affleck was rumored to be in a relationship with Playboy model Shauna Sexton. However, it is speculated that Affleck broke-up with Sexton in order to focus on his recovery.
