"The Munsters" ' Butch Patrick has entered a rehabilitation center in a bid to beat his 40-year addiction to booze and drugs. The former child star, who played Eddie Munster in the 1960s TV show, has battled problems with cocaine, marijuana and alcohol for decades.

Patrick, 57, checked himself in to a facility in New Jersey on Wednesday, November 10 in an attempt to "get a grip on his addiction and educate himself," reports TMZ.com. A representative for the star tells the website, "We have thought he could possibly be a product of the child star problem... and are thankful he will take control of his fate."

Patrick's relatives, who have reportedly been encouraging the star to seek help for 30 years, are said to be "very happy and supportive" of his decision to enter rehab.
