Finally seeking the help that he seems to desperately need, Charlie Sheen has checked into a rehabilitation center.
Coming just a day after he was treated in hospital for a hernia, the "Two and a Half Men" actor was admitted to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital on Thursday (January 27) after complaining about abdominal pain, caused by a hiatal hernia.
He was discharged later on Thursday to continue his recovery at home, but on Friday (January 28), his publicist Stan Rosenfield confirmed the star is seeking professional treatment for unspecified issues.
Rosenfield told the Los Angeles Times, "He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern. Sheen asks that his privacy be respected at this time and that no additional informational will be provided."
It is the actor's third stint in rehab - he previously sought help for drug problems in 1998, while he checked into a medical facility last year as a "preventive" measure following his Christmas Day altercation with wife Brooke Mueller in 2009.
