From People:
Zac Efron Completed Rehab Stint

Zac Efron hasn't been seen out and about on the nightclub scene as of late – and it sounds like there's a reason.

The actor, 25, completed a stint in rehab about five months ago, sources confirm to PEOPLE.

The actor – who recently walked the carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival – is "doing great," a source tells PEOPLE. "He's taking care of himself and it shows."

Efron will next star in Parkland, a drama about the Kennedy assassination. "It's really a surreal experience for me," he tells USA Today of working on the film. "It feels very mature and really interesting. It's a whole different kind of filmmaking and I feel blessed to have been a part of it."

I'm not surprised by this news. I am happy for him and I have a lot of respect for him being self aware enough that he realized he needed to change a behavioral pattern before it seriously affected his well-being. I am also glad his parents maintain an active role in his life and support him and help him to make the best choices for himself. Hollywood is a difficult place to exist in. A lot of people don't like to see that accompanying the money, fame and success, are a host of negative things. It becomes a very isolated existence, even if you have a lot of friends. Let's look to the future and not the past, he is clearly on a positive path and I'm happy about that.

Additional note (Sep 19th):
Now that this is out, many people will try to make a quick buck by selling their story. So please take new stories with a grain of salt cause some of it doesn't add up.

I just read in Perez Hilton's blog that he allegedly struggled with cocaine addiction. I was just wondering if anyone read this somewhere else. I don't know if I can trust on what Perez says. Of course, his rep didn't confirm this. I'm just confused, that would be really scary.

Honestly, it doesn't matter what drug it was, whether it was coke, pot, alcohol, etc. It performs the same function in a person's life, it cripples the same way, it leaves the same devastation. If you want I can tell you horror stories about the alcoholic I once lived with - it will set your hair on end.

I agree with you 100%, I will still support Zac no matter what his problem is or what it has to do with. I didn't mean to say that a coke problem is more serious than an alcohol problem, both can wreck lives apart. I was just wondering :)
It's just that the news caught me off guard, I really wasn't expecting this. Though now that we know, it explains his behaviour and some other stuff from earlier.
I hope I dind't offend anyone, I love Zac to death.

You didn't offend me.(: It's just there are myths around drugs, like one is okay and another is not, that I like to dispel.
