Chris Klein Checks Into Rehab Place Where Lindsay Lohan Was Once Treated


Chris Klein


The 'American Pie' star went to Cirque Lodge, the rehabilitation facility in Utah, after he was taken into custody for driving under the influence.

"American Pie" star Chris Klein has checked himself in a rehabilitation facility in Utah to deal with alcohol addiction following his arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) last week. The actor's car was pulled over by police in Los Angeles on June 16 and he was taken into custody after failing a sobriety test.

He was released from jail hours later on $25,000 bail and now Klein is seeking professional help at the Cirque Lodge to battle his drinking problem. His representative, Jaime Primak, tells People.com, "After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he cannot beat this disease alone."

"He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so." The 31-year-old star has enrolled in a 30-day program and Primak reveals the actor is committed to staying longer if necessary.

Klein was previously arrested in February, 2005 on a similar charge. He pleaded guilty to DUI on that occasion and was ordered to complete 150 hours of community service with the Red Cross, in addition to paying a $1,800 fine.

Cirque Lodge is a popular choice for troubled celebrities - Lindsay Lohan checked into the treatment centre in 2007, while Melanie Griffith completed a stint at the same location last year.
