Robin Williams Back In Rehab For 'Continued Commitment' To Sobriety

Robin Williams has checked into a rehab facility to help stay sober.

"After working back-to-back projects, Robin is simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud," his publicist says in a statement.

The 62-year-old Williams sought treatment for alcohol addiction in 2006 after battling substance abuse nearly two decades earlier in his career.

The death of his friend, comic John Belushi, is what made him want to give up drugs.

"Was it a wake-up call?' he recalled a few years ago. "Oh yeah, on a huge level."

Williams is at Hazelden's The Lodge, which is known for helping patients maintain long-term sobriety.

According to his publicist, he will remain there for several weeks.
