Ben Affleck is determined to get over his alcohol addiction. Affleck reportedly continues to undergo alcohol addiction treatment months after he finished his stint in rehab. On Wednesday, the "Justice League" star was spotted at an outpatient treatment center in Los Angeles.

Affleck has battled alcohol addiction for many years. He first sought treatment in 2001 and completed a second program earlier this year. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be,” he wrote in a March 14 Facebook post, referencing his three children — Violet, 12, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5 — whom he shares with estranged wife Jennifer Garner. “I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”

The Oscar winner continued in his post, “I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my coparent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
