AceShowbiz - Ben Affleck is serious when it comes to getting a grip on yourself and overcoming his alcohol addiction. The "Gone Girl" actor, who checked into a rehab last month, was spotted looking "better" and "healthier" in a recent outing before returning to the rehab facility in Malibu.
"On Saturday, Ben got a morning haircut at the Malibu Wave Salon," a source tells PEOPLE. The source also adds that the Oscar winner "spent time at his Pacific Palisades house before returning to rehab."
"He had another workout session with a trainer," the source continues speaking of the 46-year-old, adding that Ben, who has been given permission to come and go at the facility, "has had a workout at home every day this week. He looks so much better and seems healthier. He knows he needs to stay focused and listen to those around him."
Previous report revealed that the father of three "goes home to his gym to work out with his trainers." The source goes on saying, "Since last week, he's been driven from the clinic every day from rehab to the house to work out for a few hours a day. He’s always accompanied by his coach and therapist."
With the help of estranged wife Jennifer Garner, Ben re-entered a rehab facility on August 22. Jennifer, who staged the intervention at Ben's Pacific Palisades home, was photographed driving the actor to some of the finest rehab centers after stopping at a fast food restaurant near the Pacific Coast Highway.
A source claimed that Ben had been "struggling" with sobriety since breaking up with longtime girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. In recent days, the "Justice League" star has been linked to Playboy playmate Shauna Sexton, who is half his age.
The drama came 10 days after the actor was spotted leaving an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. He completed a treatment programme after battling alcoholism in March 2017, and took to Facebook to explain his actions, stating, "I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step."
