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.

Zac has always kept relative composure in the public eye. It is only when people get messy that the media begins to investigate.
It came as a surprise to me... but then I started looking at the signs and his behavior that felt out of character, and it all began to make sense.

the condom drop
his weight fluctuation from week to week.
the mtv movie awards
his disappearance in June

some speculate his yolo tattoo, but that was so long ago, I think that's a tangential circumstance. But we don't know how long it's been going on. It's no secret Zac likes to party, and in that environment your bound to be offered something, and a lil here and there and before you know it, you're addicted.

There have been a few rumors floating around this year about zac and cocaine. and zac not showing up on time for work and dissapearing (although those are fairly recent allegations) And for whatever reason the word never really got out. For the most part the stories seemed to have little validity. But unfortunately now they seem all to plausible.

I'm just thankful he did go to rehab and was able to go without the media waiting for his release to bombard him. He is in Peru right now, but there will no doubt be a strong media presence at his return. Hopefully, they don't find out when he arrives. But if not then, the media bombardment is bound to happen as he will be watched even more now.

No one is immune to addiction. It's stupid that he let himself get into this mess, but at least he hasn't let it destroy him before seeking help.
