Keith Urban Opens Up About His Rehab Stint



Keith Urban praised his wife, Nicole Kidman, and thanked his fans for their support during his three-month stay at a rehab center for alcohol abuse treatment.

Country music star Keith Urban said in a video message to fans posted Monday January 22nd to his official Web site (keithurban.net), rehab was "one of the most impactful times of my whole life."

Urban, entered the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on Oct. 19 last year, decided to stay for three months because he realized that learning to abstain was only part of the process to recovery. "Learning about abstinence was one thing, but then there was all this other area of my life to start learning about, and so 30 days became 60, and 60 days became 90, and with each week that passed I found myself really learning how to surrender," he said.

In the posted message, Urban praised his wife, Nicole Kidman, and thanked his fans for their support during his three-month stay at rehab. "It helped so much. Especially through a lot of the lonely days, which there was plenty of those in there. But my wife stayed extraordinarily strong and loving, and my friends and family were there, and man, it's just been really overwhelming. I feel so much gratitude, and it feels really good to have gone through it and be where I am right now."
